Welcome to the Seafarers Sailing Club website.

The Seafarers Sailing Club is a small, friendly club formed to encourage the sport of dinghy sailing by the promotion 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.

Committee structure - Interim change
It has become necessary to appoint a temporary Bosun to the management committee.
Tim Wadham has volunteered for the task, however as Tim works he will not be able to perform all the Bosun tasks that we have become used to.
He will not be able to conduct his duties as Rear Commodore as well.
Kevin Forder has volunteered to join the Committee as a co-opted member to assist with the Rear Commodore duties.
This arrangement will be maintained until the election of officers at the next AGM.
This change has the full support of the current management committee.

Why not stay behind for a quick drink in the bar after sailing on Sunday morning.
The bar will be opened every Sunday during the sailing season by your friendly volunteer bar staff.

Sea Swimmers
As the Summer has arrived we can expect that more people will take to the sea and swim in the area of our sailing.
Whilst you are on the water can you please be considerate to swimmers.
There may be occasions that it is tactically sensible to sail near swimmers.
If this is the case and you are spoken to by a swimmer please re-assure them that you can see them and that you will manoeuvre to avoid them at a reasonable distance.
It can be disconcerting for a person at sea level looking up at an approaching craft, they may not be able to see your face to understand you can see them.
With this approach we can promote everyone enjoying our area of the Solent

Day of Sailing with Local Children - Tuesday 5 August 11:00am
Fareham Borough Council (FBC) has asked Seafarers to assist with its summer holiday youth entertainment programme again this year.
A very successful inaugural event was held last year. Supported by many of you, and a local councillor, we spent a day taking 40 local children for an introductory sail.
The complete list of events and venues for this year has been published in the recent `Fareham Today` newsletter which Fareham residents have received.
On Tuesday 5th August the venue is the Salterns with activities underway from about 11:00 until 15:00.
In addition to the sailing organised by Seafarers, FBC will provide a range of activities in the field adjacent the compound for the children to try.
We need volunteers to assist with coordination, to act as beach crew, to crew a patrol boat and to helm dinghies (Club boats or your own) taking 2 or 3 teenagers for 40/45 minute sailing experience sessions.
If you can help, please contact Moss, the Vice Commodore
