Information for Visitors
Where do I find the Clubs Racing Rules?
An updated set of SSC Sailing Instructions is available - along with revised versions of Open Meeting Sailing Instructions, SSC Codes of Practice and Race Management Rules for Race Officers.
SSC is tidal. When can we sail at Stone?
Stone is a great place to sail at any stage of the tide. Even on the lowest low tide there is still plenty of water for launching and good racing. Mind you it is quite useful to know where the sandbanks are!
Are there any caravan or tent sites locally?
Yes, there are a number of local caravan sites who may allow short-term parking / tent erection. Additionally, some tent erection space is available at SSC for visiting yachts-persons and their families. A list of available local accommodation is at the bottom of this page.
What local facilities /tourist info is available?
St. Peter's Chapel: St Peter's chapel at Bradwell is a rare surviving Saxon church set on the marshes overlooking the North Sea.
Local Information: The Maldon District Council website has a wealth of information about the area around St Lawrence and has a downloadable accommodation guide covering the whole district.
