Gosport is situated on the most southern coastline of the UK, opposite The Isle of Wight which is just over The Solent, and it occupies the whole of the sheltered western shore of Portsmouth Harbour, facing the Navy’s warships. Alongside the destroyers, frigates and aircraft carriers is the Historic Dockyard with Nelson’s HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860 and Henry the VIII’s flagship The Mary Rose. Then there is the commercial port with cruise ships, cross-channel ferries and polar exploration vessels.
The harbour has more shipping movements than any other port in the UK and for over a century Gosport has been the home of ocean racing. These include the great J-Class yachts and Alex Thomson’s world-beating Hugo Boss team and the harbour is now also home to Ben Ainslie’s School of Racing. Gosport boasts 24 miles of waterfront including three lovely beaches and a network of inlets and wetlands so it’s understandable why so many sailors from all over the world visit, whether that be for the extreme Clipper Round-the-World Race or quiet creek crawling.
Gosport has become the largest yachting centre on the South Coast with direct access to The Solent and is only 90 minutes from London. It has over 5,000 licensed yachts and motorboats, plus three marinas with 1,400 berths between them. There are also sailing schools, yacht charters and sailing clubs that welcome novices and public slipways where you can launch your own boat. If you want information on services and facilities for yachtsmen head over to Gosport Marine Scene.
