I live in Warsash, well like half a mile away.
I think there is a sailing club just down the road at Hamble, or about 2 mile away there is one in a place called Hill Head, quite a well to do one so i left many years ago. Not so sure about the actual Solent Uni though.
Warsash is a nice place, especially the maritime academy. Quite a few pubs too and is stupidly easy to access Southampton/Portsmouth too. I generally had the impression the marine guys just got drunk most nights in their accommodation but please correct me if i am wrong.
