We have a fleet of six Fireflies that we sail from Old Portsmouth for weekly team training and social sailing. Beginners can take advantage of free tuition from our experienced instructors. Simply pay the club membership fee for the year, and then safety boat fuel costs whenever you decide to go out on the water.
More experienced sailors can enjoy intermediate social sessions, take part in the annual frostbite series, try out for our dinghy team or take advantage of our discount at the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre.
Our dinghy team regularly attends events all over the country, including the BUSA Fleet racing nationals and the BUSA team racing qualifiers where we have often qualified for the national BUSA team racing finals.
If you’d rather sail something a bit bigger we charter Sunsail’s new F40 yachts and regularly sail all over the Solent. Every year we also go on our “Summer Sail Week” and sail chartered Sunsail yachts in the Mediterranean. It’s a great way to travel a bit with like minded people during the summer.
For Yacht Team racing we enter BUSA Yacht Nationals, which we host every year.
