The Sailing Committee puts together a sailing programme for the year and oversees the race managagement and organisation. All members of the club with a dinghy in the dinghy park, or who regularly crew in club racing, are expected to help run club racing at least three times per year.
The Turbo handicap class comprises a wide variety of monohull dinghies; trapeze and hiking, single and double handed, foiling and non-foiling. The only requirement for this class is that you have a Portsmouth Yardstick of 930 and below.
We consider ourselves to be a family club. We welcome children and hope that they will want to learn to sail. The club is very keen to introduce your children to the joys of sailing. In fact, we have introduced sailing to some of the best sailors in the world, Ben Ainslie being our most famous. Apart from being lots of fun, sailing is very beneficial to children's development. We train young sailors using Optimists & Mirrors.
All members must apply for spaces in the boat park and spaces are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Boats are to be parked in accordance with the layout plan (see below, and posted on the Club Notice Board).
