*****THIS SATURDAY 16th JUNE *****
Mid-Summer picnic on Hengistbury Head
Open to everyone. Come by kayak, paddle board, sailing boat and for those without a boat Ian is taking his motor boat that can take passengers and picnics. Meet at the club 12 o'clock, bring your own picnic and drink and we shall paddle, sail or motor across the harbour to the beach on the other side where we can eat, drink and be merry.
All interested parties please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we have an idea of numbers and who would like a lift with Ian.
There will be plenty of water but is weather permitting of course.
Forecast is a bit windy but the afternoon looks fine.
LAST WEEKEND'S OPEN MEETING
Last weekend's Osprey & Contender Open was a massive success despite the wind playing hide & seek. Thank you to all the club members who gave up their time to help run the meeting. These weekends are great for the health and happiness of clubs and yet again HSC delivered a cracker of an event.
Especially a big thank you to Paul Walker for running the show and to Helen Langdown for all her hard slog running the galley.
Race reports can be found on these links:-
In the entrance of the Clubhouse is a log book for all members to log their sorties out on the water. For those who don't know about this or those who have been forgetting to do so, please would all members going out on the water note down their sortie - date, name, destination, time out and most importantly, time back in.
This book is important for 2 reasons:-
1. The lock up warden checks that all who have signed out have signed back in again and make sure everyone is accounted for.
2. So that the club can establish the number of members participating in water sports activities at the club for their status as a Community Amateur Sports Club (this status is fiscally important and our data must be quanitfiable )
This log applies to kayakers, SUPers, windsurfers and sailors. Please fill it in, it only takes 2 seconds.
