Function room hire at SYC

Sussex Yacht Club is proud to offer two fully equipped clubhouses which make the perfect venues available to hire for weddings, private parties, or meetings. If you were interested in hiring any of our spaces, please check availability with our steward.

Shoreham Clubhouse

With its central, beautiful, riverside location in Shoreham, close to public transport, the Shoreham Clubhouse is the most sought-after venue for any event. We opened the doors to our new clubhouse in 2021 where we have a variety of rooms available to hire for any occasion. The Shoreham Clubhouse has its own onsite car park, ramp, and lift for full disabled access to the building and its facilities.

You can take full advantage of our talented in-house chefs to create an incredible showstopper buffet or delectable sit-down dining experience to give your guests something to talk about!

When hiring a room at the Shoreham Clubhouse, included in your room hire are tables and chairs along with facilities dedicated to each room:

Stow’s Restaurant (function room)

Our spacious and stunning function room, Stow’s, can be transformed for any event, whether you are having an extravagant wedding reception, special birthday celebration or business meeting, Stow’s can accommodate you.

Stow’s is located on the first floor of our clubhouse and boasts the best scenic views in Shoreham. Directly overlooking the river Adur, Stow’s has access to the large balcony area, perfect for you and your guests to catch the bright afternoon sun or fresh evening air. Stow’s also benefits from its own private bar area dedicated to your event.

Our versatile space has a capacity of up to 180 guests (standing) or 100 guests (seated) and can be adapted for any occasion. So, if you wanted to dance the night away with a DJ or band or even set up for a seminar utilising our High Definition screen, Stow’s is the ultimate venue.

Conference Room

Our more formal conference room is the perfect space for meetings, networking, and corporate training. With its fully interactive screen, conferencing facilities, surround sound speaker system and whiteboards, our conference room is the ideal space for your upcoming presentation or lecture. We can also organise food and catering to be brought to your meeting or even set up your own tea and coffee station for you and your attendees.

Our conference room is located on the ground floor of the clubhouse with windows overlooking the river Adur and has a capacity of up to 59 people (theatre-style).

Doug Bishop Training Room

The Doug Bishop Training Room, kindly sponsored by longstanding members, the Bishop Family, is a fantastic space for smaller gatherings, meetings, and training courses. Perfectly located on the ground floor with its own dedicated side entrance leading to a ramp, makes this the ideal venue for accessibility.

The Doug Bishop Room has the advantage of a hard floor and direct access to changing facilities, great for getting in from the cold in your wet gear!

This room is also equipped with a large monitor and surround sound speaker system, great for presentations, and has a capacity for up to 29 people (theatre-style). A flipchart and paper can be provided upon request.

Admiral’s Boardroom

Our traditionally decorated Admiral’s Boardroom has been generously sponsored by our Admiral, David Skinner, and his family. This is a smaller, sumptuous room, immersed in SYC history, suitable for more intimate dinner parties, small receptions, or corporate meetings.

Our Admiral’s Boardroom is full of character with antique furniture and décor and has a seated capacity for up to 14.

Southwick Clubhouse

Overlooking our newly upgraded berths in Southwick is our original clubhouse which is a multipurpose venue available to members to hire for private parties or functions.

Our impressive original clubhouse has a more traditional feel and atmosphere giving you the opportunity tailor the space to your requirements. When hiring the Southwick Clubhouse, you also have the flexibility to organise your own catering arrangements and refreshments, allowing you to customise your event.

Tables and chairs are available at the clubhouse for you to utilise.
