Try-A-Thing Event!

Try-A-Thing Event!

HSSC’s ‘Try-A-Thing’ event is a fun triathlon-type event for everyone.

Be as competitive as you like, or not, as the case may be. Sail like Ainsley, Ride like Wiggins, Run like Bolt, but at all times Have Fun!

Saturday June 21st, 12.00 pm


Kindly organised by HSSC’s Marc Carney, our Try-A-Thing comprises three sections:

  • Any-Thing on the Water: from Hythe to Seabrook but with no motors
  • Any-Thing on the Road: no motors again, i.e. mountain or road bikes
  • Any-Thing on the Run: no drugs ūüėČ

The water section is 1.5 miles long and participants may sail, windsurf, kitesurf, kayak, swim, SUP, or anything else without an motor! The ride has two routes, 10.5 miles (16.25 k) for road bikes, or 7.8 miles (12.6 k) for off road bikes. The run is just 0.6 miles (1 k).

This is an HSSC fundraising event. All proceeds will go to the future development of the Clubhouse. All persons entering do so at their own risk and all necessary precautions should be taken to ensure ones own safety and that of others and their own equipment during the event.

  1. Just wondering what the arrangements will be at the transition points – potentially quite a few water craft being left on the beach at Seabrook – what security and retrieval arrangements will there be? Ditto for the bikes being left at the cycle-to-run transition.

    • There will be temp compounds set up for your kit with club volunteers keeping an eye on it whilst you are away, however this is not high security, so please make any other arrangements as you feel necessary. May be a good idea to have someone to help you recover your board/boat etc and suggest a simple padlock on you bike – but don’t forget the key !
