Castle Cove Sailing Club is an active and friendly, family club located on the north shore of Portland Harbour. From small beginnings in a cliff-top chalet in 1923, we have grown steadily and in September 2002 we moved to our present site at the end of Old Castle Road, Weymouth.
During the lead up to the Olympics in 2012 we have welcomed sailors from over 20 countries to join us and train at the club. We have a strong self-help ethos and run an extensive programme of racing for both dinghies and keelboats. In conjunction with our busy sailing calendar we have a full social diary taking pride in being a very friendly club, run by members for members.

CCSC Sam Barker wins Youth Nationals in Spitfire
Sam Barker (Castle Cove SC) and Victoria Akhurst (Netley SC) continued their supreme reign on the Spitfire class, winning both races of the final day to round off a perfect week as the Spitfire Youth National Champions.
Although the scores paint a picture of an easy week, they have been challenged throughout Barker explained: "It's pretty cool, we didn't think it would happen like this. Seven firsts, we have had to work for every single one of them but to come out on top again is absolutely fantastic, it feels better than the last one.
"It's been tricky conditions and the fleet has put on some good racing for us. Overall I just think we had the pace and the experience. I just think we pulled it together to get there by the end of the race." continued Akhurst.
