Welcome to HCYC sticky icon

Hertford County Yacht Club is a friendly club offering something for every member of the family from the casual sailor to the serious racing enthusiast. We are particularly keen to help those who have never sailed, or are long lapsed sailors to get back on the water - very much a 'grass roots' club.

We have members of all ages, who join in with both fleet and handicap racing, casual sailing and social events. We are an RYA accredited training centre and offer a range of excellent value courses to members.  

The club is based in the Lea Valley Park on a pleasant 25 acre lake at Stanstead Abbotts in Hertfordshire.

New members will receive a warm welcome. More information can found in How to Join, or just come along and meet us.

Come & Try Day: May 16th

If you are interested to find out whether sailing is for you, or to get a real feel for the club in action then we are holding a Come and Try Day on Saturday 16th May from 10:30.  Do come along. All ages and abilities welcome. We will have the Oppies out for younger sailors or Toppers for you to have a go in as well as the opportunity to sail with club members in a variety of dinghies.
