Youth Pathway

We are a family sailing club that organises events and activities for all youth members from toddlers through to 21 year olds. It can sometimes be difficult to figure out where your child fits in, but somewhere along the HISC Youth Pathway is a fun activity, training group or racing event that will work for you and your family. The emphasis throughout is for kids to have fun on the water, engage with other children and make friends, as well as learn to sail and continue to improve their skills in our amazing and unique environment.

HISC Seals is a chance for complete novices and younger members (10 and under) to meet new friends and have fun.


A great next step for those young sailors coming from Seals and May half term training week, to leave the Lagoon and head to West Mud for some fun!

Red Ribbon Training Club & 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.
