It is predominantly a family club with members of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. All members are expected to help with the running of the club, It's a good way to meet people and it's fun to be involved.

Push the Boat Out Sat 9th May
The Weekend is here!! Saturday forecast is for sunshine and a good SW breeze. Come on down to the club from 1 - 5pm for whatever time you can spare. Have a try on the RS kit and help welcome potential new members.
Push the boat out is an opportunity for people to come along and see what sailing is all about. It raises the profile of sailing in the area, our great club and has the potential for us to gain new members.
Some members are giving their time to help out and show people what a great place Highcliffe Sailing Club is and if anyone else is around and could spend an hour or two to help out that would be great, you never know the weather maybe fantastic and we can get the BBQ going as well.
RS have leant us a Cuba to try out and we also have the Pico’s and Vision if you fancy sailing something different. Have you got a boat you would like to showcase to other members to raise the class fleet?
Windsurfers - This is a great opportunity for you to showcase windsurfing in the harbour, if any of you would be willing to set a few boards up and show other members, adults and kids, your great sport that would be brilliant.
Any questions or comments please contact Dom on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07791 767116.
Please keep checking duty rotas to see if you can help out with any swaps (red dot) or just volunteer for warden, bar, galley and race duties. You might find a more convenient date that you would prefer to do. There is a Warden swap requested for Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 May if anyone can help. Also there are some bar duties to be covered and if anyone can offer help in bar and galley for the open meeting 19-21 June please contact email@example.com (bar) or firstname.lastname@example.org (galley) for more information/times required.
Pier Race 16th Race
There is a change to the original plan for food after the race. Instead of DIY BBQ it will now be fish and chips.
If anyone is able to cover the bar a pint or two will go down nicely!! Please contact Tania as above.

Sailors FYI - Just a quick update regarding ingress and egress of Christchurch Harbour via the navigation channel. We have completed mechanical enhancing operations on the channel crossing the bar, 300m off the tip of Mudeford Sandbank this morning. Unfortunately the channel green and red buoys cannot be re-positioned until Tuesday next week, therefore until then mariners will have two possible channels available to them. We have however deployed ten yellow warning buoys with a St Andrews cross a top, to demarcate the contractors dredging operation zone which will also come into effect from Tuesday.
