Seaview Yacht Club - Sail Mermaids
Welcome to the Solent – come and sail our fleet of Mermaids!
Sea View Yacht Club stands out among its peers as a result of having a fleet of one-design racing keelboats, owned by the members, and for the use of the members – distinctive assets available thanks to some very far-sighted members and officers over the past five or six decades.
The Seaview Mermaids are well known in the Solent, having been raced here for over 100 years and, indeed, are the oldest class of boats which have been consistent entries in the annual prestigious Cowes Week regatta.
There are currently thirteen boats owned by the Club which are ‘in-class’ to the current design and are raced daily throughout the season from April to September. They are maintained to a high order and strictly within tightly-controlled measurements such that Mermaid racing is highly competitive with the boats themselves totally evenly-matched.
- Every year Sea View Yacht Club, home of the Mermaids charter fleet, welcomes over 2,000 guest sailors who delight in racing our fleet of 12 identical Mermaid 26-foot keelboats. The boats are of a classic ‘Solent’ design, but of modern construction and, with a selection of rig options, are ideal for highly-skilled sailors or beginners alike.
- Your clients, your management team or other guests will enjoy an exceptional yacht racing or cruising experience, followed by first-rate onshore hospitality exclusively arranged for you at Sea View Yacht Club.
- We provide the boats, the sailing race courses, necessary race officials and boatmen who ensure your sailing experience is professionally delivered. Experienced helms from Sea View Yacht Club can also act as skippers for less-experienced charterers. The clubhouse offers full catering and business meeting facilities. These well-equipped premises command breath-taking panoramic views of the sailing and the Solent.
