BRIGHTON MARINA YACHT CLUB
Brighton Marina Yacht Club is very much part of Brighton Marina, founded in 1978 at time when Brighton Marina first opened. Since that time BMYC has continued to evolve alongside development of the marina itself. The first club premises were floating – on the MV Medina, which was moored in the marina. BMYC relocated in September 2015 to a new home afloat in the heart of Brighton Marina, surrounded by members’ boats. It is their largest space yet, with excellent facilities for members to enjoy, for events and business collaborations; and of course they extend a warm welcome to the many visiting yachtsmen from around the UK and overseas who find a safe and friendly haven in Brighton Marina.
The Topsail Bar is well-stocked complementing the excellent galley; a light and airy lounge area and extensive waterside terrace combine to produce the newest and most attractive social and sporting facilities in the City of Brighton.
CHICHESTER YACHT CLUB
Chichester Yacht Club is a friendly family Club situated in a beautiful position on Chichester Harbour, with stunning views over the water, a bar and restaurant, and a full range of facilities for club and private functions.
The club is open year round, with a busy programme of sailing and social events, and owners of yachts, motor boats, dinghies and remote control model yachts are equally welcome. The club is within walking distance of two marinas, and members organise a lively series of sailing and social events.
The sheltered waters are ideal for training and coaching at all levels, and there is an active year-round dinghy racing and cruising programme. The location is also ideal for other waterborne activities, such as canoeing and paddle boarding.
ROYAL SOUTHAMPTON YACHT CLUB
Like all royal yacht clubs, the Royal Southampton takes pride in its history and values. But today’s RSYC is also one of the most dynamic and active. Extensive racing activities span everything from Sunday mornings ‘round the cans’ to jointly running the first few days of the Cowes Regatta.
The Club hosted superb J Class racing in the Solent - and also fielded a team of race officers for the sailing events of the 2012 Olympics. Additionally the Cruising group - comprising both sail and power- makes ambitious passages to far off destinations yet ensuring, that no charming rally venue or reciprocal yacht club in the Solent is left unexplored. Ever open to innovation, RSYC has instituted a Remote Controlled Yacht section which has a well supported regular programme of racing, plus year-round activities.
There's a lot more than sailing - it's a fun, friendly, highly social club, offering a great range of events. Who couldn’t enjoy a party in the glorious clubhouse overlooking Ocean Village Marina? Is there a more perfect spot for a lazy lunch on a sunny day, or for a twilight drink, than the stunning Gins Clubhouse, on the beautifully unspoilt Beaulieu River?
Many of our members do not own a boat. Some don’t even sail. Or motor. They are members because the club atmosphere is a lot of fun, with so much to offer - though it’s interesting how many find themselves drawn onto the water eventually...
