East Cowes Sailing Club is located in Clarence Road, East Cowes, Isle of Wight, to the rear of the Victoria Tavern Public House.
The Club caters for a wide range of boats and boating activities, including a Fishing section. Members’ boats can be stored on the Club premises (indoor or outdoor, depending on available space in the stores), on fore-and-aft tidal moorings just offshore from the Club, and on tidal “finger” berths on the main pontoon – at the discretion of the Stores Officer. The end of the pontoon is accessible by water at all states of tide. We also have a Dinghy park on the East Cowes Esplanade, with free parking adjacent to it.
East Cowes Sailing Club is looked upon as a working club as well as the social aspect. The Club runs Thursday evening racing during the spring and summer months. The classes of racing include Dinghy, Handicap Cruisers, (spinnaker / non spinnaker Classes). Membership and Storage Fees are very competitive indeed, probably one of the lowest in the South of England.
The Club has a Members room for social and training purposes but does not have a bar in order to keep costs to a minimum. Maintenance of the premises is often carried out by the membership itself, under the direction of the Committee. See the Membership Information page for joining instructions and an application form.
