Second hugely successful season of HISC Get Racing Club

 HISC Racing ClubThe hugely successful initiative, which uses experienced club volunteers to mentor non-racing members and encourage them to learn new skills and have a go at informal racing, succeeded in transiting some of its members into main club racing and regatta events this year.

Taking full advantage of the mild autumnal weather, the first September Get Racing Club event bristled with experienced volunteer mentors in the form of Rear Commodore Racing Andy Partington together with Karen Partington, Debbie Darling and Gareth Edwards. Huge thanks to all who have volunteered to run GRC and put time in to running this great stepping stone to helping us all improve our sailing.” The Get Racing Club celebrated its achievements at the End of Season party at the club. In 2015 the HISC Get Racing club saw 252 sailors participate across the 12 events held from April to October, many helped by the best of the club racers, national, world and Olympic champions.
