Highcliffe Sailing Club is located at the prime coastal location of Mudeford Quay allowing the club to offer sailing in the sheltered waters of Christchurch harbour and open water sailing in Christchurch Bay..
This makes it an ideal club for sailors of all abilities and aspirations. The club has a friendly and informal atmosphere.
It is predominantly a family club with members of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. All members are expected to help with the running of the club, It's a good way to meet people and it's fun to be involved.

WHAT'S ON - THE WATER
Only 2 chances left to sail with HSC this year, hope it warms up a little bit, twas too cold for the Wednesday sailors today, who chose the warmth of the Noisy Lobster over spending the morning competing with the wind galloping across the harbour.
23rd Dec Sun 10:30 Harbour Frostbite series # 7 & 8 H/W 09:25 - 1.7
26th Dec Wed 10:30 Boxing Day Sail
Don't forget the fabulous Icicle Open Series starts on 6th January 2019.
We nearly have a full race team lined up for the Icicle Open, however we are looking for an Assistant Race Officer to help the our Race Officer(s) run the series - we have the cold, wet, water based duties covered (thanks Melanie and Michael) we just need someone to blow some hooters and hoist some flags. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. It is great fun and there is a hot beverage in it for you :-)

MEMBERS ON TOUR
Our Aero sailors have been playing away again at Lymington Town Sailing Club and like their previous visit, were delighted to find themselves once more treated to 35knots gusts. Unlike their previous visit, however, one of them spent the morning in Lymington Minor Injuries Unit and came home with 6 stitches.........
