Wayfarer at HISC

We are an enthusiastic and active cruising fleet, sailing both within the harbour and the Solent. We have fun activities including visits to other sailing clubs, pubs, anchorages, creeks, and cafes.

We also organise ‘Le Mans’ style racing off the beach, a sail around Hayling Island (under Langstone Bridge through Langstone Harbour returning via Sandy Point, and a sail to Bembridge with an accompanying HISC safety RIB

We have in the fleet the full range of Wayfarers models, from those built in the Sixties out of wood to the latest Mark 4 version.

The Class is well placed in the Boat Park. Our boats are sheltered from all wind directions and with concrete pathways to the launching ramp. The boat can be launched and recovered with the electric winches by one person.

There is a group of us who gather over breakfast at the club on most Sunday mornings – at about 10.00ish – to plan the day’s sailing. If you want to join us to sail in company, please do.

Our destination very much depends upon the weather and tide. We sail for fun and enjoyment and go together as a fleet. We embrace a wide range of experience, passing on knowledge, so please come and talk.

If you are interested in racing, the Wayfarer is a safe and forgiving boat in which to start.
