"Who's Flying At Hayling?!"

Hayling Island Sailing Club is proud to welcome the Flying Fifteen fleet for their National Championships from 7th to 10th July. The event was previously scheduled for 2020, but you know what happened... Nevertheless, we rise again and meet at one of the best established bases for the Flying Fifteen fleet in the UK - possibly the world!

HISC has been home to Uffa Fox's best creation since the Fifties and has close to 20 active boats at the club.

This year we can welcome current and former national and world champions; club heroes; and the usual suspects of goodtimers and oldtimers.

Leading the pack we have:

There are so many more great sailors I could list. Honourable mentions must go to our hotshot visitors: Shane McCarthy and Adam Froggart from Ireland; and Campbell Alexander and Ralph Thomas from South Africa. Plus imports from other classes: 505 legend Terry Scutcher and GP14 master Andy Tunnicliffe.

Finally, gratitude expressed to those pledging support for this event: UK Global Insurance; Pinnell & Bax; Hyde Sails; Goacher Sails; Ovington Boats; and Raymarine.

A warm Sandy Point welcome to everyone from Hayling Island Sailing Club!
