Welcome to the RS Feva Section of the HISC Website
At HISC there are all kinds of RS Feva sailors, from family sailing and youth of all levels, from beginner to National squad level. RS Fevas can be rented from the club so anyone can have a go. The Feva youth have lots of friends and have fun, they can often be seen just hanging out together, when they are not on the water.
Fiona Pyke is the Feva Class Captain.
RS Feva racing
The Fevas join in the youth racing on Sunday, racing is at 11.00am with a youth briefing beforehand, in or outside the training rooms. The racing is sprint style, three windward, leeward races. Every month is a new series of three weekends. Parent and child combinations are aloud. Once a month is a Pennant weekend with three races on the Saturday and Sunday open meeting style. See the Youth Fixture List.
Youth Race Week
This open event is one of the premier events in the RS Feva Calendar, as it is a must for the new pairings cut their teeth as the quality of the racing is of a very high standard. We always have excellent race officers and a choice of inside and outside the harbor. This year promises to be full of fun off the water events and as usual the Youth ball.
Women on Water - WOW
Women on Water is now in it's fifth year at the club. This popular session runs mid week on social hours. You can be a complete beginner or a budding improver there is always something new to learn and sailing in the company or other women makes for a relaxed atmosphere. Also look out for "Ladies who Launch"
Parent and child combinations are very common in this fleet, with sprint style racing, to the "Mud Larks" sailors who are not yet racing but building confidence on west mud. "Family Fun Week" a popular holiday in August. Check your club calendar for the dates. This years motto for the youth is Saturdays are "Fun Days" and Sunday are "Race days" Remember the more fun your child had the more likely they are to get out on the water.
Feva Fun day
The Youth committee got together and they have some new fun activities planned for this year. Look out for the "Youth news" that comes out with the subscription letters. The Fevas have their very own "Fun day" Saturday 29th June, planned. All I need from you is ideas of what you want to do on your own special day. We want to make it so good that the other fleets will want to join in too. Please email me your suggestions [email protected]
Hayling Class Squad and Training
Beginner Feva sailors can start in "Youth Training Week," where they can get RYA certificates. There are also private coaches who can help adults and children improve their sailing technique. Phone the club for details. Details can also be found in the "HISC Training Brochure"
For the more experienced racing sailors, there is a five weekend winter "RS Feva Class Squad" this is an RS Feva class recognized regional squad. To be selected for this squad the sailors must show that they are committed to racing, and can attend all weekends available. The quality of coaching is very high and many successful international sailors have trained in this squad.
Lots to do . . .
There is always lots of things going on in the RS Feva class and it is always the boat of choice when there is fun stuff going. It should be a very exciting and fun being in the RS Feva class this year!
