Gosport Cruising Club Management Committee

Your Committee

Committee 2021


Commodore Steve Smedley Jackie and I joined GCC with young children and a 17 ft 2 berth weekend boat. The Club has allowed us to achieve our dreams Cruising the South Coast, French canals , trips to Paris via the Champagne region and 4 years in the South of France. We've had the good fortune to own Lady Brenade for close to 20 years now, a boat we could not have had if not for GCC. But when I ask myself what the Club has given us, yes fantastic moorings, craning out and wintering ashore for refits, rallies, evenings in our wonderful Club house.
But the biggest benefit we’ve had from our Club are the true friendships we developed over the last 27 years with our fellow Members
