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.
