Arun Youth Aqua Centre Registered Charity Number 1001294

To the Arun Youth Aqua Centre, an entirely voluntarily run Youth Organization, operating from the Jubilee Compound behind the Littlehampton Swimming Centre.


The Arun Youth Aqua Centre is aimed at young people between the ages of 8-18 who want to get out on the water and learn to sail. All the equipment you need to get started is provided, just a change of clothes from you. You will get wet but it is fun and educational at the same time and you could be helming a dinghy within a few weeks of joining. If you are willing to learn whilst having fun expert help is always on hand so you could very soon be the next Ben Anslie or Ellen McArthur as we have a variety of boats that will take you from a novice, all the way through the RYA youth scheme stages 1-4 to your Dinghy Instructor’s if you wish. Sailing is not expensive at AYAC because we are reliant on our volunteers who willing give their time to run the Centre and so keep costs to a minimum. Parent/ Guardian helpers are actively encouraged to assist the team run the sessions, family days, BBQs and other social events. We are open from the first Sunday in May through to October and we sail on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. If you would like to join us or you would like further information contact or call 01903 714753
