Welcome to the Bexhill Sailing Club website
Bexhill Sailing Club has been established since 1947 but is very much a modern, inclusive and forward looking sailing club, located on the East Sussex Coast between Eastbourne and Hastings. A full programme of racing and other events begins in March and extends to November.
There are races every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) and also some Wednesday and Friday evenings, tide and light permitting. We have five fleets the Novice Fleet, Slow Conventional Fleet, Conventional Fleet, Asymmetric Fleet and Catamaran Fleet. Some series allow for class racing.
Bexhill is an RYA recognized training establishment and provides sailing and powerboat courses for both adults and cadets. We have 20 boats for training, including 6 Toppers, 6 Topazes, 6 Laser 2000’s, a RS Feva and a Dart 16. We are proud to be a Volvo Championship club, which was awarded in recognition of excellence in the provision of facilities and training for young people.
If you are passing pop in for a tour of the club.

All courses cover the subjects detailed in the RYA syllabus, start at 9.00am and involve practical boat handling skills at sea. I anticiapte that we will finish at approximately 17.00. Power boating is less strenuous than sailing and because you are travelling faster it is easy to get cold, therefore please make sure you have adequate and appropriate clothing to go afloat.
