Welcome to Felpham Sailing Club

2017 subscriptions are now due. Please note that the membership year runs from January to December and payment is due by end of February each year. Members who join after 1st September in any calendar year have their membership run through to the end of the following year. Membership enquiries can be sent to membership@felphamsailingclub.co.uk.

We have an exciting and busy programme for sailing and social members this year so we hope you will find everything you need to know about the best little sailing club on the south coast.

Recent years have seen our membership grow and it is great to see so many people using our club, both on and off the water.

It has been interesting to watch our cadet members improve significantly over the last few years, so much so that the cadets are giving the adults a real run for their money!

Following the very successful 2016 season, this sailing season will follow a similar format:-

Saturday – Informal sailing sessions together with skills sessions.  Please see the calendar for timings as these are planned to avoid high tides. Please arrive to rig your boat around an hour before the schedule start time.

Sunday sailing – three races back to back in the early and late season with two races in the morning and two races in the afternoon during peak season.

Friday cadet evenings – end of April to end of September from 5.30pm onwards. Parents are requested to stay during this session whilst their cadets are on the water and assist with trolleys, pulling boats up and down the beach and many other roles.

Wednesday evening racing – from beginning of May to the end of August – race starts at 7pm sharp.

Thursday evening WoW – Women on Water – an informal session for ladies, followed by a meal. Starts at 6pm and runs between May and August.

On the social side, the bar is open during peak season:

  • Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm
  • Friday evenings from 6pm
  • Saturday afternoon after sailing
  • Sunday lunchtime through to when the club closes

Please remember to check the programme for specific times and remember to check the website for up and coming events.

Happy Sailing
