Launching a Canoe, Kayak or Dinghy at Cobnor


NB Maximum size is 16ft, sorry but no catamarans or windsurfers, or boats heavier than a Wayfarer The cost is £10 per week for canoes/kayaks and £20 per week for dinghies- for shorter periods, please make a donation to the Cobnor Activities Centre, to help keep its wheelchair accessible boat running


Third Party Insurance

Please note that, for the protection of all, third party insurance is a requirement for all boat-owners using Cobnor as is required by Chichester Harbour Conservancy.



Please take one of the car permits from the laundry room to park in the car park.

Cars are only allowed past the car park for loading and unloading by the BSC pavilion (20 mins max).

No vehicles to go into the dinghy park or down the slipway.


Boats, trolleys, trailers

Please keep your trailer, and park your dinghy, in the car park. Trolleys may be left on the North side of the main slipway but not to the South.


The Winch

Children must not operate the winch unless an adult takes full responsibility for close supervision. Do not take more than 3 turns on the drum and never let the rope wind up.

In an emergency press the red cut-off button. If the winch is not working it is likely that the cut-off button is stuck down - wiggle it to release it. If the winch still does not work, please report the problem to us immediately.

Remember that power machinery is dangerous and take great care.


Changing Rooms/Showers/Toilets

The code for the door will be given to you on arrival. Do help to keep them in good shape .. and let me know if there are any problems. Do also use the toilet block opposite, which is left open during busy periods


Private Areas

The area South of the dinghy park, including the old boathouse and that part of the foreshore, is private. If you wish to walk South along the seabank, please take the footpath which runs along the West side of the dinghy park and behind the boathouse.

Please also respect the private areas of the Activities Centres.


Remember to pay your Harbour Dues - contact the Harbour Office at Itchenor (tel: 01243 512301) and display your plaque..
