Youth Brainstorm Meeting

Youth Brainstorm...Due to the weather forecast for Saturday, which will make the club very empty this weekend, we have decided to move the Youth Brainstorm to Nov 4th at 5pm (just before bonfire night)....This will give you all a little more time to get your thinking caps on.

Winter Lay Up

We are on schedule for the Winter Lay Up programme, starting 16th October. Please follow any instructions by the Marine Team, they are looking after your safety.

If you arrive at the club to find the car park closed, please park on the causeway and walk to the club house following the sea wall.

The main lifting takes place on the North Beach and the tractor follows the concrete road past the shed and the chandlery towards the car park. Please take care in these areas and if you see or hear the tractor approaching keep well clear.

If you are walking dogs please ensure they are on a lead at all times.

Thank you very much for your cooperation in advance.

Removal of Illegally parked Kayaks

Illegally parked Kayaks and some with stickers which aren't secured to boats, will be removed to the sin bin at the end of October.

New Pontoon set for October

Work has started on the pontoon. Please help us by being aware that we have heavy plant machinery on site. Please also keep well away from the area and unsure that children aren't climbing on any of the equipment or parts.

The new structure will consist of a 34-meter walkway that will be joined to a bridge that is 17 meters long and will sit on a floating hammer head.

The hammer head will be 10 meters further north than the old pontoon which will enable it to float at most stages of tide. The barrier alongside the walkway and the bridge are 175 cm high which will enable the structure to be very safe.

The walkways and bridge at 1.5 m wide which will allow ease of movement for trollies up and down.

We are looking to keep disruption to a minimum, and will keep you informed as the project progresses.

This has been a big project for our Club, and only possible through contribution of time and talents by members and staff, to whom I offer my grateful thanks. We really need this pontoon, and I am delighted that we are now able to press ahead with it.

Exciting Addition to HISC Hire Fleet

You may have noticed the arrival of some shiny 2000 dinghies in the boat park, three in fact. These are the latest addition to our hire fleet to replace the Visions which have reached the end of their useful life.

At HISC we currently don't have a two-person entry level racing boat in our pathway, so the 2000 will 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.

There are a number of 2000s already in the club, so we plan to build a racing fleet with the class, and those hiring the club boats can participate in the class racing when this is established.

The 2000s are ready to go sailing now - along with the rest of our hire fleet, so if you are interested in hiring a boat please contact the Office.

Save us to your contacts

Please can we ask you to save our email addresses to your email contacts . . . This will ensure that any correspondence from the office gets through to you and doesn’t end up on your spam/junk folder.
