The large modern clubhouse is situated in a stunning location overlooking Lyme Bay on the Jurassic Coast (World Heritage Site). The main entrance is on the north side of the building, providing a welcoming and accessible entrance as you approach on foot or by car.
An automatic cardiac defibrillator is installed outside the Clubhouse main entrance.
Within the clubhouse there is a large function room, a kitchen, and a well stocked bar overlooking the sea. A major refurbishment to improve accessibility, upgrade the changing facilities, and provide a separate training/meeting room was undertaken over the 2019/2020 winter. This was supported by a Sport England grant. There are now six individual shower/changing cubicles in both male and female facilities. There is also a dedicated family/disabled shower/toilet facility.
Sea state, wind direction and forecasts are displayed on a screen in the entrance hall, together with another screen showing a Webcam view of the river entrance, which can help in assessing the position of the bar and the state of the channel.
Outside, there is a raised decking area to the east of the clubhouse and a paved seating area at the western end. These allow members to enjoy post race drinks or to simply enjoy the evening sunshine overlooking the bay.
After sailing, the clubhouse has a number of board games to keep younger cadets occupied whilst their parents are in the bar! The Club also now has a track for 'Boules on the Beach' and a mobile skittle alley.
