HISC Sailors currently in RYA/IOCA Squads
Congratulations to the 30 HISC sailors offered places in RYA/IOCA Optimist Squads this Winter . . . HISC is one of the largest clubs in the country in terms of Optimist Squad representation . . .
Jack Lucas-Clements is our first Optimist National Squad representative for a few years while nearly a quarter of the Optimist Intermediate squad are HISC sailors. A substantial portion of both the South and South East RYA Zone Squads are HISC sailors.
Many of these sailors are signed up for the HISC Optimist Squad which kicked off a few weeks ago with over 30 Optimists out.
We also say goodbye to a few sailors that have moved on to Fevas, 4.7s, 420s and 29ers this winter - good luck to you all in your new classes.
