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
Big thanks to Derek Budden and the Tempest Fleet for running this week's Frostbite racing from Crazy Horse. Two good races for seven competitors - sadly no Squibs (Crane u/s) or Tempests as they were unable to launch due to Remembrance events at Hornet SC. Results are here Portsmouth Sailing Club : Frostbite 2021 Provisional Results (portsmouthsc.co.uk) And thanks Derek for the picture! More »
