Sailing club – moorings and memberships

Sussex Yacht Club is one of the oldest in the UK, founded in 1892 in the English town of Shoreham-by-Sea. It is a popular local club with around 1,800 members and enviable facilities on the River Adur and at Shoreham Port. The SYC bar is famous for hospitality on both sides of the Channel, and the new restaurant boasts the best river views in Shoreham.

Sussex Yacht Club uses Harbour Assist for all invoicing, membership services, managing mooring allocation, member communications and internal tasking. More different activities than many marinas!


The flexibility designed-into Harbour Assist means that the system is easily adapted to manage activities such as membership, events and rentals.

The SYC admin team like having all the information in one place: We have all of the membership detail alongside members’ boat and mooring information and it’s all easy to read at-a-glance, explained administrator, Paula Fox. The outside crew are starting to use the system for maintenance scheduling and shoreside boat movements, and there’s potential to manage RYA training courses on the new Booking Request feature. 

SYC also rate the ability to upload and track documents and appreciate the amount of detail covered by the standard reporting suite.
