FRIDAY NIGHT TALKS AT HSC
This Friday sees another of our superb Friday Night Talks at HSC � and this week we welcome Club Member Ken Fowler, back again, this time to give us the first of our Training Evenings - How to be a Race Officer (and enjoy it..!). The Talk will strip the duties back to basics, covering everything from what time to arrive and where the race kit is stored to how to lay marks and what order to hoist the flags in. This Talk is designed as preparation for the upcoming racing season and is suitable for members of ALL levels of experience. The bar will be open from 19:30 and the Talk will start at 20:00
A SPECIAL GUEST COMING TO HSC
The following Friday 6th March, HSC is pleased to welcome the Mayor of Christchurch, Lesley Dedman to our Club. The Mayor has been cordially invited, and has duly accepted to attend the launch of Club Member Roxanne Bannatyne�s initiative in the battle against Dementia. Roxanne will be giving a presentation, designed especially for the over 40's (or very sensible people under 40!), who want to learn how to do everything possible to protect themselves from Dementia and ill-ageing.
"With someone in the U.K. developing this devastating condition every 3 minutes prevention is a vital tool." Dr. James Pickett, Alzheimer's Society.
There is a suggested donation (but NO obligation) price of £5 to cover items and booklet given, and to enable Roxanne to take her presentation further afield.
Everyone is welcome, guests can be signed in. The talk will be starting at 19:30, the bar will be open at 19:00.
HSC would like to thank Craig Webb for his fantastic talk last Friday and thank you to everyone for coming along to listen to his informative and important talk. If you would like more information on this highly important initiative, please find a link to his FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/plasticfreeseas/
WHAT'S ON - THE WATER
Unfortunately, the isobars are still clinging closely to each other creating conditions too windy to go out and play in dinghies, kayaks and SUPs. In fact, sadly the last 2 races of our Icicle Open were cancelled, meaning that out of 8 races, we only managed to run 2 of them. The good news is that it is March this weekend and Spring is only around the corner!
WHAT'S ON - AT THE CLUB
Saturday 14th March is Six Nations Final day with all 6 teams playing, so after last year�s blast, the Social Team are throwing another party, this year as a Fish n Chip Supper. All 3 matches will be shown on the big screen, so the club will be open from 2pm. Dinner timings to be confirmed.
Roxanne�s very popular YOGA sessions - Every Wednesday from 18:00 � 19:30 and every Saturday 10:00 � 11:30 - £5 per session for Members, £6 for guests. Just show up, no need to book.
