Dinghies

Active dinghy racing fleets

Shoreham SC is an active dinghy racing club with racing being run most weekends from March through to November. Racing generally takes place on the sea to the east or west of Shorham harbour entrance, and occasionally in the harbour itself should conditions permit.

A popular Wednesday evening series runs throughout the summer, starting in April, with one start on the club line for all boats.
