The Sailing Club

Dauntsey's School Sailing Club sails and maintains the Jolie Brise under the command of full-time skipper, Toby Marris, and first mate, Adam Seager. During the spring, summer and half-term holidays Jolie Brise cruises to almost anywhere in Europe; Spain, Portugal, Iceland, Norway and the Shetland Islands to name but a few. She often takes part in the Tall Ships' races, and she annually competes in the Round the Island Race as well.

Membership costs £15 per term and cruises cost extra depending on cruise length and travel costs to, and from, the boat. There are also Old Dauntseian and Associate Members (many of whom are parents of pupils at school) who are invited to sail on the boat from time to time.

During the winter months there are working parties both at School and on the boat in the Hamble to help maintain her in good condition.

The Sailing Club is completely voluntary and is open to all pupils at Dauntsey's from Year 10 upwards.

Pupil members of the Sailing Club who have left Dauntsey's are encouraged to re-join, and a good proportion always do. People who have chartered Jolie Brise very often join the Sailing Club as Associate Members.

If you would like to become a pupil or associate member, are interested in chartering Jolie Brise, or feel you can help the club in any way, please contact:
