About the club

The club offers sailing and racing opportunities for all, from complete beginners trying a day sail in the Solent, to experienced sailors looking for competitive yacht racing. Throughout the season we enter a variety of racing events:

  • Inshore races in the Solent such as the Sunsail race series;
  • Offshore RORC and JOG races to France and the Channel Islands;
  • Campaigns such as the Fastnet.

The emphasis is on having fun, with a friendly atmosphere, but there is also the opportunity to learn the ropes and progress to skippering in time. There is no minimum level of experience to sail with the club. For details of membership and eligibility click on the Membership menu item at the top of the page or download a crew bureau form here.

JOG Solent Race (Cowes-Lymington) 1st and 2nd Oct We had a cracking weekend in what was to turn out to be the last race of the season. We saw torrential rain, drifting calms and a long beat in F7 winds. Our charter, Jazzy Jellyfish, a J/109 proved ideal and we kept ourselves off the bottom of the results board in a fleet of very experienced crews. 10th out of 12 starters in IRC4.
