Phoenix is a members' club that runs two yachts. These are used for cruising, racing and RYA training. Members pay a small annnual membership fee and then pay for their sailing by the day - with sailing fees starting at £28 a day. We welcome new members so please take a look around the site and then contact us.

Why Phoenix Yacht Club?

There are many ways to go sailing: you might join a flotilla holiday, charter a bare boat to skipper yourself or even buy your own boat. However all of these approaches have drawbacks; they are expensive and you need to get a group of friends together to form a crew. Phoenix Yacht Club is unusual as the club owns the boats and the members can book places on sailing trips by the berth and by the day. This means you can go sailing for as little as £28 a day!

Boat Location

We keep our two yachts in Haslar Marina, Gosport. RelaX is on berth G26 and Quartette on berth I1. Both are easily visible from the road that runs alongside the marina so if you are passing please take a look. If you are interested in joining we will be happy to show you around the boats or make arrangements for you to come on an introductory sail.
