Sailing / Yacht Club
The Club was formed in 1967 on derelict, ministry of Defence land adjacent to an old quarry slipway. This slipway had been rebuilt during the Second World War to serve as a launching point for Allied troops. Over the years the land has been cleared and reclaimed using voluntary labour by the Club members. It provides a Clubhouse, workshop, toilets, changing rooms and storage facilities for boats. As a division of the Civil Service Sailing Asssociation (CSSA), it is a private sailing Club exclusively for Civil Servants. The Civil Service Sporta and Leisure Ltd, High Wycombe, Bucks, our parent body and leaseholder of the site, provides sailing facilities for its shareholder members through the CSSA. Moorings are under licence from the MoD. These moorings are essentially drying moorings and are laid and maintained by the Club. HSPC is also affiliated to the Port of Plymouth Sailing Association and to the Royal Yachting Association.
