Christmas lunch was a total smash. Al Fresco served up to a full house of happy members in a festive room full of cheer and atmosphere. Thank you to everyone who came down and decorated the clubhouse (despite the draughty conditions that day) and helped orgainse the event.
SAILING CALENDAR 2018

Its woolly hats at the ready, it is time to show what we are made of!

Alwyn Smith, long time member of HSC, mirror sailor, ex trustee and lovely, lovely man sadly passed away last week at the age of 94. He was an active member to the last, he turned up at the club most Sunday's to help out with the harbour racing (see above photo), often spent mornings on the quay watching the sea racing and even actively attended our recent AGM. Our sincerest condolences go out to Alwyn's family in this sad time.
Message from Keith Smith, Alwyn's son:
Just Giving page has been set up in memory of my Dad. All donations are going to the RNLI. Please would you forward to other HSC members and remind them that the funeral is at 1PM on Tuesday 12th December 2017 at the Bournemouth Crematorium, followed by afternoon tea at the Old Vicarage in Hinton. We would be very happy to see them. https://alwynedmund-smith.muchloved.com/frame.aspx Regards Keith
