Last weekend, HSC along with Hengistbury Head Outdoor Centre, ran a very successful Junior Training programme in some very blowy conditions. Lots of happy faces, both parents and children alike, which can only serve as a testament to its success. Congratulations to all the children, we hope you enjoyed it!
Talking of success, we may need a little more enthusiasm for the Saturday Social Club! During the morning we had 2 kayakers, 2 supporters and 4 sailors come down to play. The sailors had a blast, flying around the harbour in some of the best sailing conditions we have had this year, it may have been a little more challenging for the kayakers facing a south westerly, however, great time had by all! This is your club, come and make the most of it.
WHAT'S ON SOCIAL
Bar will be open both Thursday (from 7.30pm) and Friday (from 7pm) again this week, come and watch some racing or support your partners while they are out getting wet and tired and have a glass ready for them when they get in – that’s definitely a shout out for all the Lovely Launching Ladies partners!!!
18th June – Club BBQ – Prosecco is ordered, charcoals are ready, just sorting the weather out and we will be good to go! Save the date.
Last Friday we welcomed David Brunskill to the club to give us talk on Changes in the 2017 – 2020 rules and a general discussion on racing. Thanks to everyone who came down and we hope that you found the evening informative and enjoyable.
Little reminder from last week's mailer
HSC are opening its doors again on 8-10th September this year to host 2 sets of National Championships, the Phantoms and the Europes. We are expecting nearly 70 boats and will be needing as many hands on deck as possible. Please would you let firstname.lastname@example.org know if you are ready, willing and able to get involved in volunteering for the event. We are looking for all the usual helpers including galley slaves, bartenders , trolley dollies, safety boat helms/crew and committee boat number crunchers. Thanks.
FINALLY - OUR VICE COMMODORE
Litte update on our adventurous Commodore. He is now in his second week of sailing and is currently enjoying the spectacular Welsh Coastline with views of Snowdonia, lots of boat stopping jelly fish and the odd visit from a dolphin or 2.
