A flexible and practical conference venue

Situated at the entrance to Chichester Harbour, the club enjoys a stunningly beautiful, natural setting. At the foot of the A3, Hayling Island Sailing Club is just over an hour from central London by train, and down the road from Southampton airport – access by road, rail or air couldn’t be easier. The harbour is of national and international importance for nature conservation and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Protection area for wild birds and a Special Area of Conservation.

The Clubhouse offers five purpose-built conference, meeting and training rooms, all equipped with high-specification audio-visual equipment as well as restaurant, private dining room and two bars. With our unique beach and waterside location, Hayling Island Sailing Club offers unbeatable facilities for team building activities, whether it be corporate sailing, paddle-boarding or fun on the beach. All combined with free parking for up to 400 cars and WiFi, your meeting and conference delegates will be delighted.

Meeting rooms
The stunning clubhouse offers extensive and versatile conference space. On the ground floor there are three adjacent meeting rooms which can be configured as one open plan, or two or three separate rooms. The main conference room on the first floor seats up to 200, while the second-floor conference and meeting room seats up to 40 people. All rooms have comprehensive audio-visual facilities. Our events team can configure each meeting room to suit your specific requirements.

Restaurant and bars
The spectacular restaurant, with unsurpassed views over Chichester Harbour and the South Downs, accommodates up to 180 guests. Choose from an array of catering choices, which include a wide selection of canapés, function and drinks menu packages.

For bespoke menus, our chef, will happily accommodate your every need to ensure that your event is extra special.

Our convenient and comfortable cabins are located in two blocks, Stocker and Dunes, both adjacent to the clubhouse and comprise 11 single or double rooms with en suite facilities. Bedding is supplied in all rooms, but guests need to bring their own towels.

The meeting rooms and restaurant, along with fresh homemade food, clean and comfortable onsite accommodation, reasonably priced bar and friendly and professional team, make Hayling Island Sailing Club the ideal venue for your event.

We all really enjoyed it, and the visitors were very impressed with everything from the clubhouse, through to the food and staff. Having dinner in the lounge bar worked perfectly. We had so many compliments and someone has expressed an interest in joining the club, so we’ll keep in touch with him on that.

The Beef Wellington was particularly special, and everyone except one managed to polish it all off!

Sparkman & Stephens Association

Thanks to Hayling Island SC for a great day at our broker event! We cannot think of a better opportunity for practice of good seamanship, than nurturing valuable relations through sailing and first-hand training in beautiful surroundings in fantastic weather

Norwegian Hull Club

I just wanted to add a personal note of thanks to the whole team at HISC for helping organise our event at such short notice and for providing a really great day for the whole team. The sailing was a big hit and the food as always delicious. The Caesar salad was a particular winner.
