Organised sailing events

Our members organise sailing events in UK coastal waters, the English Channel and further afield including the Caribbean and Mediterranean.

We organise rallies, cruises during the sailing season and Solent Fast Cruises over the winter. This year we have events on the South coast, East coast, the Caribbean and Italy. In 2018 we holding a joint cruise with our sister club in the USA, The Corinthians, where members sail as guests on each other's yachts.

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.
