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 26 January - Coffee Morning


Have you seen the new patio? Look at the Gallery.
Better still, if you visit between 11am and midday on Friday 26th, you can admire the new patio and enjoy excellent company, as much freshly brewed filter coffee or tea as you can drink and as many biscuits (some gluten-free) as you can eat, all for a mere 50p.
