There is no racing over the weekend.


ADULTS ONLY

HSC training team would like to run an adult training weekend in the near future along the same lines as the very successful junior weekends.

There has already been quite a bit of interest expressed from several members and the training team would like to know if there is anyone else out there keen to have some official training.

Please contact training@highcliffesailing.co.uk if you would like to take part. The training team get on the case and see if they can organise a weekend or 2.


LADIES LOOKING TO SHARE

Friday 1st July from 18.00

Calling all double handers out there. Would you like to escort a delightful damsel out to sea, or take her for a spin around the harbour?

Well if this idea floats your boat then we need you. At our next LTL session on Friday 1st July we are looking to send as many of our Ladies that Launch as possible out in double handers with experienced sailors and let them enjoy all the fun of playing in the pointy end of a dinghy.

So if you can help by bringing your double hander then please let us know at training@highcliffesailing.co.uk .

We also need a couple of RIB drivers for the evening, if you can volunteer please contact training@highcliffesailing.co.uk.

Thanks for your support. Richard, Margaret and Ken are sure the ever generous ladies will buy their helms a drink in the bar afterwards!!!


WARNING

There is a sunken boat in the harbour not far from the club house marked by a yellow buoy, keep your eyes peeled when leaving or returning to shore.


SUPER TROUPER MEETS UPTOWNFUNK

Thanks to everyone who came along to the summer do last Saturday night. The social team, Helen Spencer Jones, Sabine Ulmer-Lake, Fiona Fowler and Ros Vesey did the club proud again, organising another fun and enjoyable evening. No effort was spared, the tables were beautifully decorated and even the ceiling received some colourful attention!!

The food was delicious, Al Fresco, moist pink lamb and hand made extra long sausages to die for.

The weather was perfect and we all got to enjoy a glass or 2 on the balcony overlooking the harbour watching the sun go down.

Thanks also to Tania Tarrant and co for manning the bar and providing a flower trough of ice with which to keep the Prosecco perfectly chilled.

A last but not least thanks go to the disco boys for turning the sailing club into a cross between a flamboyant 70’s discotheque and naughties nightclub. A little something for everyone I think……. Roll on the next party!
