Money goes to hospice


One of the smallest yacht clubs on the South Coast has raised a massive £110,000 for a local hospice. Members of the Inn-shore Cruising Club, East Wittering, raised their latest donation: £9,541 which was handed to Lady Pippa Blake, patron of the Hospice St Wilfrid’s, in Chichester.  

The money is raised with a sponsored race: the St Wilfred’s Coastal Challenge which takes place over a 12 nautical mile course, starting outside Chichester harbour, around the Nab Tower and back.

Interested sailing clubs that would like to participate in next year’s event on Saturday, September 24, 2011, should contact Patrick Doyle, tel: 07801 819884 or email
