The Arun Yacht Club is a friendly, family-focused community sailing club founded in 1956 and situated on the west bank of the River Arun in Littlehampton, West Sussex. The club is run by volunteer members. We like to think of ourselves as the premier club for yachting, dinghy sailing and learning to sail in Sussex. Come along and join in the fun.
Arun Yacht Club is a sea-sailing club with the fallback of river sailing if conditions at sea are unsuitable. There is a busy year-round programme of dinghy racing: sea sailing from Easter to Christmas, with river sailing from Christmas to Easter. Based inside Littlehampton harbour, launching from the secure dinghy compound is over a firm sandy beach into the river Arun, and from there it is a short sail through the harbour arms to the open sea.
Arun Yacht Club is just 10 minutes from the sea and 4 hours sailing time from the Solent. We are also an ideal starting point for cruises to the east or south, with many of our regular sailors making passages to Normandy, Brittany, and the Channel Islands. We have a clubhouse with a bar and restaurant and there are organised club races and cruises during the summer months. Explore our web site to find out more about our facilities.
The Arun Yacht Club has a great clubhouse overlooking the River Arun and Littlehampton from the west bank. With unrivalled views of Littlehampton Harbour it is a great place for our members to sit and watch the world go by whist enjoying great food from our chef and reasonably price drinks from the bar looked over by our Club Steward Tony Peterson. It is also a great place for holding your party or wedding reception. Please get in touch with our office if you would like more details.
