Social Sailing & Dinghy Cruises
Our sailing season runs from April to October with ongoing winter sailing for the hardy folk.
Hire a club boat for £21 or sail your own and join the family friendly social sails.
These sessions are aimed at people who want to improve their sailing, sail with others and explore the harbour or just enjoy a sail with others. The patrol boat will usually be on the water for 2 hours from the start time, unless a special sail is shown in the calendar. Please let the leader know what you would like to get out of the session and they will try to meet your needs.This year's events include a sail around the islands in Langstone Harbour (the famous 'North West Passage' sail).
These are fun sessions aimed at people who want to sail in company and improve their sailing skills while there is safety boat rescue coverage. All abilities are welcome.

A number of cruises are organised each year. These are non-competitive fun events. In general, every one is welcome but you will be expected to be have basic control of your boat and for it to be sea-worthy.All or some of the following will run each year:
- East Head - A social sail to East Head (beautiful sandy beach at the eastern side of the entrance to Chichester Harbour), where we usually have a barbeque / picnic (provide your own food), go swimming, play games etc. All welcome. Spare clothing and food / drink etc can be carried in Sinbad. The nearest amenities are at Hayling Island Sailing Club on the other side of the harbour entrance (sail across) or a reasonably long walk to West Wittering. Sailability and sometimes cruisers join in this event.This is a full day event (due to the limitations of the tide in returning to the club).
- Priory Potter (Isle of Wight) Sail down Langstone Harbour and across the Solent to the Isle of Wight for a fun day on the beach. Similar to the East Head cruise we usually have a barbeque / picnic (provide your own food), go swimming, play games etc.Spare clothing and food / drink etc can be carried in Sinbad. Sailability and sometimes cruisers join in this event.This is a full day event (due to the limitations of the tide in returning to the club). Sailors must be reasonably competent. There will be a limit on the type of dinghy that can take part for safety reasons.
- Cobnor camping week-end Sadly we are unable to run the Cobnor Camp in 2023 as there are no facilities available to campers.
