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.

Christmas Draw

Christmas Draw 2015

The Grand Christmas Draw will take place on Tuesday 18th December.
The Draw board is available behind the bar; each entry (square) costs a mere 50 pence.
Remember, you have to be in it to win it!





Public Slipway - Use with Care
All users, both members of the Club and members of the public, are reminded that, as we move into the autumn and winter, extra care should be taken when using the public slipway. The shingle can hide obstructions, the wood can become slippery and there is evidence of general degradation. The Club has reported this to Fareham Borough Council who have promised to investigate.
