Visitors

Everything that makes our club run smoothly

Visitors are welcome at Shoreham SC whether for open meetings or to join in club sailing. If using the clubs facilities outside of an open event visitors are requested to pay £10 on each visit – a bargain for use of such excellent facilities and easy access to some of the best sailing water in the UK. Temporary sailing guests must be virtually signed in by a Shoreham SC members by emailing visitor contact details to visitors@shorehamsailing.org 24 hours ahead of your visit. Only one visiting boat is allowed per Shoreham SC member.

The Club tries not to over do the rules and regulations as our sport is primarily about having fun. However, being situated within a commercial port makes it imperative, on safety grounds, that a few simple regulations are adhered to and there are a few other ‘done things’ that ensure everybody can have a fine sail without any hassle.

On the water

  • Racing: We are lucky to enjoy some of the best sailing water on the south coast and to make it possible;
    • Please make yourself familiar with the club’s sailing instructions.
    • All those intending to race need to sign-on in the clubhouse (Under 18s need to be signed in by a parent or guardian)
    • If you intend to race, or have raced, your help is required to ensure that the safety boats are launched and recovered.
  • Recreational sailing: If you plan to sail on your own without safety cover it is your responsibility to ensure that someone knows that you are going out, and that you are back safely.
  • Harbour regulations: Please familiarise yourself with the Harbour regulations.
  • Bouyancy aids: Buoyancy aids must be worn on the water at all times.

On shore

  • Boat park: All boats are parked at the owners risk.
  • Car parking: Please do not park your car inside the club grounds.
  • Slipway: Everyone needs to use the slipway so please try to keep it clear for launching and recovery;
    • No vehicles on the slipway
    • There is a winch at the top of the slipway, the code for which is available on request.
  • Food and drink; Thanks to the hard work of club members we have a great Galley and Bar;
    • Galley: The Galley is open on Sundays serving breakfast and delicious baguettes, drinks and snacks. To be sure to get what you want we recomend odering your lunch before you go afloat.
    • Bar: John and Caz keep our bar well stocked and if they’re not there a committee member will be happy to open it for you. It is run on an ‘Honesty’ basis. Please do not wear wet gear in the bar.
    • BBQs: We have a number of BBQs that can be used by club members, and are generally lit for everyone to enjoy a BYO meal after sailing on Wednesdays. If organising your own BBQ please bring your own charcoal.
  • Rubbish: All rubbish goes in the bins – the green lid bin is for general waste and the blue lid ones for recycling
  • Dogs: Dogs must be kept under control by their owners at all times.
