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.

If, on the other hand, you would prefer to leave your boat at the club and avoid tripping over it in your drive all winter, then contact the who will happily assist with the necessary 'paperwork' to transfer you to all-year parking.
