The Southampton Water Sailing Association is a group of 10 member clubs whose aim is to promote sailing on Southampton Water, and friendly racing between members. Ashlett Sailing Club members regularly take part in events on and off the water run by or under the umbrella of SWSA.

Our very own Deborah Boles is the liaison between SWSA and Ashlett SC and regularly contributes news and events items to the ASC Monthly Newsletter.

This page of our website will also be updated with items that may be of interest to ASC members.

S.W.S.A. Update - July 2020

Our sailing events have re-started with two evening races. Unfortunately a strong wind forecast meant the first weekend race was cancelled. Due to Covid19 restrictions, boats have been crewed by family members or sailed singlehanded. Races have been white sail events to make it more manageable for shorthanded boats. Also singlehanded boats have been given a handicap boost to make it fairer for them.  Numbers of participants have been good so far with Enigma and Martine turning out from Ashlett SC. Race reports and pics can be found at :  



Upcoming Event- Singlehanded Race at Hythe SC

Saturday 18th July @10:15

This ever-popular race is always well attended - Especially if lighter winds are forecast!  

A white sail only event, it is very suitable at the moment, as it meets all the covid 19 restrictions! 

It is held just off Hythe sailing club.

One of the difficulties for Ashlett boats are our tidal restrictions. Hythe sailing Club have said that boats can be moored overnight following an SWSA event.  Also it is possible to moor at Warsash SC.

If you think you want to take part and may want to take advantage of this can you please let me know so I can make arrangements with HSC.
