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
