Thinking of joining Hill Head Sailing Club? <p>Take a look around our website, call into the club and have a chat with us. The calendar shows events at the club you are welcome to pop in for a chat. For general membership enquiries contact the Membership Secretary.   We hold prospective new members' evening on the fourth Friday of the month from 18:30 hrs where you are invited to come and chat and look round.

HHSC is run by the membership which creates a warm and friendly atmosphere, good for families and individuals alike. It's important that we work together to support the club in all its activities. You may enjoy racing, so race officer duties or manning a safety boat could be the area you would like to assist in, or perhaps ground and equipment maintenance, bar work, or catering. Without this support the club would not be able to run such a wide range of sailing and training activities.

If you or your family are not sailors, but wish to learn, we regularly run RYA training days to get you out on the water quickly and safely. Go to our training tab to see what we do.
