Club Supported Charity

The Seafarers Sailing Club is a small, friendly club formed to encourage the sport of dinghy sailing by the provision of racing, cruising and training. The clubhouse is situated on the Solent between Hill Head and Lee-on-Solent overlooking the Isle of Wight. The Club has approximately 130 paying members. As the majority have "family" membership, the number of people entitled to use our facilities is over 200. There are over 100 boat spaces in the compound which is usually just sufficient to meet members' demands. See About SSC for more details.

Saturday 21 October - IS YOUR BOAT SECURE?
The latest forecast for Saturday includes winds up to 50kn (Force 10). If you have a boat in the compound, you might like to inspect it before the weekend. You should check that your boat is securely lashed down with rope of suitable strength and condition and, if possible, a weight at the bow. You should also ensure that your boat cover is in good condition and that it is secured properly.
The third party insurance that is compulsory for all boats in the compound should cover you in the event that your boat causes damage to Club property or another boat. However, to get compensation for damage to your own boat, you need to have comprehensive insurance and to make sure that you comply with any policy conditions.
