RAFT RACE & RNLI FUN DAY

HSC joined in the RNLI Fun Day raft race last Sunday, 6th Aug, alongside 20 other spectacular looking rafts and in front of a packed Mudeford Quay and spit. The 8 man team headed by chief raft builders Jim n Phil managed a very respectable 2nd place overall!! Lots of photos are on the cub Facebook page or on this link http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/16399907.pictures-crowds-out-in-force-to-enjoy-mudeford-rnli-funday-2018/. Thank you to everyone who came down to support the team and cheer the boys and girls on.

The Committee would also like to thank all those members who came down and helped out with the club open day with meeting and greeting and rigging their boat up as part of the dinghy display. The event was a great success once more and HSC are pleased to welcome 7 new members to the club!

HSC also welcomed the RNLI boys & girls to the club last Sunday for a seafood and chips dinner. Thanks to the barmen who kept the conviviality flowing all day, there was an excellent atmosphere in the club from 10 till 10 and a good time was had by all involved.
