Calshotcats Sailing Club


About the club

Calshotcats Sailing Club is a Catamaran and Monohull sailing club, non-racing (although some fleet trips seem very competitive to me!!!). We have a mixture of boats Hobies, Darts, Prindles, Spitfires and  Nacras and Isos.

We are located in a glorious position, right at the end of Calshot Spit where Southampton Water meets the Solent. This means no time is wasted, sailing out of a river or marina to get to the prime sailing areas!

We are a very friendly club and enjoy monthly family barbecues as well as other social events so why not come and give crewing a try....we are always looking for Crew!


Our members only clubhouse is located right next to the slipway and the slipway is usable at any stage of the tide. The club door faces Calshot Castle and the windows face seawards so there are fabulous all round views from Southampton to Portsmouth and beyond. We are the only club with no tide restrictions for launching and landing and we also have heated sail lockers which are available all year round.

The entire centre is watched over by security guards and recorded security systems.
