November 2017 Boating News

It was with a slightly heavy heart on a drizzly Thursday (the only sun free day in the whole of October) that we motored our boat “Le Ketchup” to Beale Park for winter storage. Believe me it was the brightest object on the river that day. She always makes us smile and has now […]

September 2017 Boating News

It seems ages since Barbara and I met to dream up an informative and chatty newsletter, in fact it was early July. So here we are almost two months later with eager fingers on the keys tapping out our late summer issue.

While mr. Hoile and myself strayed no further than Suffolk this summer for […]

July 2017 Boating News

The sunshine continues to make boating a very attractive pastime this season. Henley Royal Regatta went off splendidly with five days of record breaking rowing, temperatures to match, and an actual royal “rendez-vous” for our very own “Hero”. In the photo above she is getting ready for the outing.

Our good luck continued throughout […]

June 2017 Boating News

As the sun rises higher in the sky and we approach the summer solstice, our thoughts naturally turn to holidays. Maybe you like to enjoy England in the summer; I certainly do, but at the same time here I was last weekend on Brighton beach looking out to sea, thinking that maybe setting off […]

April 2017 Boating News

Boats appear to be back in fashion and sales are holding up well compared with this time last year. Perhaps it’s just the sunny start to the season, or a “devil may care” response to the World’s political turmoil. Either way, here at HSC the mood is positive, particularly as the late Easter has […]

March 2017 Boating News

As avid readers are aware February was an exciting month for me as I celebrated riverside nuptials with Steve Hoile. For our honeymoon we went to Morocco and enjoyed the last few days by the sea in Essaouira.

We stayed in a quirky hotel outside of the main town, which enabled us to walk along […]

December 2016 Boating News

As you can see, December’s newsletter was inspired by a delightful trip to the Lake District, where despite a dusting of snow on the hilltops, I still managed to go boating in the sunshine.

If you prefer the bright lights and an experienced skipper at the helm you might opt for a city break this […]

November 2016 Boating News

While enjoying with my usual Saturday morning latte the fascinating contents of the weekend’s FT, an article about the superyacht industry caught my attention. The journalist noted that “In 2015 the footloose super-rich spent just over €3bn on new superyacht commissions, almost 40 percent up on the figure from two years earlier. According to […]
