Dating back to 1889, the Island Sailing Club has a rich history in yachting and racing, and offers a wide range of sailing, social and membership benefits.


The Club caters for all abilities, from beginners through to experienced sailors. There are opportunities to learn sailing and develop your sailing skills. For more experienced sailors, there are also opportunities to participate in regular races. The Club’s professionally maintained Sonar fleet is available for hire – either individually or as a fleet of nine. This ensures everyone can access sailing, whether you have your own boat or not.


The Club has always been a place where like-minded people can share their knowledge, stories, and passion for sailing in a friendly and welcoming environment – creating a fantastic sense of community. Members have access to Club facilities, including the Lounge Bar, Beken Room, Dining Room and Conservatory, where you can drink and dine, and enjoy breathtaking views of the Solent. Moreover, there are numerous events, making the Club a great place to socialise and interact with others.
