The RYA Scotland Champion of Champions Regatta was run at HSC over the weekend of 19/20 October. There were 23 boats and 35 sailors from all over Scotland and the north of England, and the weather played the game - more or less. It was dry, sunny on the Sunday, and the northerly breeze held out though with enough twists and turns to cause stress for organisers and competitors alike!


The National Sonata Class made a welcome return to HSC for their 2019 Class Championship. Racing took place over four days (20 - 23 June), and the scheduled 12 races were achieved in conditions that were occasionally quite challenging. The Class Association and the club were fortunate to have the support of Novia Financial as headline sponsors for the event. Novia is an online investment platform that provides Advisers with the investment technology to enable them to efficiently manage their clients' investments across a range of investment wrappers.  Visit to find out more about intelligent wealth management with Novia.

The runaway winner was Steve Goacher in "Eric the Boat". The tussle for second place was narrowly won by Ross McNish ("Old School"), one point ahead of Brian Wiseman's "Virtuoso" which was helmed by Guy Neville.
