The Milebuilding Club
The Milebuilding Club was originally created to enable relatively inexperienced sailors to get on the water easily. As things have developed over the last 7 years or so we have seen that experienced sailors also appreciate having access to fuss-free sailing with capped costs. The mainstay of our activities is regular day-sailing on the Solent with occasional trips abroad. Join us for weekly adventures, to build skills and make friends.

How does it work?

We sail Thunderbolt, our Bavaria 38 from Deacons marina on the Hamble river. We day-sail every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting and occasionally go away for a few days to northern France or the West Country. Sailing is organised by email and Google calendar so club members can see at a glance who is sailing and when. Club members can bring a guest by prior arrangement - if there is capacity, which there usually is. We have a maximum of 6 people on board and so far we have never had to ‘ration’ the sailing - some people sail several times a month, some less. Membership is for 12 months. Club subscription costs £200 / month. Returnable security deposit is £400.

What it is:

A club for people who would like to sail but don’t have regular crew. A club for sailors who would like to avoid a boat-ownership ‘runaway-costs’ nightmare. A club for sailors who like to sail regularly without fuss and formalities each time.

What it isn’t:

Something new - this is our 7 th  year A syndicate Shared ownership Yacht charter Corporate Complicated Stuffy Elitist
“A brilliant way to build skills & socialise on the Solent” The great strength of the milebuilding club is weekly, year- round day-sailing – the kind of regular sailing that is comfortably incorporated into a busy life.

Who it is for:

Ex boat owners, who will appreciate the capped costs, no-maintenance and not having to find crew. Newcomers, who will enjoy friendly tuition, perhaps before moving on to their own boat or chartering abroad. Anyone who would like to sail with an easy going
