Membership at HSC


Highcliffe Sailing Club

Highcliffe Sailing Club welcomes new members of all sailing and water sport abilities. The aim of the club is to promote the sport of sailing both for those wishing to race and just social sail, and encourage people out onto the water in dinghies, kayaks, SUPs and windsurfers.


The majority of the organised activities are based around Dinghy Racing with a programme of events both in the sheltered waters of Christchurch harbour and at sea in Christchurch Bay, however the Club is also home to over 50 kayaks and several windsurfer/kitesurfers.

Please come and visit the Clubhouse to meet members and have a look around. Sunday lunchtime is ideal. If you wish to arrange a visit for another time, please use the contact link.

Application forms are available in the club or can be downloaded using the link above. Please print, complete in full and return to Highcliffe Sailing Club via email to, by post to our Clubhouse details below, or drop it into our secure letter box at the Club.
