The annual prizegiving was held in the club on Saturday 2nd December and 60 members attended to help celebrate the successes of the winners.

The first of the 2017 Scottish Junior Travellers events was held at HSC on 26/27 August. With 30 Toppers, 20 Oppies and a couple of Fevas, this was a pretty noisy affair - particularly on the start line!

Young sailors from all over the UK converged on the town for the 420 Dinghy Class Championships organised by HSC. With some competitors arriving straight from the Junior Europeans event at Lake Garda, overall numbers were lower than when the class last visited the town in 2003 (won by Luke Patience), but the competition was absolutely top notch.

The 2017 event ran from 9 - 11 June at HSC. Despite wildly varying conditions, Race Officer Howard Morrison was able to complete 8 out of the 10 planned races, with both Friday's and Saturday's racing finishing in warm summer sunshine.

HSC was well represented in the honours list at CCC's Silvers Marine Scottish Series over the late May holiday weekend:

  • Winner of CYCA Class 4 and the Tarbert Shield for best performance in CYCA Handicap classes - "Enigma" - Howard Morrison
  • Winner of the Sigma 33 Class and the Anchor Hotel Trophy for best one-design class performance - "Mayrise" - James Miller
