Club Supported Charity

Welcome to the Seafarers Sailing Club website.

Seafarers Sailing Club is a small, friendly club formed to encourage the sport of dinghy sailing by the provision 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.

Meet and celebrate with this year's Trainees at the presentation of their RYA Certificates. The bar will be open at 5pm and the presentations made from 6pm. All are welcome. Apperitivo Gratis (ok - free nibbles!) will be available. There is no need to book for this event, but registering your intention to attend on WebCollect would be useful to provide an indication of numbers for those nibbles!

Sunday 29 July – Commodore's Challenge - Book Now

Many of you will remember last year’s Commodore’s Challenge. This saw record numbers of us sail to Portsmouth and enjoy a barbecue lunch at Hornet Services Sailing Club (HSSC) which is located in Gosport near the Submarine Museum. Others were able to join us there and this made for a fun and inclusive event. The feedback was so positive that Phil Warwick, our Commodore, has decided to run it again; the date to put into your diary is Sunday 29th July.
We will use both patrol boats as support. The Club dinghies will be available for those who do not own, or have access to, a member's boat.
The beauty of the venue, apart from being a good sail, is that families who would rather arrive by road can still join us. Free car parking is available. As before we will need to commit to payment for lunch but, should the weather be too bad to sail, we can at least all turn up by land. In other words, the event will happen in some form whatever the weather.
The broad timings will be: 09:00 - meet at Club, 09:30 - briefing, 10:00 - depart, 11:00 - Gilkicker Point, 12:00 berth HSSC, 12:15-14:00 - BBQ with salad or a cold buffet inside if raining, 14:00-16:00 - passage back, 1630 - tea at Club, 18:00 - complete
Please book your lunch at WebCollect now and when you book, please contact to let him know if you are just attending for lunch or intend to sail. If sailing, Phil would like to know if you are volunteering to crew or if you intend using your own boat, would like to helm a Club boat and whether or not you already have crew.


Security - Last One Out
Please remember, if you are at the Club and the last person to leave you need to lock up. That is the case even if it is during the day and you are going out for a sail. Sometimes it is difficult to know if anyone else is around so, if you do decide to head out, please make a quick check and, if no-one is around, turn off the urn in the kitchen, check all interior lights are off (wet room lights are automatic), check boathouse and lounge closed and alarmed, close the clubhouse door (alarm sets automatically), turn off the water in the compound and lock the gates to the compound. If someone is there, make sure they intend to stay before you leave things unlocked.
