The HISC Youth Pathway 2019

We are a family club that organises events and activities for all youth members from toddlers through to 18-year olds

We offer a Pathway for Youth (shown in the diagram) which is full of fun groups and clubs to help enable them to have fun on the water, engage with other kids and make friends, as well as learning to sail and continuing to improve their skills, in our amazing and unique environment

In addition to our Pathway, we also have a full Fun Calendar with events for all the family to enjoy together, so whatever your children’s ages there is something for everyone!


HISC Seals is a chance for complete novices and younger members (10 and under) to meet new friends and have fun and perhaps take part in some simple games on the water in the safety of the lagoon – 4 sessions are run, from end of June to early September.

No child is too small to start in the lagoon, even if it is just having a paddle.

Youth Sailing Saturdays

On set Saturdays from May to September we will be running 2-3 hour sessions of seamanship skills, click for more information.

With the aid of qualified coaches and experienced parents, children will practice a selection of skills both on and off the water while working through cards to help guide them.

Red Ribbon Training Club and Red Ribbon Regatta

This group, organised by the Youth Committee and Melvyn Cooper Sailing was developed to help build children's confidence and to make the transition from the lagoon to West Mud a little easier

Two training weeks available for 2019, check out which is best for your child, click for more information . . .
