Sussex Yacht Club is a RYA Recognised Teaching Centre and all the courses offered are internationally recognised, following guidelines set down by the national body for our sport.
Our facilities are ideally suited to teaching beginners of all ages to enjoy boating, with the benefit of our two clubhouses in Southwick, with its protected non-tidal waters, and Shoreham, which enables direct access to the river Adur and the sea. Both of our clubhouses have changing/shower facilities.
SYC is also an ideal location for shore-based theory courses and training for practical exams such as the immensely popular RYA First Aid at Sea and essential VHF Radio courses.
We also work in partnership with schools in the Solent to provide cost effective practical training and examinations in the spring, with excellent value courses designed to help members quickly and economically achieve success in Competent Crew, Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Preparation.
The Club has a variety of sailing craft ranging from Sonar keelboats to Oppies for our youngest members to use and we have a modern fleet of safety boats with trained crews on hand at every sailing session.
