Sailing / Yacht Club
Sussex Yacht Club was established in 1892 in premises at Southwick, by a group of yachting enthusiasts in order to further the sport of yachting and cruising. It is one of the oldest sailing clubs in the UK. The Club was originally named “The Mosquitos” after a famous boat of the time. With the main clubhouse, extensive boatyard with new 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 thriving diving section and is home to Sussex Sailability, supporting handicapped sailors of all abilities. SYC also boasts a bar and steward famous for hospitality on both sides of the channel, along with a recently relaunched restaurant enjoying the best river views in Shoreham.
