In addition to racing, the HSC has activities for recreational sailors, like picnics, scavenger hunts and a variety of other events on the water. “The fact is, we’re passionate about sailing and we enjoy sharing those skills with others who are interested in the sport.”; says Angelo Lovisa, Commodore of HSC.  ”We are all about fun and safety on the water. Come out and join us for one of our family fun days!”
