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.

Welcome to HCSC.   The clubhouse and all our facilities, including the toilets, showers, kitchen, BBQs are now fully open for use by members and their guests.  Club boats are available for hire by members.

 Covid 19 has not gone away so please continue to be aware of risks to others as well as yourself.  Maintain social distance and meet in the open air if possible. We are still providing sanitising fluid for hands and surfaces and equipment.

We have no organised sailing activities over the winter.  The 2022 programme  will be available on the web site in the spring.  During the winter the coffee mornings continue on Tuesdays and are a good opportunity to meet club members. We also have evening sailing talks once a month (but not in January)  They will be advertised on the web site.  However, events will be cancelled if local infection rates or government policy make this necessary.    

Please continue to register via the NHS  QR code which is on the doors.  Or notify us that you are at the club by emailing attheclub@hcsc.org.uk.

Please do not come to the club if you have any symptoms that might be Covid 19.


We hope you will not develop Covid 19 but if you do please alert us by emailing admin@hcsc.org.uk.  We will then alert other members.

Enjoy the club facilities and keep safe.
