|The Hostellers Sailing Club offers day sailing and dinghy cruising during the summer and country walking during the winter. The HSC suits all levels of sailing experience including complete beginners. Most members live in London/ Essex/ Southeast England, we also now have a few in Devon. We keep a club owned Wayfarer dinghy on a mooring at Paglesham on the River Roach in Essex.|
We still have our club owned Wayfarer sailing dinghy on our mooring on the Roach estuary at Paglesham in Essex. The boat is available for our members use any time a crew is available to go sailing. Mark S is co-ordinating our sailing, contact him for crew arrangements. Prospective new members are always welcome - contact Mark or John if you would like a sail.
Saturday 4th November - Laying up our club boat
It will be time to get our club owned Wayfarer dinghy laid up for the winter, so help needed with getting the boat ashore and giving it a clean up. We will break the work with lunch at the Plough and Sail. HW is at 12:20 GMT. Contact Mark S. if you can help, all welcome.

The 2017 AGM of the Hostellers Sailing Club will be held on Saturday 2nd December starting at 15:00. As last year we are grateful to one of our members for hosting our AGM at his house in Hertfordshire - full details available through our committee.
