5 Great Reasons to Join:

1. A Friendly Club

H(B)SC is renowned as a friendly club. Prospective members comment on how welcome they and their families have been made on visiting the club and how this continues when they become members. Most of our membership is through recommendation from existing members. There is always someone to ask for advice and to chat about any aspect of sailing or just to socialise. If you are thinking of sailing, but not yet committed? Come along for a trial session or to one of our open days.or just come to the club to chat with members at the club house over a pint, to get feel of the club. You will be amazed at how pleasurable, exciting and relaxing it is to be a member.

2. What a Location

Our location on Lawling Creek is ideally situated within easy reach of the major towns of Essex but in a beautiful quiet backwater whilst providing easy access to the wide open waters of the Blackwater, its islands and for the more adventurous, to the North Sea and the continent.

3. Superb sailing

Our beautiful location and friendly membership provide a unique sailing experience for racing, cruising or social sailing whether you have a dinghy or cruiser.

4. Vibrant Social!

We have a vibrant social programme throughout the year including our fabled Regatta Week in August with fun and sailing action for all the family. There are, party nights suppers and BBQs. The well stocked bar with local Dengie real ales is available for that quiet pint overlooking the beautiful Blackwater or after a hectic sail. The Galley beckons you with scrumptious home made hot food and drinks. For our family members, with younger ones and older children, there is plenty to do in a friendly 'feel at home' environment.
