Our location at the top of Portsmouth Harbour, offering direct access to a large, active but sheltered sailing area; great options for short passage sailing within the harbour or through the harbour entrance to access the eastern or western Solent, or further afield.
Rallies - Our members enjoy regular rallies around the solent. Popular destinations include Chichester Harbour, Bembridge, Cowes, the Hamble River, Beaulieu River, Yarmouth and Lymington all within easy reach from Portchester and suitable for a one or two night stay. The usual format for a rally is that each cruiser arrives independently at the destination where sufficient berths have been pre-booked by our Rally Coordinators. A late afternoon pontoon drinks party normally brings everyone together followed by either a group BBQ or dinner at a local sailing club or restaurant, also pre-arranged by the Rally Coordinators. All you need to do is just sail to the destination with your crew - and enjoy! See Events for up to date details.
Racing - club races are held throughout the season and members complete in the annual inter club series, which combines a good social weekend with a bit of friendly racing. More competitive members also compete in other regattas such as Cowes Week and Round the Island. See Events for up to date details.
We also have available our excellent moorings and facilities to support the cruiser sailor.
