Confirmed2 - 4 AugFri eve to Sun pm2Paul Mapp Celebration Weekend1 / 120 / 0 / 2Hamble245 - 305
A club event to celebrate the life and friendship of Paul Mapp, who sadly and unexpectedly passed away last September. Anticipated to be a happy and joyful weekend sharing our memories of Paul on his birthday weekend.
Cancelled30 Aug - 1 SepFri eve to Sun pm2City Sailing Series - Finn Trophy and Spread Eagle Regatta1 / 81 / 1 / 6Solent295 - 390
IMPORTANT: The club won’t be participating in this regatta but see the John Lewis partnership Sailing Club Regatta in October.
Arguably the main event of the City Sailing Series, this one being organised by the Lloyds Insurance, Baltic & Stock Exchanges, with Saturday dinner in the Royal Yacht Squadron (TBC) in Cowes. It should be a superb weekend! More information can be found at
Provisional11 - 13 OctFri 5pm to Sun 4pm2City Sailing Series - John Lewis Partnership Sailing Club Regatta1 / 81 / 1 / 4HambleTBC
The John Lewis Partnership Sailing Club Regatta is part of the City Sailing Series, with the Island Sailing Club in Cowes hosting the event and also the dinner on the Saturday evening. We are hoping the dates for this event will better suit a number of club members who were unable to attend the Spread Eagle Regatta earlier in the year. More information can be found at
Confirmed25 - 27 OctFri 5pm to Sun 4pm2End of Summer Weekend2 / 161 / 1 / 7Hamble290 - 370
Occurring on the last full weekend in October, this is the most popular of all the club’s events and a great opportunity to catch up with lots of club members. The semi-formal Saturday evening dinner (included in the sailing fee) is a great social event: venue suggestions are welcome.
The higher than usual cost is an estimate and covers the charter of a larger yacht, such as a Dufour 460 GL (as per last year). Final pricing will depend on bookings.

Those who can’t come along to the End of Season Rally are welcome to join everyone for dinner on the Saturday evening, venue TBC (but somewhere on or near the Solent).

Event Notes

  • New members: Of any experience (or none), are always welcome.
  • Members: Please bring your family, friends, colleagues with you. Why not organise an ‘office activity weekend’?
  • Adjustments: If you want to adjust the programme — add an event, change a location, extend a weekend by a day or two — please ask. You never know, other people might be wishing for the same.
  • Training: Brush up your skills or more specific if you have something you want to focus on. We could extend or change this to mid-week (cheaper) if required.
  • Mid-week days: Avoid the weekend crowds and get cheaper sailing (five days almost costs the same as a weekend).
  • Dinner only: Events listed as ‘dinner only’ are for members who are unable to come along to the main sailing event but wish to attend the dinner.
