Calling all sailors this weekend, YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOUR RACING SKILLS, don’t let MSC and CSC waltz off with the Harbour Interclub trophy, come down and join in the racing. 11 O’clock start, not too early and the weather forecasters say sunny, warm (ish) with South Easterlies F2-3. Ideal no?

We have had a call from a teacher, a Mr John Slattery from St James C of E Primary Academy, Pokesdown. They are doing a project about plastic waste in the oceans and the children are going to make a catamaran out of plastic bottles. He would like to know if someone could possibly bring a catamaran to the school on Monday 2nd october and give simple explanation how it works for his class.

OUR WONDERFUL CLUB MEMBERS
As mentioned on our Facebook page, our Highcliffe SC members just go on doing incredible, impressive and heart warming things for others.
Despite his prosthetic leg, Jonathan Rhoades ( HSC Solo sailor) has taken on the mighty Dart 12k open water swimming challenge alongside, in his own words '650 even fitter lunatics'.
Despite stormy conditions and the fact that '10k is a really, really long way', he managed to complete this herculean task and has raised a brilliant total of £5313 for legs4africa, a charity supplying much needed prosthetic legs to the people of Gambia.
Full details of his humbling effort fight against adversity and nature are on his 'just giving' page (search Jonathan Rhoades, it is easy to find).
Like Ken Fowler and his perpetual drive to pit sailing dinghy against Poseidon, Jonathan is already planning to battle against 'ice cream head syndrome, weed, sweet water, back pain and then numbness' once more and is training to swim the length of Lake Windermere next year.
Please support him if you can.
Also, the BBC program Saving Lives at Sea featured one Mudeford RNLI team in action this week Truly awesome stuff and not to be missed. Catch it on iplayer and see if you recognise anyone you know ......
