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.

Forthcoming Events

Friday 30 November - Boats out of Compound

Membership Secretary

If you have not paid for all-year parking, then your boat should have been removed from the compound by Friday 30th November. If you want to avoid being sent an invoice for over-winter parking, you should contact Dave, the , as soon as possible.

If you would prefer to leave your boat at the club and avoid tripping over it in your drive all winter, Dave will happily assist with the necessary 'paperwork' to transfer you to all-year parking.

Tuesday 18 December - Christmas Draw

It's the final Tuesday before Christmas - get into the Christmas spirit by coming down to the clubhouse to see if you have won a prize in the grand Christmas Draw.  There'll be mulled wine and a mince pie to help you enjoy the evening which is for Members only.
You can purchase (more) Draw tickets on the night; each entry (square) costs a mere 50 pence. Remember, you have to be in it to win it! All profits go toward Club funds.
RNLI
At our AGM meeting on 6th November, representatives of the RNLI sold £160 worth of Christmas cards, 2019 calendars and diaries and other seasonal gifts - a very good result for the RNLI and wonderful generosity on the part of our members. If you missed the chance to buy your Christmas cards, etc, please note that they will be on sale again at the Christmas Draw.

Friday 28 December - Coffee Morning


Why not take a break from ripping down the Christmas decorations and pop down to the Club for a freshly brewed filter coffee with cream or milk accompanied by a choice of biscuits (some gluten-free).
As always, it starts at 11:00 and costs a mere 50p. As it's the school holiday, students and teachers will be able to attend.



Monday 31 December - New Year's Eve Party

After an eight year interval the Seafarers are having a party to welcome in the New Year. Join us for a fun family evening with some fantastic games - with prizes. What better way to see in 2019 than in the company of good friends.
American supper - everyone brings a small plate of food. A list of suggested food will be circulated once the final numbers are in. The evening will start at 8:00pm. £3 per adult, £1 per cadet. Book via WebCollect - closing date is Friday 21st December.

Club Charity for 2019

Wetwheels
At the AGM the Commodore invited members to attend a presentation from Geoff Holt MBE about the charity Wetwheels with a view to adopting it as the Club’s charity. After the presentation which was on 20th November, there was strong agreement that it had been an inspiring evening and that the Club should indeed select Wetwheels as its primary charity for 2019.
There are already several innovative ideas on how we can build a really positive rapport with the organisation as well as raising some money for them; more ideas are welcome! Further details will follow. Meanwhile, thank you for your support.
If you would like to know more about Wetwheels, go to the Club Charity Page.
