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!

Now the holidays are here there's plenty to do at your sailing club!

Tuesday morning, usually Women on the Water,  becomes family sailing from 10am until lunchtime.  There will be a safety boat on the water, but these are not instructed sessions.  We may organise games if there is interest.  We will be looking for volunteers to run the galley on a drinks and sweets only basis.

Tuesday evening sailing continues every Tuesday except for the last week of August.  We start at 5 .00pm and carry on until dusk.  Instructors are on hand to give advice and help you improve your sailing, alternatively you are welcome to come and just enjoy an evening cruise.

The Summer Sprints series starts this Wednesday 30th and runs for five weeks up to and including the 27th August.  The Summer Sprints is a series of short races for all novice sailors aged under 16.  There are two races every afternoon, with a brieifng beforehand, advice on how to rig for the conditions, coaching on the water and short, individual debriefs for those who want them.  The first race will start at 2.30 prompt.  Volunteers to run races and drive safety boats very much appreciated.  Galley run on a volunteer sign up basis.

For adults the Wednesday evening Twilight Series carries on until the end of August.  Racing starts at 7.00pm with the bar open afterwards for post sailing discussion!

Boat Camp takes place from the 25th to the 28th August, with family camping by the lake and fun sailing based activities every day for the youngsters.  This is now nearly full, so if you haven't booked email now on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Charge is £20.00 per day per child, option to book cooked lunch, usual boat hire charges apply.  Camping is free and children will be supervised from 9.30am until 4.30pm.

RYA Stage 4: those wishing to take this course in improving double handed sailing should email me with the dates they are available in the weeks before Boat Camp and I will arrange a course to suit the majority.  If you want to do this, do it now!

Complete beginners:  if your child is aged between 8 and 16 and wants to learn to sail I may be able to arrange some Tuesday and Thursday night introduction sessions.  Please email me if interested.  Parents will be expected to stay on site and help with launching etc.

Please remember, these activities are for Members Only!

Now the holidays have started Women on the Water merges into Family Sailing, so everyone has the opportunity to get out and enjoy being on the water.  We start at 10.00am and aim to finish at 1pm.  We will be running a rota for safety duty and also the galley.  Please note, these are general sailing sessions and instruction is not necessarily provided.  The sessions are for members only and boats are for hire at the usual rates.

Tuesday evening sailing continues throughout the summer, apart from Boat Camp week, and starts at around 5pm until about 7.30pm, until it starts to get dark.

Boat Camp is an opportunity for families to camp at the club with kids enjoying supervised sailing every day, either racing, learning sailing skills or playing instructor led games.  It's the best way to make good friends at the club, have fun and then chill together in the evenings.  This year we start on Monday 25th and finish on Thursday 28th. 

Shore side activities include model boat building, knot tying competitions, fancy dress day, rules and tuning sessions, arts and crafts.

Places are limited, and right now we are about half full.  If you haven't sent me a form you don't yet have a place.  If you want to book, better hurry and email me on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Camping is free, there is a charge for children (who can be left for the day) of £20 per day, plus any boat hire.  Preference towards those staying for the week.
