Getting to know you..
To help you get to know us a little better, we have asked some of our skippers the following:
Why do you love sailing?
What is your dream destination?
Which famous person would you like to spend a weekend sailing with?
I'm Stephen Passmore, Engineer, Adventurer & also the current Commodore at THYC
I love sailing because quite simply I love being on the water
My dream destination would be sailing the North West Passage
Cruiser racers start in size from "Boysie" a Hunter Sonata 23 foot which despite it's size is a very competitive boat easy to sail with 4 crew and fun. (right)

Don't beleive that the sun always shines on Hartlepool. We have our fair share of windy and wet days when sailing can be a challenge.
