News from The Commodore

With the AGM out of the way and formalities completed, we celebrated the end of our club year with an epic dinner dance just across the water at the Harbour Hotel. We welcomed some 190 members in what was a memorable night and at a terrific venue. We have not tried anything on this scale in my time at the club so there was a degree of hesitancy by the Committee before making the commitment in advance of ticket sales. This meant that available dates were limited for a party of our size and we thus shared the venue with a number of other small parties who had prebooked. While not ideal, the very positive feedback we have received means that we will approach the hotel early this time with a view to discussing an evening exclusive to HSC in 2024 with more space between the tables and allowing for a larger dance floor. We understand that HSC is their biggest single customer for this festive season, so fingers crossed for our organizing team.

 

Moving on, we warmly welcome all the new members who have joined since the AGM and hope you can join us at the New Years bash for which tickets are already on sale (don’t delay or you might be disappointed as we are limited by capacity)!

 

We have made some changes to the Committee structure to reflect the changing demands of the club and we have just held our first meeting for the next club year when we began discussions as to the next years programme of activities. We will continue to communicate all of these activities to you through the WhatsApp Groups and regular newsletters but we will reduce duplication through exclusive use of the All-Members WhatsApp group only. This will include the weekly roundup of activities in addition to announcements about new events so if you don’t want to miss out, use the QR code below or just email events@highcliffesailing.co.uk with your name and phone number and we can add you. We have 267 members already registered but we know that it doesn’t cover everyone.

 

 

 

We are also introducing a new way for volunteering for sailing duties – called DutyMan. This is live now and ready to take your volunteering for 2024. At the moment, we have races in for Jan and Feb; the Icicle series, and they are open for volunteering now (warm gear is essential!). The rest of the racing calendar will be added very shortly.  If you go to the Noticeboard section for this newsletter, you will see more information about it and how to register.

 

Wishing all of our members and your families a merry festive season and we look forward to another action packed year in 2024 at HSC
