Welcome to our website


Port Solent Yacht Club was founded in 1990 and we are an RYA affiliated club which also provides many other benefits to our members. There are currently over 60 member boats (broadly split 60/40, Sail/Power) based in Port Solent representing around 100 individual members.

Whatever your interest in boats the Port Solent Yacht Club has something to offer: Sail or Power boats, beginner or experienced sailor, boat-owner or crew, the Club is always delighted to welcome new members.

Our on the water and social events

We offer a full program of events throughout the year. Activities include cross channel flotillas, local rallies and themed events, as well as informal meets during the season.

If you are new to boating, you’ll find plenty of support and encouragement. We attach importance to training and can facilitate members achieving ICC(Sail) and CEVNI qualifications.

During the winter several social events are offered. Please browse the ‘Sailing Programme’ section of this website to learn more about our activities.

Our location
We operate out of Port Solent Marina located at the northern end of Portsmouth harbour.

Club Update & Season Newsletter

The Club committee has been working hard to enhance and improve our website, editorials, regalia, membership processes, membership contact lists and other collateral that we use to promote our wonderful club to existing and new members.

Some of the enhancements you will have seen include our improved website, club bookmarks and editorials, summer rally program and the cross channel cruise trip we have planned. We have a new dedicated club email address for the Committee to communicate with members, this single address will enable you to ask questions directly to the Committee and which any one of us can reply.

New for 2019 is our private Facebook group, this is a simple private site where members of the Club can post messages, suggestions, share moments and facilitate informal meetings on the water. We also welcome members to upload photographs that we may use to improve our website and include in our annual photo competition.

We are really excited for the future of the PSYC, it’s our ambition to increase our membership 50% by 2020 and make this a truly exciting environment for existing and new members to join. We hope that you will be our ambassadors on the water and help us to reach this goal, We ask you to provide anyone interested in joining our club with our new email address portsolentYC@gmail.com and we will do our best to be proactive and responsive. We have an ambition to be the most welcoming yacht club in The Solent.

Please accept our sincere thanks for your continued support and friendship throughout the year and we look forward to seeing you on the water through the season
