Here at Hastings & St Leonards Sailing Club we can look back at over some fifty one years of providing some fantastic sailing & related social facilities. We currently have fleets of the following classes, however all classes are accepted as long as they fit through the boat house doors (shearwaters and hobbies just make it through!) Currently our largest racing fleets are the Laser and Dart 16, closely followed by developing Merlin Rocket and Miracle fleets. The attractive licensed Club House affords facilities for dances and other social events attracting the non-sailing member, while the sailors can obtain hot meals from the well equipped kitchen.
We are a family-centred sailing club located on an unspoilt beach at the western end of a 3km stretch of beach fronting the small seaside town of Seaford. Almost uniquely, the club has an inland site at Piddinghoe Lake, where our RYA-accredited sailing school is located. Here you can learn how to sail and windsurf in a safe and protected environment before venturing out on the sea. Powerboat training is undertaken out of Newhaven Marina. See the club”s website for full details of all training that we can provide. The area is surrounded by the South Downs National Park and within easy reach of Brighton, Eastbourne and London by road, bus and rail links.
The Club specialises in dinghy and cruiser racing as well as providing a base for cruising sailors intent on exploring the South Coast and beyond. Racing at sea is run from the clubs committee boat with safety support provided by two RIBs. The Club runs PY racing for all comers. While a good number of classes are represented at the club, the two-man RS400 and one-man Laser are the most popular designs. The programme comprises various racing series for club trophies as well as several one-off and novelty races. There is a strong emphasis on support for cadets, which includes a dedicated summer cadet regatta.
