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 

November 2020 update



In accordance with government requirements for sports clubs, the clubhouse and its facilities are closed until December 2nd 2020.  We very much regret that this includes access to the Dinghy Park. 

 Members may access the Dinghy Park for the purposes of essential maintenance of their boats which cannot wait until the end of the four week period. Please note that access to remove your dinghy/kayak to take it home is not considered an essential reason.

Members must take personal responsibility for their access to the Dinghy Park and for complying with government requirements regarding Covid 19. 

If we receive further information about closure we will inform members and act on it as soon as is practical.
