Welcome to HCYC
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.
We offer the following memberships:
Family Member - full member with voting rights for two adults and their children under 26
Individual Member - full member with voting rights for one adult
Non-sailing Member (also known as 'social membership') - no voting rights and are not entitled to a dinghy park space
Family Friend - a top-up membership to enable an additional child to be added to a family membership.
Dinghy park spaces are available to full members.
For 2017 we are again offering a Short Term membership which lasts for 2 months. This enables you to sign up for a short time to try sailing to see how you get on, or to join one of our courses. If you then want to stay with us you can 'top-up' to a full membership. This covers a whole family.
Due to the voluntary nature of the club we do not offer individual memberships for children under 26. All children under 18 must be associated with a family membership and must be accompanied by a responsible adult at the club. This can be covered by the 'family friend' membership. Please contact us for more information as there are other conditions associated with this arrangement.
