Exciting Addition to HISC Hire Fleet

You may have noticed the arrival of some shiny 2000 dinghies in the boat park, three in fact. These are the latest addition to our hire fleet to replace the Visions which have reached the end of their useful life

The 2000s have been purchased very carefully, they are in excellent condtion and represent great value for money. They are a superb training and base level racing boat with fleets around the harbour.

At HISC we currently don't have a two-person entry level racing boat in our pathway, so the 2000 will provide a great choice for members new to racing, or maybe those who's skills are a little rusty and want to get back into sailing  - and they could be just the thing for beginners that want a boat they can learn in and progress into club racing.

There are a number of 2000s already in the club, so we plan to build a racing fleet with the class, and those hiring the club boats can participate in the class racing when this is established.

We would like to invite all exisitng owners of 2000s and those that are interested in hiring a 2000 to an inaugural taster/race session on Sept 16, please advise the Office if you are interested in attending this event. More details to follow.

The 2000s are ready to go sailing now - along with the rest of our hire fleet, so if you are interested in hiring a boat please contact the Office.

New Pontoon set for September

Good news!  The GC is now ready to press ahead with the installation of a new pontoon and has placed an order with Docking Solutions. The pontoon has a 6 – 8 weeks lead time and as such we are looking to have it installed in September, including driving the two new piles.

The new structure will consist of a 34-meter walkway that will be joined to a bridge that is 17 meters long and will sit on a floating hammer head.

The hammer head will be 10 meters further north than the old pontoon which will enable it to float at most stages of tide. The barrier alongside the walkway and the bridge are 175 cm high which will enable the structure to be very safe.

The walkways and bridge at 1.5 m wide which will allow ease of movement for trollies up and down.

We are looking to keep disruption to a minimum, and will keep you informed as the project progresses.

This has been a big project for our Club, and only possible through contribution of time and talents by members and staff, to whom I offer my grateful thanks. We really need this pontoon, and I am delighted that we are now able to press ahead with it.
