The Cracknore Hard Sailing Club moorings are situated close to SMC military base at the upper reaches of Southampton Water providing access to the Solent.

The club has strong links with Marchwood Yacht Club, who appreciatively allow short term pontoon access for loading and unloading, bar and shower facilities, and reduced over-night mooring costs. The lack of permanent club facilities enables club fees to be kept to a minimum, with current mooring fees possibly the lowest on Southampton Water.


This is a self help club and we keep our cost low by doing some of the maintenance work our selves. As a member we will need your help once during the year to inspect the buoys arround your boat. Full instructions and guidance is given and you help out as part of a team.

We normally do the inspection at the end of February and the start of March.

Please check out the map below and take a look at the video.
