Hi HSC Members,


Happy New Year Everyone...

...and welcome to 2020 II.    Not funny?  Sorry :-(   We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, however unconventional yours may have been and that you, and your families are all well.  We look forward to getting together again at HSC in 2022 and taking on any potential challenges the year may have in store for us with optimism, kindness and humour.  We can do this. 


Fortunately for us, our great passion takes us outdoors, into the fresh air, mostly, so big, bad bug or no big, bad bug, we can happily say let the water sport fun continue!  The Paddlers have plenty planned for this year with social paddles and lots of training .... more on that below.  We are also pleased to say that the HSC Icicle Open is back and we can't wait to wrap up warm and get stuck into to some chilly chases around the harbour. 


Now, on that note, we need several volunteers to help run the series, if you are free and would like to help out either pressing horns and hoisting flags, or dropping marks and whizzing to the rescue on the water, please could you sign up via the website or drop Wade a line on to let him know.  Thanks, all the dates are below.


Last year, just before Christmas, 12 sailors got together for our annual Santa Sail, and just like the year before, the sight of crazy people flying around the harbour in red bobbled hats and even beards, brought a wonderful warm feeling of togetherness to the water.  Christchurch SC were out racing and as the boats passed, calls of Happy Christmas rang out. It was really magical.  Hope everyone who joined in enjoyed it too.


And it's a huge thank you and well done to everyone who raced the Interclub Series last year, once more it was incredibly well attended and we hope you enjoyed it.  This year it is CSC who are hosting the prize giving and we are all cordially invited.  The event will take place at CSC on Thursday 27th Jan, however this is on a booking only basis and CSC need numbers attending from all clubs  by 17:00 on Thurs 13th Jan. They will provide a simple three course supper - menu / prices tbc.  Please contact their Sailing Secretary at to let them know if you would like to attend.  The last one was an excellent get together and was a quite a good laugh. If you have won a prize, or would like the opportunity to go and meet your sailing neighbours, then do sign up and go, it's great fun.

 An ideal club for sailors and water sports lovers of all abilities and aspirations.
