You’ll find a vibrant sailing community in Itchenor and buzz of activity on the water, as boats, kayaks, and SUP boards take to the water. This is also the setting off point for the Harbour Tours run by Chichester Harbour Conservancy. Take a moment to sit and soak up the atmosphere while enjoying a hand-crafted coffee or light lunch.
