Sussex Shipmates

Back to SANO Home

Our Association used to be known as the ‘Sussex ex Chief and Petty Officers Association’ (Old and Bold).  With this change we have opened membership to all ranks and rates.  In normal times we meet at 2000 on the first Friday of every month at:

Sussex Yacht Club
Brighton Road
Shoreham by Sea
BN43 6RF

The meetings are generally social with opportunity for talks on matters of interest, quiz nights, etc.  Anybody can come along and meet old friends and make new ones.
