The club was formed in 2011 by Len Garner and Chris King. Originally regular sailing took place at Lakeside Holiday Camp in Hayling Island, Hampshire.

In 2012 the club moved to our now home waters at Mill Rythe Holiday Village

Mill Rythe was originally a farmhouse, Hudson’s, with some land and modest surroundings. The building of the original Sunshine Holiday Camp started in 1938. After the outbreak of World War 2, it was taken over by the Royal Marines and was the location of the HMS Northney dockyard facility for landing craft repair and maintenance.

Our sailing water is the old boating lake on a quiet part of the camp near to Chichester Harbour.
