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.

WHAT'S ON - AT THE CLUB
Once more, it's hats off to our Social Team and especially Neil, Karin and Karen for laying on another wonderful meal at the Club last Sunday. The Sunday carvery was a full house and everyone left with nothing but praise for the team, the food and the event. Fantastic job all round and thank you to everyone for coming down and making it all such a success.
This weekend it is the Mudeford Seafood festival, so the quay will be super busy. There will be some members milling around making the club look busy, so if you are at a loose end, this weekend could be the perfect time for that social sail (afternoon tides) or pleasure paddle.
We are also adding numbers to the impromptu BBQ WhatsApp list again this year. If you would like to be notified of any impromptu BBQs that may be going on at the Club, please let email@example.com have your details and you will be added to the group.
Don't forget - first official BBQ of the year (hopefully) will be Friday 31st May after the First Ladies That Launch session of 2019. Could be a busy evening, as it is the Contender & Osprey Open meeting that weekend, there could well be some visitors around that night too.
WHAT'S ON - THE WATER
This Sunday at 14:30 - that's 14:30 - it is the first of the Sea Interclub racing (late start to accommodate CSC getting up and down the river with the tides). There will be 2 support boats in attendance and the weather is looking warm with a South Westerly in charge of the surf.

MEMBERS ON TOUR
Our Aero sailors have been out and about once more over the last few weekends. Ken Fowler is still on his mad campaign to sail around all the islands of England and Wales (I think he has pretty much nailed Cornwall now), all the details are on his FB page Yodare or website https://yodare.co.uk.
James Rusden, Lorrian Wells, Graham Platt and myself have been at Burghfield (James) and Royal Lymington (the rest) having fun joining in Open Meetings, if you want to know how we all did, check out the Yachts & Yachting reports, I am saying nothing about our results ...
Last but not least, our lovely RS Feva sailors Alex & Jane Gibson are about to depart on the big bike ride - 20 days, 1000 miles the long hilly way from Land's End to John O'Groats - unsupported, carrying their own luggage!
They are hoping to raise some money for Macmillan for their efforts, so if can support them them would be fantastic. More details are on their just giving page on the link
