Club Supported Charity

The 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.

Friday 29 September - Macmillan Coffee Morning

Macmillan Coffee

The coffee morning this month - in the clubhouse from 11am on Friday 29th - will be part of Macmillan Cancer's worldwide annual event.
In addition to the usual (exceptional quality) filter coffee, there will be some very tasty cakes available for members and their guests (including a gluten free cake). All of this will be totally free but there will be a collection box. Last year, helped by gift-aiding, we raised approximately £170 for MacMillan Cancer. With your help, this year we'll do better.

Saturday 14 October - RNLI Fish Supper and Ukulele Band


The RNLI Fish Supper is an annual fundraising event to support our volunteer lifeboat crews across the UK and Ireland. For more detail go to RNLI Fish Supper 2017. Nationwide, this year's event is to take place between 13th and 15th September. Seafarers SC will hold its first RNLI Fish Supper on Saturday 14th October.

To liven up our special fund-raising event we will have entertainment provided by the Surrey Hills Ukulele Big Band. The band performs around Surrey, Hants and Sussex. The emphasis is on the ukulele but the band also features mandolin, fiddle, bass guitar, harmonica and a wide range of percussion. With music drawn from a multitude of sources and countries, the audience is taken on world tour without having to move - well maybe a bit of finger or foot tapping!
Evening begins at 7:00pm with fish supper at approximately 8:15pm. Any profit will be donated to the RNLI. There may also be a raffle.
Supper will comprise battered cod (or a vegetarian option) with chips and a delicious dessert. Members and their guests welcome. £12 per adult, £10 per cadet - book via WebCollect . Closing date is Tuesday 10th October.


Slipway - Beware of Prominent Bolt Heads

Please be wary of the deformed bolt heads protruding above the surface of the lower end of the slipway.
The bolt heads are beneath the surface at high water. They constitute a trip hazard and could damage your footwear or your feet.

Auditor Required
The Committee are seeking a volunteer to audit the Club's accounts from next season for a period of up to three years. If you would like to know more, please contact Claudia, our .

Committee - Vacancies
The AGM is less than 2 months away. As is the norm, all the Committee Members and Members with Special Responsibility are up for re-election. For a reminder of who's who, go to Committee.
After much sterling work over a number of years, Justin and Chad have decided to step down from their roles. As a result we are looking for volunteers to fill the posts of Vice Commodore and Cruising Secretary. The terms of reference for these positions are published in the SOP - available to all members from the WebCollect Club Documents event.
This is your chance to help with the running of your club and to inject some of your own ideas and enthusiasm. If you would like to stand or want to know more, please contact Mike Couzens, our .
