More on Southwick Parking Restrictions from the Secretary

From 1 July 2019

About a month ago, wooden posts appeared along Riverside Road adjacent to our moorings. Upon enquiring of the Port why they were there, we were advised that the Port had contracted with a car parking enforcement company, GXS, to patrol, monitor and enforce car parking in all areas of Port controlled roads and car parks including Riverside Road and Lady Bee Marina car park.

Car parking enforcement would commence in these areas with effect from 31st July and permits were made available to SYC for distribution to berth holders and visitors to the boats, moorings, stores and clubhouse.

Membership Card & Fob Usage in the Bar

1 August 2019

At the Board meeting in June it was decided that after a year of planning it is now time for the Bar and Restaurant to fully utilise the electronic till system in order that members receive the discounted prices to which you are entitled; this will come into effect Thursday 1August 2019.

You will need to have either a fob or new chipped membership card that can be scanned. If you do not have either a fob or new chipped membership card please contact the office who will be happy to help.  These cannot be sent out in the post and therefore require that you either collect it from the office or from behind the bar with prior arrangement.

Launch marks the start of our building work

On Monday 13 May we began work on our new clubhouse and amenities with a helping hand from the Leader of Adur District Council.

Our new HQ will mean that Shoreham will become the home of one of the UK’s best disabled sailing facilities, whilst enabling the building of flood defences to protect the town.

Conservation work ahead of our big build

We have been carefully undertaking some essential saltmarsh conservation before work begins on our new clubhouse, and have transplanted a section of the plants by hand to an area safely away from any risk of damage during the construction process.

Contractor announced for our rebuild

We are pleased to announce that W Stirland, based in Chichester, has been engaged as the contractor to undertake the construction of our new £4.2 million clubhouse and facilities.

Work has begun on site and will be completed by June 2020.  Our existing clubhouse, which has been our home since 1950, will then be demolished to enable the building of planned flood defences by Adur and Worthing District Council.

Take the family out on the water says David, 84

An inspirational eighty-four year old sailor is encouraging Sussex families to get out on the water together.

David Skinner has been an active member of Sussex Yacht Club since 1971 and was the club’s Commodore in 1994.  For the last 40 years he’s been sharing his passion for sailing with those who are new to the sport by taking them out on his own boat to show them the ropes.

Rule 37 Update

Changes to the rule governing the allocation of Southwick moorings

The land on which our Southwick west pontoon is built is leased from the port and this lease expires in 2019. In addition, the physical structure of the jetty is now at the end of its design life. Rebuilding this jetty in the same location is not an option as it’s location conflicts with the ports own development plans for the Lady Bee marina. Accordingly a new layout for our Southwick moorings has been designed. Various configurations are under consideration but none provide the same number of berths at Southwick that we currently enjoy.
