Hi HSC Members,
Anyone who has been to the club recently will have seen the fresh look to the Clubhouse. The painters have been busy over the last couple of weeks and now the whole building has bright, clean look which is both inviting and frames our colourful club signs beautifully. The Club is ready for summer!
Inside the building, the kitchen improvements are continuing and everything is looking like it should be ready for the full re-opening on 21st June. The Social sailors came to the club last Wednesday to test out the new coffee machine for everyone and can report back that it works very well. Don't forget to bring your own cups to the club if possible, so that we can minimise waste. Please note that on re-opening, the bar and galley will be cashless to avoid handing money, so don't forget to bring your card if you want to purchase anything.
Out in the harbour the BCP council have laid exclusion buoys just off the beach. Within this zone (see photo below) there is no mooring which should prevent the area becoming congested with parked jet-skis and small boats over summer.
With regard to our plans to install CCTV to keep a watchful digital eye over the dinghy park, things are moving along well and we hope to have this installed by August.
Over in the boat park, we are pleased to let you know that we have expanded the kayak racking to accommodate the 3 new lightweight kayaks we are about to purchase. These kayaks will be available to hire and will increase the opportunities for members without their own kit to get out on the water. The current red kayak has moved home and can now be found clinging to the side of the racking (see photo below).
Your bosun has been busy again, this time colour coding the hire fleet trolleys to help re-unite the boats with their base after a day out sailing. Now you will find that the Zest trolleys have a yellow handle, the Picos a blue one, the Topper a red one and the Laser a white one (see photos). We hope that this will help.
Finally a quick message from our Social Team - and please forgive me for mentioning it already - but save the date: 12th Dec HSC Christmas Lunch brought to you all from our new galley by our hard working galley Team. Full details will be available in due course and the booking and payment of the event will all be done through Webcollect.
