Set in a valley with a backdrop of beautiful wooded hills, Bough Beech Reservoir offers a scenic setting for a day on the water.  Sailors of all ages and abilities can enjoy a pleasant sail followed by refreshments in our clubhouse and a chance to swap stories and sailing tips with fellow enthusiasts.  The lawns in front of the clubhouse are a great place to picnic whilst watching the sailing on the reservoir.

Whilst most members have their own boats, a fleet of club boats is also available for members to hire.  Safety cover is provided at weekends by our volunteer safety squad.  Buddy sailing rules apply when there is no safety cover.

Members also get together to organise trips away to other sailing venues.   Traditionally these include Cobnor Week, which combines dinghy day sailing in Chichester harbour with summer camping.  In the past there has sometimes been an autumn weekend away cruising a coastal stretch of water – the Blackwater Estuary has been a popular choice.
