Hayling Ferry Sailing Club is a small, friendly club, superbly located at the western tip of Hayling Island. From our well equipped club house, our fleet of catamarans and monohulls enjoys some of the best sailing in the Solent and the south coast of England.
New members are always welcome whether you own a boat or not.
Hayling Ferry Sailing Club have been chosen to host the 2017 F18 UK National Championships which will be held over the August bank holiday weekend from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th August.
Planning is well under way for this prestigious event and we look forward to welcoming all competitors to our club.
Many thanks to all members who have volunteered to help.
Following a successful week last year, Woody (Paul Lingwood) is organising another family camping week. Email Paul at email@example.com for more details.
Good news! We have been given the 2pm slot on Saturday 20th August which means we have 40 places available for HFSC members, friends and family to visit the "Tech Deck" at the Land Rover BAR headquarters in Portsmouth. So far places have been reserved as follows:
We have had some epic days out on the water this year - last Sunday was almost perfect, with a steady Sea Breeze over a flat sea and wall to wall sunshine - fantastic! It makes me wonder why there are so many cobwebs growing between some of the boats in the compound...
This coming Sunday it's time for our next event, we have 3-4 SW and Sunshine forecast at the moment so unless you are out of the country or otherwise indisposed, come down to the club and sail with us, or head out on your own, making the most of our fantastic location.
We are forecast reasonable South Westerlies on Sunday and the weather isn't looking too bad. We'll run a Sea Fronts Race on Sunday!
This usually involves a blast in front of Hayling and Southsea beaches. We'll determine the marks on the day according to the wind direction.
Please let me know if you are planning to come - or if you are looking for a Helm / Crew and we'll see if we can pair you up - there are some Crews already available!
Everyone welcome as usual!
The sun shone (some of the time), the wind blew, the band played, and a great weekend was had by all!
Thanks to all club members and others who put in so much hard work to make both the race and the Band on the Beach a resounding success.
