The Portsmouth Sailing Project

Thank you for visiting the Portsmouth Sailing Project website.

The project is back for 2016, and aims to get even more local young children aged 9-13 yrs to experience the benefits of sailing.

The sessions will be hosted at Portsmouth Sailing Club from Monday 25th July until Friday 26th August 2016. The project has a target of providing sailing taster sessions for up to 1,000 young people with a further 48 places available for young people to sail regularly.

The particular focus of the project this year is to provide sailing sessions for young people who might not ordinarily have access to sailing, to inspire them, and give them a taste of the sport.

Individuals will be able to book their session via in June.

If you are keen to participate in sailing before the project starts, please contact Portsmouth Water Sports Centre and they offer taster sessions, lessons and ongoing junior participation sessions.

For additional information on the closest place to sail for you, please go to and you can search for clubs, centres and other venues.

Thanks for your interest in this project and best of luck with your sailing.
