HISC Hire Boat Fleet

If you would like to try out a different dinghy or enjoy sailing one of the following dinghies but don't want the commitment of buying your own - then hiring a dinghy is a great solution.

HISC has a permanent fleet of 30 dinghies that are available for hire by members.

The fleet consists of a range of boats suitable for beginners, children adults and families.

Recently the fleet added the Laser 2000 to provide a great choice for members new to racing, or maybe those who's skills are a little rusty and want to get back into sailing  - and they could be just the thing for beginners that want a boat they can learn in and progress into club racing.
