Hurst Castle Sailing Club is a lively and friendly club where the emphasis is on the enjoyment of all water activities. It is located in Keyhaven some 4 miles west of Lymington at the head of a small estuary facing the Isle of Wight.


Keyhaven River is protected from the open sea by a long shingle spit, at the tip of which is Hurst Castle. 


We have a full programme of sailing events during the season including dinghy racing during the week and at weekends as well as pottering when we sail dinghies to local creeks and harbours.


There is also a full social programme at the clubhouse throughout the year.


A cruising programme takes larger boats to more distant destinations in the Solent and along the South Coast.


We give a warm welcome to people of all ages, with a range of boating interests and levels of experience. We are very much a family-orientated club.
