WHAT'S ON - SOCIAL

Our Midsummer Social last Saturday evening was very well attended, with the big prize winning raffle adding another £425 for the Race To Scotland pot. This tips the amount raised by our Vice Commodore to an incredible £32,630.

Thank you to the Social Team for organising the evening and taking the time to cut up kilos of fresh strawberries which were totally scrumptious and made the perfect accoutrement to all the Prosecco guzzled on the club balcony backlit by a picture perfect sun setting slowly over the harbour. What more could you ask for?


RNLI FUN DAY

Saturday 30th July

Every year we like to get involved in supporting the RNLI Fun Day in some way by helping to attract visitors to the quay. We are not opening the galley this year, but the clubhouse will be open and we would like as many members as possible to pop down anytime during the day and maybe rig their boat (or at least take the covers off), make the boatyard look busy and chat to passing visitors. This will hopefully add to the ambience of the RNLI day, help to fill their all important fund raising pots and hopefully give a good and welcoming impression of our lovely club to passers by.

Pete Emerson is the go-to man for this, please send him a quick email on peterlemerson@uwclub.net if you have an hour or 2 spare and would like to get involved. As a sailing club, the importance of the RNLI is not lost on us and it would be great to show our support.


UPCOMING NATIONALS

The Phantom & Europe Nationals are fast approaching (8-10th September) with nearly 70 boats expected it is going to be a big deal for our little club. The Phantom organisers have already been in contact and are starting to publicise the event and are looking forward to it enormously, so letís make sure that we deliver them a fab Nationals.

If you havenít done so already, please would you let sailsec@highcliffesailing.co.uk know if you are able to get involved. We are looking for all the usual helpers including galley slaves, bartenders , trolley dollies, safety boat helms/crew and committee boat number crunchers. Thanks.


MUDEFORD SC - EVENT

Mudeford SC are hosting an RS Tera Regional Regatta this Saturday, first race is at 10am and with the exciting wind forecast, it could make for some great spectating. Anyone looking for further information, please check out the MSC website.
