RS Feva at HISC
The popularity of RS Fevas at HISC has been created by a varied and continuous programme of training and racing.

At HISC we have a large and active fleet, and we aim to provide a fun and varied programme for all abilities of youth sailor, from the back of the fleet to the world champion.
Youth Race Week and Chichester Harbour Race Week are key fixtures for the RS Feva with usually 40+ boats attending.
These events are sailed by all combinations – boy, girl and mixed teams as well as parent and child. Even novice lady teams love it, as it is so easy to handle! RS Fevas can be rented from the club so anyone can have a go anytime.
Parent and child combinations are very common in this fleet, with sprint style racing, to the "Mud Larks" sailors who are not yet racing but building confidence on west mud. "Family Fun Week" a popular holiday in August. Check your club calendar for the dates.
This years motto for the youth is Saturdays are "Fun Days" and Sunday are "Race days" Remember the more fun your child had the more likely they are to get out on the water.
The Fevas join in the youth racing on Sunday, racing is at 11.00am with a youth briefing beforehand, in or outside the training rooms. The racing is sprint style, three windward, leeward races.
Every month is a new series of three weekends. Parent and child combinations are aloud. Once a month is a Pennant weekend with three races on the Saturday and Sunday open meeting style.
