Please note the below dates where these are relevant to your enjoyment of the club’s respective facilities:

Coronavirus Update #13

Dear Fellow Members,

With sadness I bring you details of how our Club will be operating during the four-week lockdown commencing on Thursday 5 November until Friday 4 December 2020.

Coronavirus Update #14

Published Monday 7 Jan 2021

Dear Fellow Members,

May I take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year. 

With the deepest regret, I am obliged to advise you of measures that I have asked be put in place by the weekend in order to protect Members, Visitors and Staff from the rampaging virus variant now sweeping across our county. 

The Last Chance Saloon

Sunday 1 to Wednesday 4 November 2020.

In the light of the Prime Ministers announcement yesterday evening, we are hoping you can find the time to come and help drink the old clubhouse bar dry before lockdown on Thursday.

With the enforced closure of bars and restaurants until December and the imminent move to the new building, it seems almost certain that these few days will be your last ever opportunity to enjoy our current clubhouse before the shutters are closed forever.

Steward Natalie and her team will be opening from 12:00 to 22:00 from Sunday 1 to Wednesday 4 November when the final last orders will be called, marking the end of an era.

Food will be available and there may also be spot-discounts on lines that need to be sold off.

Obviously, we will maintain social distancing and other covid measures to ensure your safety, and should you wish to book a table you can call the bar on 01273 453 717 or email the steward using steward@sussexyachtclub.org.uk

We do hope everybody can find the time to toast our old clubhouse with a warm farewell.

Dear Fellow Members,

It is with some sadness that I have to contact you with another one of these Coronavirus updates; I think we all hoped the country was moving slowly back to some form of normality and we were excitedly planning goodbye events for the old clubhouse, and welcome events for the new one, which we hope to move into during the autumn. 

May I ask that you read, digest and action where applicable the following guidance if you are using the clubhouse and bar/restaurant for the foreseeable future:
