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.

COVID 19 update

WIth the change in government rules, individual sailors can sail according to:

  1. their own risk assessment,

  2. observing social distancing and

  3. avoiding situations which would necessitate callout of emergency services. 


We are pleased to say that club organised racing and pottering will start again as from August 1st 2020.  Please see the annual programme for details.     

We regret that social events cannot start as yet and that changing facilities are not available.  


There are special Covid Secure guidelines in place.  For instance, numbers are limited to 20 and briefings will take place for groups of 5 people at a time.   You are asked to arrive ready to sail and to be prepared to leave in wet clothes.   There are special procedures for signing up and for the use of club boats.


We hope you will think it is worth these small inconveniences in order to get back to shared sailing.
