Welcome to the Speedbird Offshore Yacht Club's web page. We are a friendly and inclusive yacht sailing club based at Mercury Marina on the popular river Hamble, near Southampton. Our members enjoy day sails around the beautiful South coast Solent cruising area. There are sheltered anchorages, superb scenery and numerous ports to explore to the West such as the Beaulieu river, Lymington in the New Forest or Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Portsmouth, Wootton creek, Osborne Bay and Bembridge to the East. Opportunities for trips further afield to Chichester, Poole, the West Country and cross Channel are also available.
Memberships are currently available and open to all, whether you are a complete novice or an experienced sailor, we would love to welcome you aboard. Please see our website for further or email

In addition, we are an RYA recognised training centre with a team of experienced Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructors, offering some of the highest quality training available. 

The SOYC was launched in 1965 as a sailing club for the staff of British Airways and has evolved to become a successful, wholly independent, members' owned and operated Company, limited by guarantee. Life is a journey, start yours today with the SOYC
