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!

Spring is here, the weather is warmer and the evenings are lighter for longer! That can only mean one thing - Thursdays Afloat! Starting around 4.30pm or whenever you can get to us, these sessions are for our young sailors to get out on the water and enjoy fun and games organised by our instructors, with safety cover always afloat! If your youngster can tack and gybe then they can come along and join in the fun, boost their confidence and make new friends for the future! These sessions are free to club members, and club boats can be hired at the usual ratres. We come off the water at dusk.
