About Itchenor Sailing Club

The Street, Itchenor
West Sussex, PO20 7AG

Itchenor Sailing Club is a stunning waterside location. From your ceremony and drinks reception on the waterfront lawn, to the last dance of the evening, Itchenor delivers something special.

Located near the city of Chichester on the south coast, the venue offers unrivalled views across Chichester Harbour. The stunning scenery provides a magical backdrop for those all-important wedding photos.

Catering options are flexible with three course menus available for parties from 10 to 100 guests seated, with more guests joining you for dancing and partying into the night. Our experienced, cordon-bleu trained chef Annmarie carefully constructs delicious canapés and dishes, but she is also happy to prepare more relaxed, less formal - but equally delicious - alternatives.

We can arrange for you to arrive/depart by boat if you wish and we are now licensed for Civil Ceremonies, either in our spacious Members' Room or outside on our pretty waterfront Bandstand.

Available all year round, we tailor your reception to you. No two weddings are ever the same here at the Club, and we look forward to discovering and developing your dreams and ideas. Our professional, enthusiastic and welcoming team will work with you every step of the way to ensure that every detail, big and small, is taken care of.

When the party is over, we can offer overnight accommodation for up to 30 of your guests, as well as adding a delicious, traditional English breakfast the following morning.

An idyllic winter wedding venue with stunning views and a roaring log fire, with November-February price reductions on available dates.

Venue Service

By Beverley and Mike, on 18 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 17 Feb 2020

A 'mature' couple who had a wonderful wedding and celebration. The service from the staff couldn't have been better. So helpful and reassuring. Family and friends being able to stay overnight was wonderful. Highly recommended and grateful thanks to all involved.

The perfect venue for a relaxed waterside wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah Wilcox, on 15 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Nov 2019

Itchenor Sailing Club was absolutely the perfect venue for us! When we arrived to meet Amanda and saw the views out across the jetties, then explored the club, with its cosy bar, light airy dining room and ceremony room looking towards the water, we knew it was the one. Having affordable accommodation upstairs is a huge bonus - rooms are clean, modern and the breakfast is good too. It's so nice to keep everyone around a little longer. Organising our day with Amanda was easy, she had the answers to all our (often random) questions in lightning-quick time. Nick and Clare run an absolutely excellent catering and bar service. We knew we wanted a roast and it was truly fantastic - elevated with sides of cauliflower cheese and vegetables and delicious giant Yorkies! They were so friendly, calm and relaxed and this really helped us to feel like everything was in hand, especially the day before. The best thing about Itchenor is it feels like a home from home run by a friendly family. Our guests could enjoy the day how they wanted - whether that was dancing in the bar, sitting by the fireplace in comfy armchairs, propping up the old bar as they do on their normal Saturdays, or staying in the dining room with the cheese course and a bit of quiet - and the staff were friendly and relaxed. Thanks especially to Nick for stepping in to help us with our sparklers outside at the last minute, and to Clare and the bar girls for providing much-needed umbrella cover from the main building to ceremony room! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location and this team. All our guests agreed, they'd never been to a wedding like ours and loved the venue.

The perfect venue for a waterfront wedding
Venue Service

By Kelly Pickard, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2019

Our wedding at Itchenor Sailing Club on August 2019 was absolutely perfect. We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it, and on the day it provided the perfect setting for our relaxed and fun wedding. The weather meant we could use the outside space exactly how we wanted, with an arrival by boat, outdoor ceremony in the bandstand followed by a fun and relaxed drinks reception with games outside and boat trips for the guests to enjoy. The Jubilee room was the perfect setting for out 32 person wedding breakfast. We didn't feel far from the waterside with the panoramic views straight out onto the harbour. The food was perfect and we cannot praise the staff working on the day highly enough - Claire and the team made sure everyone was thoroughly looked after. The sailing club was the perfect size for our 100 guest wedding reception. We danced the night away on the dancefloor, and the fun and games continued outside on the waterfront as the sun set. The bar staff were great fun and kept the drinks flowing all night. Lots of our guests commented how wonderful the service from the staff was. We provided accomodation for all of our daytime guests at the venue itself, which meant we could enjoy a post-wedding debrief and breakfast in the sunshine the morning after the wedding. I would highly recommend using the bedrooms at the venue for guests wanting to stay over. A big thank you to Nick and Amanda for going the extra mile to make sure everything was exactly as we wanted; from the ceremony right through to last orders. We cannot praise Itchenor Sailing Club enough!

Fantastic, Brilliant staff
Venue Service

By Sue, on 30 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2019

Itchenor sailing club is a fantastic venue for any event. Our wedding was only 47 guests but worked so well with the venue, we were lucky the weather was good to us as we wanted to get married outside. Nick, Dan and Clare were very helpful in the lead up to the wedding and also flexible to our wishes. The event ran smoothly on the day and Clare, Damien and their teams were brilliant serving great food and looking after our guests all day. All ran to time, and the rooms were very clean and ready even for early guests arrival. Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed their day. Thank you too to Amanda for helping with the service. We just need another excuse to use the venue again. There's not better venue than Itchenor sailing club. Sue & Nigel

Fantastic day!
Venue Service

By Joanna, on 28 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Feb 2019

We fell in love with the club straight away. The place is beautiful, tucked away in the village and offers stunning views over the harbour. Amanda and nick were both amazing helping us plan from start to finish. They understood exactly what we wanted and helped guide us through every step. The day went so smoothly and was so incredibly well organised by the club. Everyone of our guests commented how amazing the food was. Claire and the team made sure everyone was looked after. We can’t thank all the team enough for just the most incredible day. The feedback from our guests has been how outstanding the venue is.

Perfect Venue for a Perfect day
Venue Service

By fran love, on 02 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2018

Our Daughters wedding was held at the sailing club and we could not have hoped for a better venue and service from the team there. The wedding was held in the bandstand as we were lucky with the weather, it was such a romantic setting , very intimate and we cannot thank Amanda and Nick enough for the organsiation and hard work that went into everything running so smoothly , just how the bride and groom had imagined . We had a 55 people attend and they have all since commented on the fabulous venue , the views out across the water and relaxed setting , the food was excellent , prepared by Anne Marie and served by a lovely team of staff who helped do all they could to make the day special. Many of us stayed the night in the rooms above which were just as lovely as everything else and we sat by the water in the morning having a much needed coffee. We would also like to thank Clare and the rest of the staff who were so polite and helpful we could have asked for nothing more, it was simply amazing. Thankyou for such a special day

Stunning intimate waterside location
Venue Service

By Deborah and Les, on 30 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018

The staff here are really helpful, and will go the extra mile to ensure you get the day you have dreamed of. We had a terrific day, with an intimate luncheon party for 15 guests, followed by a late afternoon to evening party for another 45 guests. Nick was really helpful in helping us choose the food and wines, and AnneMarie's food was absolutely delicious, receiving many compliments. The whole day was truly memorable, and the beautiful backdrop of the water helps to create some amazing photos. As we met each other sailing, it was the perfect venue for us. Thank you for helping us make some special memories!

Venue Service

By Paul & Nicola Gambriel, on 01 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2017

Having attended many weddings over the 18 years we’ve been together, we really wanted to find a venue that was a little different, not too large and preferably by the coast. ISC ticked all of those boxes and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. Amanda and Nick were so efficient and approachable before and during our big day, and it went so perfectly. Even the sun shone all day for our late October wedding! The food and wine are outstanding and the service is top notch. We had 60 guests and we felt the Club suited that number perfectly. All of our guests have made such enthusiastic comments about the day and have said it was the best ever wedding. The accommodation was also a good standard and excellent value for money. The photographs we’ve seen so far are amazing as the scenery is just so beautiful. I cannot emphasise enough what a special place this is. We really couldn’t find fault in anything!

Such a happy occasion!

By Nina and Philip, on 15 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Feb 2017

I don’t know where to start with all my “thank yous”. I am so, so glad that we found you and the Sailing Club, everyone is saying that it is the best wedding they have been to, so well-organised, such a great venue, and such a happy occasion.

The best day of our lives!

We had the MOST amazing day at your beautiful venue. Everything was perfect, the food, the service and the STUNNING view the following morning from our lovely room. Many thanks for everything and for helping make our day, the best day of our lives.

It was a wonderful, perfect and magical day.
Venue Service

By Sally Jarvis, on 11 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Dec 2016

A massive thank you to all at Itchenor Sailing Club for everything you did for our wedding. It was a wonderful, perfect and magical day. Everything that we wanted and wished for and more. Everyone at ISC couldn't have been more helpful. Everything ran like clockwork but in a really relaxed way. That doesn't happen without a lot of really hard work behind the scenes and great team work. The feedback from all our guests was fantastic, they all enjoyed themselves greatly with many compliments with regard to the venue and its wonderful setting, the food and the brilliant staff. All in all we really couldn't have asked for more in that oh so perfect and beautiful venue. As far as we are concerned you have it just right so don't change a thing.

I just want to say that the wedding was amazing and you guys were so fantastic on the day and in the lead up we can't thank you enough!! I just keep looking back at all the aspects of the day - the boat arrival, the speeches, the bands and the food - and smiling because it really was all perfect :)
