WHAT'S ON - THE WATER
Next Frostbite races 3 & 4 will be on Sunday 17th November and will be run by MSC - start at 11:00 not 10:30 � the start will be off their jetty and they will be using their MSC race marks (fixed orange ones). At the moment there is a negotiation afoot as to whether we need to sign on at MSC first (that is where the course will be displayed) and whether they will stop for their customary tea break in between races or not � the decision will depend on the weather � I have expressed to MSC that now it is rather parky out there, it may be more pleasant not to get out of our boats (and therefore get wet) and hang around between races. The decision is however down to MSC and will probably be weather dependant. I will keep everyone updated.
Please note we are missing Safety Boat helm & crew now on Sunday 15th Dec for the last of the Frosbite (MSC is running this one so nice and easy job � but probably best to take a flask with you ..). Please let firstname.lastname@example.org if you can step in and help out.

BIG PLASTIC CLEAN UP
Big Local Plastic Hunt on Mudeford Quay was postponed last weekend and will now take place on Saturday 23rd November and EVERYONE is welcome, if not encouraged to come down to the quay and help out.
Highcliffe Sailing Club will be opening its doors to all the locals in the area who have turned up and assisted in cleaning up our beautiful quay and we will be selling reasonably priced tea and coffee to everyone in need of a warm up (obviously if someone wants to bring a cake or two down to sell they would be more than welcome!). We are looking for some willing helpers to stay behind after Yoga or just to come to the club and help serve in the galley. If you have spare hour or two after 11.30 on Saturday morning please would you let email@example.com know. All help, as usual, will be gratefully received.

The sessions will continue this week as last week � Wednesday 18:00 � 19:00 ish and Saturday 10:00 till 11:00 ish - £5 per session for members, please don�t forget your mats and something warm for the cool down.
