We present the first angular clustering measurement of ultraviolet-selected galaxies at low redshift () using data from the FOCA survey. We measure the galaxy autocorrelation function from three separate fields with (AB). Assuming , we obtain and , as a best fit to the data, which yields a correlation length Mpc. This estimate is formally lower than those obtained from optically selected galaxy samples, although the difference is within errors.
