Kirsty Brown

Vice Commodore & Board Member

Brought up in Strone I have always had an interest in the sea.  A number of years ago I started sailing as reserve crew for some of our flying fifteen club members which I enjoyed very much. 5 years ago Iain and I were very lucky to buy a Sadler 34

Whisper II, which we enjoy cruising around the west coast in and the odd race, although like all boats it enjoys spending our money! I enjoy helping out and attending HLSC events.

Scott Crossley

Secretary & Board Member

From a past life as a very serious mountain climber to the present day where Scott sails his Achilles 24 he has been a life long enthusiast of the great outdoors.  Scott races in the White Sails class and also often sails single-handed.  But don't be fooled he is also very organised and having recently retired he's got even more time to devote to his role as club secretary.  He's easily recognised, be sure to say hello.

Bill Aitchison

Sailing Secretary & Board Member

Famous for his well-chosen courses and precise instructions Bill has been sailing longer than most can recall.  His connections across the Clyde and beyond are invaluable.  From his Loch Long to his former boat Iota many will know Bill from on the water as well as the race box.

Jim Campbell

I was brought up in Sandbank and was a cadet member of the club in the seventies. At the time I also raced lasers and wayfarers. Work took me away from the area and I have only recently returned "home". I now own a Piper One Design, a locally built boat, and regularly race in the extremely competitive piper class at the club.


Sallie Condy

Board Member

I joined HLSC, along with my husband in 2009.  He and my two sons have raced in various classes including Flying Fifteens and White Sails. I am a cruiser and enjoy pottering about the Clyde on our Etap28i with Mike and our miniature schnauzer.  The skills I bring to the committee come from my work, supporting and advising voluntary sector organisations in Glasgow.  I am one of those sad people who like to know that all the paperwork is in order! It's me working behind the scenes of Webcollect and lots of the website. Email:
