RS Elite Keelboat at HISC

During the course of this summer a number of members have been asking if one-design keelboat racing will ever happen again at HISC. Following much consultation and discussion over the last few weeks, a group of members have signed up for a serious campaign to achieve the goal of a racing fleet of RS Elites based at HISC . . .

Not a quick process and not for the fainthearted but we believe we have what it takes, that there is sufficient enthusiasm, and a big enough pool of sailors – the time is right.

The HISC RS Elite Fleet for 2015 has now reached double figures:

Andy Partington & Gareth Edwards 6 Duel

Paul & Caroline Fisk 11 Legs Eleven

Mark Allerston & Roddy Bowerman12 Escapade

Mark & Lisa Pollington 20 No Riff Raff

Alasdair McLeod 29 Galadrial

Mike Dawe 43 Trigger's Broom

Ossie Stewart & Rob Cruikshank 67 More T Vicar

Mike & Caroline Mcintyre & Simon Childs 76 Foudafafa

Dave & Jill Hitchcock 84 Kiss

Nick & Kate Peters 92 No More Toys

For more information please get in touch with one of the 'Elite Ambassadors' – Nick Peters, Roddy Bowerman, Mark Allerston, Ossie Stewart, Mike McIntyre or Paul Fisk – who will be more than happy to hear your thoughts and talk through the plans. Not only can their contact details be found in the club handbook, they themselves are often to be found in the club bar.
