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.
QHM has issued a Local Notice covering Recreational Boating During Coronavirus - https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/qhm/portsmouth/local-... And Wightlink has a much reduced timetable from Portsmouth but will completely cancel the Lymington crossing! https://www.wightlink.co.uk/information/coronavirus/ And there are some racing marks laid and ready for us (see picture - copyright Geoff Dixon!) - let's hope the weather is still like this when we're all released but, More »

It is, of course, all very quiet on the local sailing scene - sadly the only news is of disruption to the sailing and social programme... :( We have cancelled the Spring Spithead Series and postponed the Portsmouth Regatta; we hope that we may re-schedule the Regatta in early September. With sailing and even working on boats probably not deemed to be 'essential reasons' to leave home find attached links to More »

I'm sure it will come as no surprise but regrettably the Club have decided that we must Cancel our Spring Spithead Series due to the rapidly developing COVID 19 crisis. We are looking forward to seeing you all back for a fantastic Autumn Series starting on 19 September; in the meantime let's hope we have a great summer on the water! More »

'Following on from my message to you on Monday and in light of further developments regarding Covid-19 your Committee have decided to close the Club from Thursday 19 Mar until further notice. It is felt that this is in your best interests and that of the community at large in the current climate. It will also save money as people are not using the Club for obvious reasons. More »

Regrettably we have decided to postpone the first of the Spring Spithead Series races, due to be held on Saturday 21 Mar. This is in order to comply with government advice to avoid non-essential travel and social contact. We shall continue to monitor the situation and hope to provide a decision with respect to the whole series within the next few days. More »

Once again we have abandoned racing - Southerly winds of 22kts gusting to 30 kts :( and, perhaps not surprisingly, limited interest from competitors! Oh - how we are looking forward to those warm breezes of the summer... More »
