Welcome to Portchester Sailing Club – a thriving family orientated club, offering attractive facilities.

PSC_Handbook_cover_2017Portchester Sailing Club is located in the upper reaches of Portsmouth Harbour, adjacent to Portchester Castle. Founded in 1928, the club caters for those who sail a dinghy or yacht as well as those who fish or have a motorboat. Our Club activities are all supported by a great social programme and whatever your level of interest, be it sailing, leisure boating or fishing, Portchester Sailing Club has something to offer you.

The Club is a recognised RYA Training Centre and a recognised RYA OnBoard Centre which aims to introduce sailing to the wider community, specifically our local school children as well as having gained Clubmark status with the Angling Trust. We offer courses for both adults and children with a range of dinghy courses as well as powerboat and first aid training and Angling coaching throughout the year. In the winter we run RYA theory courses at Day skipper and Yachtmaster levels. The club owns a range of craft for use by club members for both training and recreational purposes and have a number of moorings available for members.

Moat afloat

A big thank you to Graham Allibone and his happy volunteers for spending over 170 hours digging tonnes of mud and seaweed from the trollop, the seaward channel to the castle sluice gate.

The sluice gate can now be operated to allow fresh seawater to enter and leave the moat and it’s great to see the castle surrounded by water again.
