Welcome to the Hunts Sailing Club Website
Hunts Sailing Club, located at St Ives, close to Huntingdon, Cambridge, and Peterborough in NW Cambridgeshire, provides class racing for Solo, Enterprise, Phantom, and Laser Class dinghies, as well as an all comers handicap. We are a very family oriented club, with youth sail training, and several multi-generation families, with father vs son, daughter and wives competition in and across classes! More details on the above, under the "Sailing" heading. Please have a look round our web site, and come and visit us for real one day!
Twilight series Wednesday evenings
Wednesday Night is Race Night
Why not break up the week, leave the stress of work or college and join in with the twilight race on a Wednesday night.
The Wednesday race is typically a more relaxed and social affair than the weekend racing. With just one race, there is time afterwards to enjoy the social side of racing, get a drink from the bar and watch the sun go down over the lake, swapping “if only” stories from the race!
The race format is usually a pursuit race, which normally mean those less experienced in slower boats go off first, which gives a less crowded start line to worry about, then sailing as fast as you can trying to keep the faster boats from catching you up. Give it a try you will really enjoy it!
For those who attended the training sessions this is a great opportunity in a more relaxed race atmosphere to put all that training to the test.
Hope to see you on the water….
