Secretary June Hutson talks about the Havering Sailing Club.

“The Havering Sailing Club was founded in the late 1950s by a group of teachers from Hullbridge. Their aim was to provide outdoor activities for schoolchildren, and in turn themselves, and the activity that became dominant was sailing.

“When the club’s lease at Hullbridge expired, it moved to Grangewaters, South Ockendon, before finally relocating to Stubbers in Upminster.

“Havering Sailing Club is a small, friendly, group which meets from March through to November.

“There are various club boats for members to use for a small fee.

Havering Sailing Club

Where: Stubbers Outdoor Pursuits Centre, Ockendon Road, Upminster

When: Saturdays during the March to November period, from 12pm to 6pm

Secretary: June Hutson

Contact: Call June Hutson on 01375 846153 or visit www.haveringsailingclub.org.uk

“Club members own many different classes of dinghy, so the handicap principle is applied to races, enabling each boat to participate on equal terms.

“Generally four races are held each Saturday. There is also a rescue boat which is on the water all afternoon and buoyancy jackets and helmets are available for use.

“Two week “Come and try” sessions for new people thinking of joining the club are offered for a charge of £20 and if these people join they get £10 of that back.

“Currently the fees are £75 per adult for each eight-month sailing season, with a person under the age of 18 paying £35.”
