Who We Are

The Heart of England Offshore Cruising Association (HOEOCA) aims to promote and encourage all forms of offshore sailing (both cruising and racing) for people who live, primarily, in the West Midlands. We provide opportunities to participate in a variety of activities to enable members to improve all aspects of their sailing skills and knowledge.

The association was founded in 1993 by a number of ‘graduates’ of RYA shore based Day Skipper and Yachtmaster courses who wanted to continue both their sailing and social activities. The Club currently has around 150 members. We are based in Balsall Common, Warwickshire in the Heart of England, and mainly serve members who live in the surrounding areas.

We’re a friendly and sociable club and welcome new members at all levels of experience. From cruising and racing to training courses, guest speakers and social events, we provide our members with the chance to experience every element of offshore sailing.
