Social Sailing

A group of HISC members gather under the banner of HISC Social Sailing on prearranged dates and sail off to various destinations, dine out, have over-night stops sometimes and then return.

Any member of HISC can join. This Cruising Fleet welcomes those lucky HISC members who are able to sail during mid-week. At this time, the waters and Marinas are not so congested or busy and usually everything is much more peaceful and relaxed.

At the beginning and end of the season, short day-trips are made around Chichester Harbour, supporting the local sailing clubs.

During the summer, longer sails are enjoyed as far afield as Poole Harbour. Visits to other, prestigious Sailing Clubs are arranged and many an interesting Pub walk/beach BBQ is planned.

You don't have to have a boat as the boat owners are usually only too happy to take on board spare crews. For cruises in the harbour, dinghies are very welcome to come and all sail together.

For 2020 there is an Annual Subscription of £5 per person, payable at the next event to the Captain or the Treasurer.

Boat owners’ non-member guests are welcome to attend free-of-charge but should be signed in at the Office.

Reminders, alterations and other information about these events will be sent via the weekly HISC Newsletter.
