Welcome to Hayling Ferry Sailing Club

Hayling Ferry Sailing Club is a small, friendly club, superbly located at the western tip of Hayling Island. From our well equipped club house, our fleet of catamarans and monohulls enjoys some of the best sailing in the Solent and the south coast of England.

New members are always welcome whether you own a boat or not.

Hayling Ferry Sailing Club Corona Virus Response

In the light of the current situation with the corona virus pandemic it will come as no surprise that the Spring work party is cancelled and we will not be opening the Clubhouse or clearing the slipway until further notice.
Please do not come to the Club until the current travel restrictions are relaxed.
The Committee will continue to monitor the situation and we will get the Club open as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
We have also taken the decision to cancel this year’s Solent Forts Race and Band on the Beach.

Solent Forts Race and Band on the Beach

The weather forecast for Sunday is good and currently we expect that the Solent Forts Race will go ahead as planned.

If Saturday’s conditions are as forecast then the practice race may be cancelled or run later than scheduled.

The entertainment planned for Saturday evening will go ahead as planned. If people wish to arrive during the evening then there will be no problem with registration. Bar opens at 18:00, food from 19:00, band on at 20:00.

Laying up supper


The laying up supper will take place on Friday 30th November 2019 (the night before the work party and AGM).

From 7pm with food served at 7.30pm.

Island Cup results

Lunch at Langstone Sailing Club

Warm winds and sunshine saw a good turnout for this year's Island Cup with 9 boats starting and finishing including 6 Dart 18s. Conditions were lighter than expected with a shifting NE wind for the seafront and Chichester harbour legs favouring those at the front of the fleet. After a mostly liquid lunch stop at Langstone Sailing Club, and with the wind now blowing from the SW, the fleet squeezed their way through the old railway into Langstone harbour searching for the best wind for the beat home.


New club anemometer

New anemometer

The club has a new anemometer which replaces the long-serving but increasingly decrepit old one. A key feature of the new one is that it is bluetooth enabled so you can download an app to your Android or Apple smart phone and see what the wind is doing from anywhere within a 50+ metre radius of the clubhouse.

App details and instructions are on the website on the club anemometer page.

Thanks all for yet another great Solent Forts Race and Band on the Beach

I want to thank everyone on behalf of the Club for a fantastic team effort at the weekend, both on and off the water. A lot of hard work but good fun too, and loads of positive feedback from the competitors and guests.

Full results and links to reports, GPS tracks and photos can be found on the SFR 2018 race page.


Band on the Beach 2018


Keep the 2nd June free for this year's "Band on the Beach". Good food, fine ales and great music make for a truly memorable summer night.

This year sees the return of the excellent Groove Apprentice!
