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.

Some older pictures of club boats

merganser01

I think this was taken by Bob Parris. It is HSC club boat Merganser on the hard, probably for attention to some problem at the masthead. My guess is that it was taken at Bradwell on Sea during the 1970's.

meander01

I think this was also taken by Bob Parris. It is HSC club boat Meander, demonstrating HSC sailing techniques - boat appears to be over reefed for conditions - main oversheeted, jib right out - crew sitting on wrong side of boat - even so we manage somehow and we actually sail our boats further than most people do!
