“I am sure that everyone who attends will have a day to remember.”

Founded in 1932 by Officers of RAF Calshot, the club still maintains its close association with the Royal Air Force, however the majority of members are civilians with a keen interest in all things nautical.

Membership of the Club is open for all to apply.
