Within our Clubhouse is a hot drinks machine, with tea, coffee and hot chocolate available all for £1.50 a cup. Members can access this machine at any time. For some specific organised events such as our Thursday morning Ladies and Social Sailing sessions, and on organised Family Fun Days we also provide tea and coffee from our front galley free of charge to our members. The Club also has a small licenced bar which sells soft drinks, and beer, wine and lager when open, usually on a Wednesday Evening after Club Racing, Friday Evening Club Nights, and occasionally on Sundays when special activities are planned. Due to the licence we hold as a community organisation alcohol may only be sold to members and their guests.
Organised groups, such our Group Members including New Forest Sailability and Sandleheath Sea Scouts, and visiting groups such as Class Association Training Squads or similar can book the "Front Galley" to enable the provision of hot drinks to their participants. For full details of how to book out the Front Galley and what is provided to users please contact the office.
As a small club Spinnaker Sailing Club currently has no regular provision of food. For specific events we do organise for external caterers to come in and provide refreshments, for example at UKTRA 2021 and the Wessex Winter Warmer 2022 a catering van came in, while for smaller events such as our Blashford Barrel Regatta in 2021 Jackie our former Club Caterer returned to support the event. If you are planning an event and would like help making contact with external providers please do ask and we will help make introductions.
Spinnaker Sailing Club has in the past had a regular provision of food, most notably on Wednesday Evenings after Club Racing, and on Sundays. At this time this is not something the Club can offer, however, we do still have a fully equipped commercial "Rear Galley." Spinnaker Sailing Club continues to be a registered food premises with New Forest District Council. Visiting groups can book out the Rear Galley to enable the provision of hot food under their own auspices. For further information on the requirements to use the Rear Galley and advice please contact the office in the first instance.
