Calshot Cats 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
Come and give crewing a try, we are always looking for Crew.
Open to mono's and catamarans.
First year family membership half price.
Only club with no tide restrictions for launching and landing
Heated sail locker all year round
Monthly family bbq and other social events
Accommodation and camping available
As you can see from the photo we are located in a glorious position, right at
the end of 'Calshot Spit," which is at the junction of 'Southampton Water' and
the 'Solent' (no time wasted sailing out of a river or marina to get to the
prime sailing areas)
Our clubhouse is located right next to the
usable at any stage of the tide, with the club door facing the castle
and windows facing seaward, so we get a superb view from Southampton to
Portsmouth and beyond. There are 3 other
slipways at Calshot!!
It is heated all winter,
contains a kitchen, sail storage racks, a 'wet' area, changing cubicles, a tool
cupboard and just through an internal door HOT showers all day long, in the main
building, where you can also find a Bar and Food.
The main buildings are actually old aircraft
hangars ..... this was previously 'RAF Calshot' (a flying boat base). Within
this large 'hanger' is also a ski slope, a climbing wall, toilets, showers, a
pub/restaurant (with sea views), a banked cycle track, air rifle/archery range
and reception area. Courses are also available to learn, kite surfing,
windsurfing, kayaking, power boating and 'big' boat sailing.
How many other sailing clubs have onsite
facilities that can compare with these!
The entire centre is watched over by security guards and recorded CCTV systems.
