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 –

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

Zoom Session Update - Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue (GAFIRS) & HMS MEDUSA

GAFIRS have agreed to provide a short introduction into their operations next Thursday 11 Mar at 19:30. Although we may consider GAFIRS to be 'around the corner' from us here in Portsmouth, they are probably the most likely lifeboat to be tasked to support Portsmouth SC members on our home waters and members may not be aware that a GAFIRS vessel is based in the harbour. It will also be interesting to understand More »
