Join The Club

**We have a little bit of space in our 2019 sailing schedule. If you are interested in joining us this year please contact treasurer Mark to find out what days are available.**

We are the social club with the sailing problem!

Ever wish you had a place to go down by the bay, where you could enjoy evenings with your friends, and maybe learn to sail? We have just that! HBSC offers informal instruction every weekday evening starting around 5:30-6pm. When you join, simply pick a night that you wish to sail and then come down to the club on that evening. You will be paired up with an experienced skipper who will teach you everything you need to know to become a safe and competent sailor. Everyone learns at their own pace so lessons are planned according to your skill level. Once you become an experienced sailor you can achieve the status of skipper which gives you unlimited access to club facilities outside of regular sailing evenings and scheduled events.

The social side of HBSC is very active with regular events where you can watch the sunset while enjoing a meal by the waterfront. We have weekly gatherings in the summer months and our social team hosts large monthly events featuring live bands, great food, and a fun atmosphere.

If you are looking for something on the competitive side or just want to hone your sailing skills, we have a racing program with many regattas held throughout the season. No experience is necessary to come racing, it’s just like your regular sailing night except with a purpose!
