Portchester Sailing Club is located in the upper reaches of Portsmouth Harbour. Founded in 1928, the club now boasts a large clubhouse, 200 moorings, and a boat park for storing dinghies during the summer and smaller cruisers during the winter. The club operates for 12 months of the year with various activities both on and off the water. The Club bar is normally open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, alomg with Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes. A galley operates on Friday evenings (20:00 – 22:00), Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes (12:30 – 14:30) with a varied menu for all the family.

For more information, please download this brochure: PSC Publication.


PSC has 3 gates which are controlled by a key fob or keying in an access number on the keypad fitted to the support on which the gate is hinged.

Visitors requiring access should phone 02392 376375 during bar opening hours when standing by the land gate in Waterside Lane and ask the bar staff to allow entry. At present this is done manually but is shortly to be changed so it can be done remotely after viewing the request or by cctv at the gate.

If the visit is for an extended period such as a visit by another club for the weekend, notice needs to be given so that a code can be defined that can be keyed in on the keypad to allow access. This will only be for a defined period of time. Please close and secure the gate after entering.


At Portchester Sailing Club we have a very active group of cruiser sailors. The club offers deep water and half tide moorings and availability is usually good. Naturally, the most sheltered and closest moorings are more popular and have a waiting list.

Shore side facilities include hard standing for cruisers between October and April, a derrick for stepping and unstepping masts, and a pontoon, which is accessible for around 2 hours either side of high water.  Read more…

Dinghy Sailing

Dinghy sailing takes place at the club between April and October. Racing is held on Wednesday and Friday evenings, and at the weekends. Recreational sailing can take place at all states of the tide. The junior section is particularly well supported with a large Topper fleet. Read more…
