HISC RS200 Fleet . . .
Hayling Island Sailing Club hosts the best RS200 fleet
in the country, with approaching fifty RS200s registered at the
club and won top club at the 2011 Nationals. It's not just the
standard of competition that makes HISC stand out, it's the depth.
Whoever you are, Olympian, or just learning to sail, the HISC RS200
fleet can provide fun, close racing for you.
HISC is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a
state of the art club house. Sailing is achievable almost all of
the time, either in the sheltered waters of the Harbour, or out in
Hayling Bay. But, if the sailing is off, the social will certainly
be on. The club is a great location for just meeting friends at the
bar or spending time with the family.

HISC RS200 Open: 29/30th June
This year the RS200 circuit returns to HISC! This is your
opportunity to experience the thrills of big fleet racing without
having to leave the comfort of Hayling. However, it's also our
chance to show potential new members what a large and friendly
fleet we have. I'll be going out of my way to show the class how
much we care about our open. On Friday evening we'll be running a
meet and greet with tidal charts and racing tips for the bay.
Saturday evening there will be a coaching seminar, cheap meal and
all followed by a wicked social.
Sandy Shell (unofficial world championships): Saturday 12th
October (club prize giving day for great social)
Need I say anything more?? Everyone surely knows this is THE
event and a great season close out.
Andrea's event, superbly run and superbly attended. Expect around
20 RS200s racing on 'sprint' courses lasting 15-20 minutes. Usually
4 or 5 races packed in with super quick turnarounds. This is just
the sort of high intensity racing you want on an October day; zero
messing around. Probably the best RS200 club racing in the country
and it's at your club; make the most of it!
Glyn Charles 11th May and Spring Sprints 12th May
I never knew Glyn, but judging by the epic summer pursuit race
that bears his name he must have been a great bloke. The proceeds
go to the John Merrick sailing trust (a great cause) and many of
the country's top sailors turn up for the fantastic pursuit around
the harbour. RS200 results will be extracted as used as a
non-discardable long distance race to go towards Sunday's
