Yacht Racing, Home of the Warsash Spring Series, Weekend Cruises, Dinghy Racing, Youth Training, Women on Water, great catering and a very active social programme are all on offer at our club. We are a club run by our members located at the entrance to the Hamble River, at the heart of UK sailing with easy access to the Solent.
Our club has two sites, Shore House and Lobster Quay, each with a club building, about 50 metres apart. Shore House clubhouse has fabulous views of the water borne activities and houses our administration and social facilities. Directly opposite Shore House is our jetty with mooring facilities and the club race box. Lobster Quay clubhouse provides showers, changing and training facilities and an all states of the tide launching facility.
The success of WSC is due to its balanced membership and activities, with members cruising and racing in boats from dinghies to the largest blue water yachts.
With around 1500 members nearly all areas of marine expertise are represented within the Club which effectively means that help and advice is always readily available.
