Highcliffe Sailing Club is located at the prime coastal location of Mudeford Quay allowing the club to offer sailing in the sheltered waters of Christchurch harbour and open water sailing in Christchurch Bay..
This makes it an ideal club for sailors of all abilities and aspirations. The club has a friendly and informal atmosphere.
It is predominantly a family club with members of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. All members are expected to help with the running of the club, It's a good way to meet people and it's fun to be involved.

WHAT'S ON - THE WATER
LAST COUPLE OF DAYS TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR DUTIES BEFORE THEY ARE ALLOCATED BY THE COMMITTEE
Even though we are having a break from racing at HSC, the social sailing is still going strong. Eleven of us had fun out playing in the gusty southwesterly today especially as the sun came out to warm us all and the springs delivered a 1.9m tide. Perfect.
If you want to race however, we are invited to join CSC this Saturday for the next instalment in their Icebreaker series. Racing starts at 11am with a 1.8m high tide at 11:50.
WHAT'S ON - AT THE CLUB
If you don't fancy going out on the water but still want to enjoy your club, come and join us for the next set of 6 Nations rugby matches. I am pretty sure the sailors will be hanging around after their battle with CSC, so there should be bodies at the club from 13:30 with France taking on Scotland at 14:15 followed by the clash between a dragon and the dragon slayer from 16:45.
Well, it looks like the advertised Social 'Calcutta Cup Curry' on 16th March is going to be a popular one! Thanks to everyone who has signed up already.
All the Rugby matches will be shown that day, starting at midday and finishing with England vs Scotland at 17:00. Neil will be on hand to get things hot and spicy from 18:00. Meal is £8:00 per head, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name down. Last orders taken 13th March. Details on flyer on website.
