Proud to be one of the oldest sailing clubs in the country

With the brand new main clubhouse, extensive boatyard with modern lift and moorings on the river adur, along with the original clubhouse and locked moorings within Shoreham Port, SYC is first and foremost a members club with unrivalled facilities. Yachts of all sizes call the club home, with both rallying and racing strongly supported, as is the dinghy section where particular attention is given to encouraging youth sailors. The club has a diving section and is home to Sussex Sailability, supporting handicapped sailors of all abilities. SYC also boasts a bar with members lounge and Stows' Restaurant looked after by our Steward and her friendly team enjoying possibly the best river views in town.

Balcony life at SYC

Dogs and the Clubhouse

Due to the number of concerns being raised, it was decided at January’s Main Committee Meeting, to take steps for dogs to only be permitted on the balcony.

The only exception is to allow walking through the bar to reach the balcony and ordering at the bar (the two-legged Member, not the four).


Coronavirus Update #16

Fri 10 December 2021

Dear Members,

It is with sorrow that I once again have to write and advise of the club reaction to yesterday’s announcement by HM Government increasing measures to prevent the spread of Covid 19.

Throughout Thursday I have consulted with my fellow Flag Officers, the Club Medical Advisor and the Club Management Team to agree a measured approach that we hope is acceptable to Members; please bear in mind our overriding priority must be to minimise as best we can the risk of spreading infection at Sussex Yacht Club and to make those members who have concerns, feel safe and welcome in their clubhouse.
