Eastbourne has hosted numerous national championships and open meetings over the years and has built up a wealth of experience in organising such events, which, in recent years, have included the RS800 and RS700 Nationals, Dart 16 Nationals, RS Volvo events, Laser World and European Qualifiers and Multihull Opens.
The club has experienced race officers and we are well known for our efficient and friendly shore-side administration too. We have our own committee boat and safety boats and are able to call on neighbouring clubs to provide safety support for larger events.
The sailing area in Eastbourne Bay is second to none, with fantastic wind and waves, set against the beautiful backdrop of Beachy Head and the South Downs. When we host multi-class events, we have the space and the ability to have two course areas, which makes for better racing for everyone.
Whilst we do have a shingle beach, launching and recovery is not usually difficult and club members are often on hand to assist when necessary. We even have motorised winches to help boats up the beach, making life a lot less strenuous after a long day at sea!
Being a holiday resort, Eastbourne has plenty of hotels and b&bs to accommodate visitors and there are plenty of activities and attractions for the non-sailing members of the family.
We are keen to welcome more classes to Eastbourne and so feel free to talk to us about what we have to offer.
