Start Sailing

sailing group

Aimed at beginners these courses provide an introduction to the sport of sailing.

By the end of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge enabling them to get afloat under supervision.
ADDED BONUS! Enjoy a sailing experience on our reservoir - you will be surprised how nice it is!

If you become a member there is support available to get you on the water such as Back on the Water, Coaching and Ladies Fun days.

Tuesday Try Sailing

At HSC we offer Try Sailing Sessions for families or individuals on Tuesday evenings from May through to July.

These sessions are designed to give you a taster of what sailing is all about. You will learn to rig the boats, go for a sail with an instructor on board, have a go at helming yourself, then return to the shore to de-rig.

The session starts at 1830 and finishes just around 2000.

Fee is £20 per boat. Maximum of three participants in the boat at any one time. (For families of four we can swap people out half way through). Children should be 5 or over.

Back On The Water

This maybe the course for you....

So it's the beginning of the new season. Now is the time to get back on the water and GO sailing. This course acts as a refresher for those who feel they may need a hand, or who want to brush up their skills.

This year we will offer three courses running on Thursday evenings 18:00 (rigged and ready) to 20:00. Each course will last for three weeks. We will tailor each course to the participants but we should be able to offer on each course:

a) Basic sailing skills ( rigging, tacking and gybing)
b) Better sailing skills (coming alongside a pontoon, Man over Board, slow boat handling skills)
c) Basics of racing.

We finish each session just in time for you to enjoy a beer (glass of wine) and the legendary Thursday evening meal.

Ideally you will use your own boat, but if you want to book a Club boat you can now do that on-line as well. Half price hire for BoW.
