For Yachtsmen there are establishment yachts to charter and a programme of racing organised in the Solent and Offshore from Spring to early Autumn and an active Cruising Group which has several rallies every year and produces Gossip, a newsletter which is distributed to registered members by email. There is also the opportunity to take RYA recognised training courses and examinations.
RNSA Moorings (Portsmouth) has a wide variety of moorings including walk ashore marina type, midstream pontoons as well as deep water swinging moorings, available to members at competitive rates. .

There is an active Windsurfing community including several very experienced Instructors who utilise the Army facilities at Thorney Island. The courses range from complete novices up to advanced level and can also include an introduction to racing.
Dinghy sailing is mostly concentrated on the Royal Navy Sailing Centre at Whale Island where, as well as a full spectrum of training courses, we run inter establishment racing evenings and RYA Power boat courses.
