Nationals now Cancelled due to Covid-19 Measures

As our members are all aware it was hoped that by moving the National Championship date to late October we would at least be able to salvage this one event.  With the current circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 protection and recovery measures, the club has informed us that the event can no longer go ahead.  Whilst it is unfortunate that we cannot hold our National Championship we recognise that this is a positive action being taken early as the club gets to grip with the management of operations under Covid-19 recovery measures. A full statement from HISC follows

"After long consideration, the General Committee of HISC have decided with great regret to cancel all the Open events that are scheduled to take place at the club during September and October 2020. Balancing the risks and benefits to our members of opening up the club to visiting fleets during the Coronavirus pandemic, the club has concluded that while some events are lower risk than others, and we have the option of cancelling events at the last minute, it is more considerate to provide clarity to everyone at this stage so that classes can consider alternative arrangements if they choose, and the staff and elected members at HISC can focus on returning the club to full service for our members in a Covid safe and compliant manner.

The club will be working over the next few months to identify out what arrangements we must implement in order to safely and reliably deliver the events and championships scheduled for 2021, should we still be operating under Coronavirus restrictions, and look forward to working with classes to ensure that we will meet the requirements of your members.

Our events team will be in touch with the organisers of all Open events for 2021 shortly to begin this planning process so that we can welcome everyone back to HISC for the 2021 season and onwards.

Many thanks


The association is currently in the planning process for a full calendar of events, including championships, for 2021; please see the fixture list for more details.  We will be updating as regularly as we can and will continue to operate within the given guidelines.
