HSC provides storage for 130 cruisers up to 35ft in length and 5’3” draft, with electricity and water connections at frequent intervals. There is storage for about 60 dinghies in the dinghy pound.

A wide slipway allows for convenient launching and recovery of dinghies. During high tide the slip is also used for the recovery and launching of cruisers.

The pontoon allows for the temporary mooring of cruisers and is also suitable for launching tenders. As the pontoon dries at low water it is only accessible to cruisers from about 1 hour before high water to about 3 hours after.

HSC is a recognised RYA training establishment and offers a wide range of both shore based and on the water training courses for all ages from absolute beginners to yacht master.

The club has removed the joining fee this year and adopted an optional direct debit system to pay for Membership fees and now Mooring and Pound Fees over 10 months making getting onto the water more accessible and affordable for all!
