HISC Youth are on their travels . . .
Feva Nationals – Weymouth
HISC win club trophy – again!
Thirty HISC members took part in the RS Feva National Championships at the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy over the May bank holiday weekend.
106 boats completed a qualification series of six races the fleet was then split into Gold and Silver fleets for 5 further races. For some members this was their first experience of a national event. Weymouth provided fantastic facilities, plenty of sunshine and a range of wind conditions.
HISC walked away the overall club trophy which is awarded for the top 3 scoring boats from the same club. HISC have won this trophy very year since it was first awarded in 2007.
There was a range of results in both fleets with HISC having 7 boats in the top 25 of the gold fleets which shows what a great standard our young sailors are achieving. Hayling pretty much cleaned up on the additional trophies. Well done to all everyone who took part.

RS Tera Nationals - Cardiff Bay Yacht Club
Twenty two HISC members took part in the RS Tera National Championship at Cardiff Bay Yacht Club on 1st-3rd June.
Conditions were tough with very light, oscillating wind on an enclosed, shifty bit of water. However over the 3 days the Race Committee did a great job; the Pros and Sports completed 10 races and the Regatta 15 races all with 2 discards.
For many members this was their first experience of a National Event.
There was a big range of results in all fleets with 13 competing in the Sports, 7 in the Pros and 2 in the Regatta.
Top 10 result in Pros:

Well done to everyone who took part. There is certainly plenty of talent coming up through a strong HISC fleet of Teras ...
