Here's a summary of what you get from the Little Ship Club
Organised sailing events
Our members organise sailing events in UK coastal waters, the English Channel and further afield including the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
We hold rallies and cruises during the sailing season and Solent Fast Cruises over the winter. This year we have events on the South coast, East coast, and throughout Europe. Every other year we hold a joint cruise with our sister club in the USA, The Corinthians, where members sail as guests on each other's yachts.
Sail whatever your experience
You don't have to be a boat owner or an experienced sailor to enjoy your membership. There are plenty of opportunities available for you to gain experience with our other members.
Use our Crew service that matches up skippers and crews for Little Ship Club events and for members making their own voyages.
