All club racing is in the open sea, off our sand and shingle beach. We get some of the best conditions on the South Coast with the prevailing winds being largely cross-shore. There is plenty of challenge and excitement for everyone, novice to expert. Come and see for yourself!
Racing takes place on Sundays from Easter to December and on Wednesday evenings between May and August. There are also regular training sessions on Saturdays with club training dinghies (RS Zest, Tera and Feva) available for use. Any dinghy with a PY rating may join the racing but, due to space restrictions, catamarans are excluded. The club has strong Topper, Laser, Radial, Laser2 and RS400 fleets. The RS 200, 500, 700, Aero & Tera, and Comet classes are also represented.
Sunday morning racing starts at 11:00, the afternoon start is at 13:30. Wednesday evening racing starts at 19:00. There are also annual open race meetings for the established classes and occasionally these are of area or national status.
The Social Committee organises barbeques and evening theme meals throughout the year, culminating in a dinner/dance and prize giving.
Lancing Sailing Club was founded in 1959 by a small group of enthusiasts who wanted to take advantage of the excellent sailing water along this stretch of the South East coastline. A suitable site was found at the end of Shopsdam Road, for which the local council charged the princely sum of £5 per annum. After building a small retaining wall, the founder members levelled the site and erected a small portable building. This was replaced in 1980, with a semi-permanent building which served the club well until 2001. The present clubhouse was built during the Spring of 2002, and with two floors, doubled our accommodation space. A grant from Sport England made the new clubhouse possible.
