WELCOME TO HCSC
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 VIRUS: RE-OPENING OF CLUB FACILITIES.
The clubhouse and all our facilities, including the toilets, showers, kitchen, bbqs are now fully open for use by members and their guests.
Organised sailing activities have resumed – see our programme for details.
Social events are picking up but with an emphasis on fresh air so long as the weather allows. Tuesday coffee mornings continue and are a good opportunity to meet club members.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. We will then alert other members.
We have had a good sailing season. Autumn events could be limited by Covid 19 risks but we hope to have some.
