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.

The good news is that Simon Mussell and Gary Langdown have been out showing how to sail faster than anyone else, again, at the Open Meeting at Weston SC last weekend with Simon walking away with the top spot honours and Gary sitting in a fabulous 5th place. Well done guys!! Full report below:
IT MAY HAVE SKIPPED .......
…..Your notice but HSC have their biggest event to date coming up in a week. This massive undertaking requires the filling of 14 posts on the water, 6 on the beach and 6 in the clubhouse every day. The organising team are enormously grateful to all of those who have stepped forward and offered to get wet, get busy and get involved and virtually all of the jobs that need doing have a volunteer in place – with the exception, unfortunately of the galley and bar.
Are there any kind-hearted souls out there who can spare an hour or 2 during the week to help look after a hungry, thirsty bunch of Contender sailors. Some of them have, after all, travelled from long distances to compete and are dying to taste the local cuisine.
If you would like to come and help out the 2 poor ladies trying to run the show on their own please contact email@example.com. An hour or 2 is all they need and you never know, it might just be a whole load of fun! Thanks.
