HISC is composed of four key areas: Cruising, Racing, Social Activities, and Youth Sailing. Beyond the benefits to the members, Youth Sailing is a vital part of our community outreach program. It demonstrates to our friends and neighbors that sailing is for everyone. The HISC youth sailing program is taught by volunteer club members, who are certified by U.S Sailing. The club owns a fleet of small sailboats: Optimists, O'pen Skiffs, and Sunfish. These boats are stored at Quiet Waters Park for use twice a year to train children aged 8 to 18 in the art of sailing.
Members can enroll any number of their children or grandchildren in youth sailing at no cost. Enrollment is offered first to club members, and then if space is still available, to the general public for a nominal fee of $75 per child. Since HISC family membership is only $150, most families prefer to join the club and enjoy all the benefits. We don't mind that they do!
Our club has offered a youth sailing program for over 30 years. We are proud to boast of a few members who, as children, started their sailing life in the HISC Youth Sailing program. For more information, click on this link:
