Local delights

Pagham YC is situated between Pagham Harbour (a smaller version of nearby Chichester Harbour) and the holiday town of Bognor Regis. The glorious South Downs dominate the inland scenery providing excellent walking and fine views. Points of interest include the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, Denham Gardens, and Kingley Vale Nature Reserve. Indeed the coastal area is a birdwatcher’s paradise with Pagham Harbour itself just a short walk along the beach and the Wildfowl Wetland Trust centre near Arundel. History buffs can enjoy Uppark House, Arundel Castle and the splendid Roman palace at Fishbourne. So it is a perfect spot to tarry and make a long weekend around the sailing.
