What we're about

Brussels International Sailing Club (BISC) vzw is about sailing, as simple as that! We are not a formal or commercial club, nor are we all expert sailors. What everyone in the club has in common is that we enjoy messing about in or with boats. That can mean small boat sailing in Holland on summer Sundays or longer small-group cruises, also in Holland, the Channel or further afield. The Club is registered in Belgium and a member of WWSV (https://www.wwsv.be/) (Wind & Watersport Vlaanderen), through which members are covered by liability insurance and from which we receive guidance on conformity to administration and rules in Belgium. More information on the insurance can be found here (https://www.brusselsinternationalsailingclub.be/about/wwsv-insurance/).

As a small club we encourage every member to organise some activity, it can be anything as long as it is connected to sailing in some way. As well as sailing activities we have educational evenings where we get someone to talk about a recent trip,. In the past we have visited the bridge on a cross-channel ferry, we have even practised getting into a life-raft in a swimming pool (it can be difficult)!

Plus there are informal socials, dinners, slide evenings, perhaps the odd quiz or two. You don’t have to be sailors yourselves, as long as you are willing to learn. Every year we inspire a few people to take things further and start taking courses under the British RYA (Royal Yachting Association).

Membership of the club is open to all who are interested in and enjoy sailing. More information can be found on our website: http://www.brusselsinternationalsailingclub.be

To take part in most of our events you have to be a paid up member of the club for insurance purposes. More information on fees and dates can be found here (https://www.brusselsinternationalsailingclub.be/join-bisc/)
