Clubhouse Facilities

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. The clubhouse is open to members 24 hours a day with access controlled by an electronic fob programmed to each individual member's needs. The door is electrically operated and will stop if any obstruction is present.

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.
