Update March 2022

I reviewed these notes at the end of March 2022. Only changes I can see are to the prices but note our members notes on Hardway Sailing Club below which is gaining in repute.

Friendly and busy club, encouraging visitors, as described. Still £10 a night - arrive when the bar is open and get a fob/card for a tenner. This opens the clubhouse door and pontoon gate. Return via the honesty box when you leave, with a further tenner for each subsequent night. I don't know how much, if anything, they charge to use their buoys overnight.

Water at intervals along the pontoon but electricity only near the root, and that generally in use by members. Good clean showers and heads and decent beer in the clubhouse. Food as well sometimes, but I haven't sampled that -and the galley is closed at the moment due to the dreaded lurgy.

Co-op eight minutes' brisk walk away, with Chinese takeaway next door. Two miles to walk to Gosport town centre, via Priddy's Hard where you can visit the RN 'Explosion' museum.

Pontoon is bumpy in an easterly, which is in progress as I write, until the tide goes out.
