Club Supported Charity

The Seafarers Sailing Club is a small, friendly club formed to encourage the sport of dinghy sailing by the promotion of racing, cruising and training. The clubhouse is situated on the Solent between Hill Head and Lee-on-Solent overlooking the Isle of Wight. The Club has approximately 130 paying members. As the majority have "family" membership, the number of people entitled to use our facilities is over 200. There are over 100 boat spaces in the compound which is usually just sufficient to meet members' demands. See About SSC for more details.

Saturday 19 August – Under Half Ton Cup
The race for the Under Half Ton Cup is on Saturday 19th August. The nominal start time is 14:36. Over the past few seasons the number of participants has been disappointing (6 in 2014, 4 in 2015 and 4 in 2016) and, therefore, the probability of winning has been high. The Club has 60 members who will be under 50 years of age on 19th August. If you are one of these, why not enter this race?
There will, of course, also be a race for the over 50s. The Half Ton Cup Race starts at 14:30.

Monday 21 August – Access All Areas
Once again, Fareham Borough Council (FBC) is organising a summer holiday activity programme for 11-16 year olds titled “Access All Areas” (AAA). The full programme runs from 27th July to 31st August. Details of the AAA programme for 2017 can be found at FBC-AAA .
On Monday 21st August the AAA venue will be the Salterns. FBC will provide a range of activities in the field adjacent the compound from 1pm to 5pm. For the fifth successive year, Seafarers Sailing Club has offered to provide an introduction to sailing for those children who express an interest. You will recall that our purchase of three Hartley 12.2 dinghies was part-funded by an FBC grant. Our support for “Access All Areas” helped our grant application.
We need volunteers to assist with coordination, to act as beach crew, to crew a patrol boat and to helm dinghies (Club boats or your own) taking 2 or 3 teenagers for 40/45 minute sailing experience sessions. Tea or coffee and biscuits will be provided. Should strong winds mean that sailing has to be cancelled, we will set up a static display as we did last year.
If you can help, please contact Justin, our .

Friday 25 August - Coffee Morning

Friday 25 to Sunday 27 August – Overnight Cruise

Arrangements for this year's Overnight Cruise to Corf Camp on the Isle of Wight are in place. The Cruising Secretary, , will communicate directly with those who are going.
Useful information on Corf Camp and the approaches to Newtown Creek can be found in the website Cruising section.
