About the club

The club is mostly involved in dinghy sailing and keeps several dinghies by the Hamble for members to sail. We welcome beginners as well as experienced sailors of all levels.

In the season the club tends to sail as a group on Friday afternoons/evenings, and members also take the boats out for training and racing. There are also shore based winter training activities and various social activities. As well as sailing the club dinghies, some club members organise holidays to sail larger boats.

The club mostly communicates via a couple of Lotus Notes mailing lists, but will also be advertising events on this website (which will be expanded into proper site soon).


Membership fees are

We are affiliated to the Hamble River Sailing Club and so membership of the IBM Sailing club includes membership of the Hamble River Club and access to their boats, training courses and events.

Membership forms
