Highcliffe Sailing Club is located at the prime coastal location of Mudeford Quay allowing the club to offer sailing in the sheltered waters of Christchurch harbour and open water sailing in Christchurch Bay..
This makes it an ideal club for sailors of all abilities and aspirations. The club has a friendly and informal atmosphere.
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.

It's Friday night sea sailing this week, not Thursday (it's a tide thing). If you don't fancy it, the bar will be open so you can sit and watch those who do want to from the window and wish you were out there with them ...
Saturday looks great, plenty of late afternoon tide, wind and sunshine plus a Rum and Reggae party going on at the Beach House.... apparently..
Sunday is Interclub racing, CSC vs HSC, come and support your club and enjoy racing round a perfectly laid trapezoid course.

WHAT'S ON SOCIAL
Only 10 days left to sign up for the Dinner Dance. If you want to see what soggy, windswept members look like in something a little finer, then reserve your place and come and join the party. £35 per head for 3 course meal, lovely company, lots of laughing and maybe some dancing. Please book with Social@highcliffesailing.co.uk and pay via BACS before 15th June.
BBQ after LTL last Friday was great success despite it being bit chilly. Looking forward to having the next one!!
Next big Social date to save is Saturday 22nd June for our annual summer picnic by kayak, SUP or boat over at Hengisbury Head. Last year the weather was not so clever, so hopefully it will be better this year. Further details to come.
LAST WEEKEND'S OPEN MEETING
What a truly fantastic event last weekend was for our first Open Meeting of the year. Yet again so many members pulled together and gave up inordinate amounts of time (Helen Langdown) to make sure our visitors were looked after. Thank you to the Race Team, to Stephen Waite for getting down really early on Saturday and blowing up all buoys, to Peter Bell and Captain Ian for running the show, to the beach team for all the management, parking control and trolley lugging and to all the RIB helms and crews for putting up with each other for hours on end.
The yachts & yachting report has kindly been written by Rob Smith of the Contender Fleet.
HSC LADIES OPEN MEETING - CANCELLED
