MP Nick Gibb attended Felpham Sailing Club to celebrate the success of the club’s youth team at the West Sussex Schools Youth Sailing Association Regatta (WSSYSA), and assisted in the launch of the FSC Annual Bath-Tub Race.

More than 140 young sailors from across the county had taken part in the 25th annual WSSYSA Regatta, which was held at Cobnor Activity Centre this year. Felpham Sailing Club fielded a team of 40 children in 33 racing dinghies and took the team prize once more with Seaford College and Chichester Yacht Club taking second and third places.
