We are Spinnaker Sailing Club, an inland sailing club based at Blashford Lake, near Ringwood, Hampshire, on the western edge of the New Forest.
Our lake was initially formed as a gravel pit, later becoming a Wessex Water reservoir. It is now an area of great natural beauty, and a part of the 189 hectare Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve.
Spinnaker has made a name for itself in the Team Racing world, but now also hosts an active Fleet Racing scene, as well as being an RYA recognised training centre. Being inland enables the Club to offer a large variety of activities, you can find out more about why we are a great environment for water sports by clicking here.
We also host many affiliated groups including a number of University sailing clubs, Schools, Cadet and Scout groups and the New Forest Sailability, who offer sailing experiences for all ages and disabilities.
Despite our beautiful rural position, we are conveniently located not far from the A31 and A338 and in easy driving distance of Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Salisbury, and Winchester.
Please explore the website to learn more about what we offer, should you wish to visit the Club or have any further questions please get in touch.
