The clubhouse

Worthing Sailing Club has a well appointed clubhouse with spacious changing rooms and hot showers on the ground floor including baby-changing facilities in the ladies. The club office and a wet bar/galley are also situated at ground level with the bar opening onto a spacious patio overlooking the beach. Upstairs are the main bar and galley which have large picture windows opening onto a balcony to allow non-sailors to watch the action at sea. The balcony is a popular location in the summer for a drink, a chat and friendly discussions about tactics (much more fun than a protest flag).

The race office is situated above the bar and galley with a panoramic view of the beach and water which enables the race team to manage the race (they will spot you cheating) and oversee the safety of those on the water. The race office also houses the VHF radio base and flags which communicate with the safety craft and sailing boats on the water. There is an anemometer above the roof (10m above sea level) which is connected to a display in the galley so that the windsurfers can argue about how inaccurate it is.

Underneath the clubhouse are the storage facilities for the club's rescue boats, marker buoys etc.which are kept in a state of readiness for any emergency whilst the club is occupied.

The clubhouse is open every Sunday from March through December and on Wednesday evenings during the summer months when sailing activities are scheduled. Members can access the ground floor facilities during the day all year round by requesting an access key.
