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.

A Note from the New Commodore
Dear Seafarers,
Thank you for voting me in as your Commodore at the recent AGM.
I am very excited about taking on this role and look forward to working with you all to further the aims of our superb Sailing Club.
I hope, between us, we can continue to deliver ever better sailing opportunities for members, encouraging people to get out on the water, improve their sailing skills and above all have fun.
There is already a fantastic social element to our club and this must remain an integral part of what we have.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Clive again for all the hard work and leadership he has put in over the last 3 years.
Finally, please do try and make the Prize Giving and Laying-Up Supper on 5 Dec.
See you on the water or in the bar!
Phil Warwick

Possible Dinner Dance at Lee on the Solent Golf Club
It is some 18 months since we last held a dinner dance at Lee Golf Club.
As a non-refundable deposit is required, we need an indication of the level of support within the Club for such an event before booking this venue.
Friends will, as usual, be welcome.
The event could be held in Spring 2016 or, more likely, in January, February or March 2017.
The cost would be in the region of £30 to £35 pp.
Please speak to Viv Rance at the Club or email her ( )- you could just email `Dinner Dance - yes please` - to give an indication of whether or not you would support such an event.

Food Hygiene Inspection and Keeping the Clubhouse Clean
An Environmental Health Officer from Fareham Borough Council carried out a Food Hygiene inspection of the Club on Thursday 3rd September.
She was very happy with the food hygiene controls we have in place, the state of the various rooms including the bar area.
She was also pleased with the food safety management system and the way our volunteers are trained.
As a result, the Club has received a Food Hygiene Rating of 5, together with a certificate to display.
It will be three years before we need to be inspected again.
This award was achieved through the dedication of a small group of hard working members to whom we should all be grateful;
this includes the Coven and those conscientious individuals who clean the clubhouse.
Keeping the club clean and tidy, particularly after a sailing event, has been challenging.
The Committee is looking at ways to keep the clubhouse clean using a roster of volunteers.
If you would be willing to help, please talk to Chris, the Rear Commodore.
Meanwhile, remember that if you are the last person to use the changing room, mop the floor before you leave.

Last One Out
Recently, on opening the clubhouse, a member discovered that the hot water urn in the kitchen and the light in the disabled toilet were both switched on.
Please remember:
  • If you are the last person to use the changing room, mop the floor before you leave and, if male, turn off the fan.
  • If you are the last person to leave the clubhouse, please check that everything (that can be) is turned off (eg kitchen light, urn, and fan in men's room) and close the main door securely.
  • If you are the last person to leave the compound, please check that the main water tap (back fence) has been turned off and lock the gate.
