Day Skipper and Competent Crew Course
Is anybody interested in doing their Day Skipper or Competent Crew courses? I am looking at the idea of running one or more courses if there is interest.
These courses are 5 days and I would probably run from a Wednesday through to a Sunday. This would only mean taking 3 days holiday to do the course. At this stage I cannot finalise the prices. Factors that influence the price are High or Low Season (ie do you want to do in the summer?) and number of people on the yacht. Normally we would have 5 candidates but if you wanted to pay more and have a smaller number on the course this would be possible. Price range would be £400-£600 depending on which of the options was finally chosen.
Please register if you are interested and an event will be published on the website when there is sufficient interest for us to book the course.
To register for any event, you will need to be a Member or Temporary Member.

Please email me or phone me to discuss when you want to do the course and what your preferences are:

1908 Brighton or Bust
Do you fancy a sail along the south coast to Brighton for an evening out? This is a good sea-based mile builder passage. The plan is Friday night to Portsmouth, Saturday to Brighton, then take a taxi the two miles into town for dinner at a nice restaurant.
Then back to Portsmouth/Chichester/Bembridge on Sunday with a return to Hamble on the Monday afternoon. Any recommendations on restaurants welcome.
1910 Skills: John Mountain Cup 2019 (Deposit)
The annual Club Challenge, testing yacht-master and seamanship skills for skippers, mates and their crew. It's competitive, fun, exhausting, sometimes wet & cold, but probably our best event of the year. This event is designed for improving seamanship skills at all levels.
The full price for the weekend is expected to be around £200 with a full complement of crew and a club skipper.
An initial non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to secure your place on this trip.
1912 Buoy Hunt "Points make Prizes" (Deposit)
Skills and social cruise
A sort of orienteering treasure hunt! Buoy to buoy navigation under sail. Use the wind and tide to visit as many buoys as you can around the Solent. Some buoys score higher than others, so it’s all about the planning.
The full price for the weekend is expected to be around £180 with a full complement of crew and a club skipper.
