TIPS on finding treasure and spotting wildlife are among the articles on offer in the latest Chichester Harbour News and Guide.

This year’s edition of the annual magazine produced by the Chichester Harbour Conservancy is now available free from local tourist offices, the Harbour Office and other local outlets.

And sometimes the wildlife can be a little more unusual: this deer was seen swimming across the harbour by sailors gathering for racing off Dell Quay Sailing Club.

Four people who work within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty all tell their story in the new guide.

Local bed and breakfast owner Sue Muffett explains how she loves to share her passion for the harbour with guests, while farmer Simon Sprackling talks about the challenges of farming in an environmentally-sensitive area.

The new director of the Conservancy, Siun Cranny, is interviewed and outlines her aims to encourage younger people to get more involved, and keen racing sailor Roger Palmer shares his tips on using the wind and tide to advantage when racing near East Head.

A new feature for 2012 is a directory section with information for visitors including tide tables and local contacts.
