Welcome to HOEOCA

Sociable Offshore Cruising and Racing for those living in the Heart of England  

We promote and encourage all forms of yacht sailing, from cruising to racing, in a variety of coastal and offshore sailing grounds, for people of 18 and over who live, primarily, in the West Midlands.

We offer opportunities for members to improve their sailing skills, both on and off the water, in an enjoyable and friendly way.

Beginners and anyone new to yacht sailing are particularly welcome. Do come along to a social evening or speaker night and find out more.
