We present the first angular clustering measurement of ultraviolet-selected galaxies at low redshift (z ≈ 0.1) using data from the FOCA survey. We measure the galaxy autocorrelation function ω(θ) from three separate fields with m UV < 20.25 (AB). Assuming ω(θ) = A ω θ −δ , we obtain A ω = 2.9 +1.9 −1.2 × 10 −2 and δ = 0.53 +0.23 −0.26 , as a best fit to the data, which yields a correlation length r 0 = 3.2 +0.8 −2.3 h −1 Mpc. This estimate is formally lower than those obtained from optically
