Welcome to Our Sailing Club
Portsmouth Sailing Club’s headquarters and club house is located on the waterfront in the heart of historic Old Portsmouth.
The club house has a fully stocked bar, function room, kitchen and changing rooms.
Club members have access to 60m of pontoon and slipway at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour just inside the historic Town Camber in Old Portsmouth. In 2018 a crane was installed that allows the launching of keelboats, RIBs and tenders – https://www.portsmouthsc.co.uk/article/73494
The club runs two boatyards, the Boom Yard and Wyllie’s Garden. The main boatyard is the Boom Yard which is also a great place for a Club BBQ during the summer months with fantastic views across the Eastern Solent.
The club has an active racing fleet of National Squibs and a very close affiliation with the Victory Class Association – more details here – Victory Class Sailing Club, Portsmouth, UK
The final races of the Spithead Series, planned for Sat 8 May, were abandoned due to excessive winds and sea state. (See Bramblemet wind readings showing winds consistently over 25 kts and gusts over 35 kts). The committee vessel, Mary Siobhan, headed out into the race area but it was clear that the conditions were untenable for either anchoring the committee vessel or safe yacht racing. A disappointing end to the series. More »

The second Saturday of our Spithead Series was a challenging one for competitors and the race management team! Many thanks to Mark Briggs and James Jopling for taking up the Race Officer duties and for achieving two races, despite the gentle breeze that died after race 1 and then, eventually, returned beyond expectations to allow a very quick second race around a short, light wind course! Provisional results are here - https://www.portsmouthsc.co.uk/spring-spithead-series-2021/spring-spithead-results More »

We hope everybody enjoyed their first race of the year today despite the chilly temperatures and lack of the usual yellow racing marks. There was some great close racing, especially in the second race with three yachts finishing within twenty seconds of each other. Big thanks to Tim Johnson for acting as Race Officer and the rest of the race team onboard Mary Siobhan and of course to Phil and Chris who were laying More »
