Current Projects 2020
Highcliffe Sailing Club is always looking for ways to improve what we can offer our Members and the big project for last year was a complete reconstruction and rebuild of the ladies changing room. The finished area is now fresh, modern and roomier and all the ladies are very pleased with the result.
This year we are refreshing the bar area to make the back storeroom tidier and more functional, and modernising the main bar area with new fridges and an improved layout. We have also recently replaced the very old carpet with a beautiful blue one and hope to start giving the outside of the Clubhouse a full lick of paint which will see it through the winter. We are also installing a large screen in the main room in preparation for our Winter Talk presentations and televised sporting events.
We have recently sold 6 old Pico dinghies and replaced them with 2 brand new RS Zests and along with donations from some generous members we now have a dinghy hire fleet which hopefully offers something for everyone, whatever ability and whatever sailing requirements, be it social or racing.
For all the Paddlers out there, we have just finished building a second kayak racking at the far end of the dinghy park and now have space for 50 kayaks!
This summer we joined forces with our watersports neighbour, Shoresports to offer our members a heavily discounted deal on SUP/Kayak rental. This arrangement has proved very popular and we hope to extend the deal into 2021.
We are currently looking at the leaky club roof and considering our options for the future.
The Club has a list of ideas and dreams to make HSC a great place to be part of, if any members wish to get involved with the DIY and maintenance of the club please do not hesitate to contact the Committee, all help is gratefully received.
