Bognor Regis

Another West Sussex seaside town just along the coast which I haven't visited for over 30 years. Home to the famous "Butlin's Bognor Regis" holiday camp right in the centre of town, my recollection was of neat retirement bungalows, a prim and tidy seaside suburbia.

On a clear and sunny Saturday in January we walked along the almost deserted promenade and along the shingle beach. Neat and tidy it all was, but none the worse for that. We found a cafe for breakfast, enjoyed the views and the ambiance.

To the west of the promenade we found the Bognor Regis Yacht Club, delightfully situated with commanding views. During the 1950's the club was a popular location for the Merlin Rocket, today beach catamarans make up a substantial part of the fleet, ideal boats for launching and recovery off the steep shingle beach.
