We are sad to say that Ann Penn, a lifelong member of the club has passed away at the age of 82.  Ann had been an active windsurfer and dinghy racing member and was very involved with helping at the club, along with her husband Mike for many years.  Her years of experience at HSC made her a perfect candidate to become a trustee in 2010.  Ann was also a keen golfer and sponsored the HSC sign board at Highcliffe Golf Course.  Anyone who knew her would agree she was a truly inspirational lady, always smiling and happy to chat.

Hi HSC Members,




Re-opening of Changing Rooms 


Following the recent statement by the government regarding the “roadmap”

The changing rooms will be reopened as from the 12.04.21.

Showers to remain closed until 17.05.21 at the earliest.

The club policy is still to arrive at the club “Ready to Sail” However in certain
circumstances this may not be feasible. Therefore, there will now be access to the changing rooms. (The toilets are already accessible).

Rather than using a tally system like last year, members are asked to be highly aware of other people’s movements to ensure social distancing is maintained and observe the following:-

 If the changing rooms appear busy, please wait outside until somebody
leaves. Remember the 2-metre social distancing rule.

 If personal belongings are left in the changing rooms, please ensure they
are all packed way in your sailing bag to avoid possible cross

contamination. Ideally remove your bag to your car if possible.

 Please sanitise changing benches and contact surfaces prior to and
after use Sanitiser and tissues are available in changing rooms.

 Please ensure the doors and widows are kept open.


If at any time, you or any member of your party feels unwell or displays any
symptoms of Covid 19 please leave the clubhouse immediately and return
home for the safety of other members.


Face coverings to be always worn within the clubhouse.


The Committee thanks all the members in advance for your co-operation.


Look forward to seeing you all on the water.




Racing has successfully restarted at HSC.   We have now run both a Sea race and a Harbour race to kick off the season.  Today's harbour race was a sunny, pleasant affair, although there wasn't much water in the harbour towards the end which made it a bit tough for the Aeros ....  Good job everyone who came out to play today.  

 Thanks to Pete, Earl, Steve, Sue, David, Steuart and Tess for volunteering to go out on the water. 

The Sea & Harbour results will be up shortly.

Next race will be Sunday 18th April Sea Spring 1 & 2 start 1030



The HSC trainers all got together last week to start putting together a training programme for everyone in 2021.  In order to make the most of the Trainers availabilities to give the best possible training, we have changed the dates for the LTL.   They will now be on:-

Keep an eye on Facebook and WhatsApp, we will be contacting the interested Ladies shortly to gauge interest and put together a programme.


Please also contact if you would like Junior Training.  We need to establish numbers.  All the training, racing and social sailing dates can be found on the website under Racing/Upcoming Racing/Training.


The Training Pages have been updated and now contain lots of information on RIB handling and rescues.  Please check them out when you have a moment. 


Please book your Paddlers event at Webcollect.


Reminder: Sunday 18th July 2021


The Water Sports Team are planning to organise a RESCUE & RECOVERY training for SUP & Kayak. Should we have sufficient interest, these sessions will be delivered by New Forest Activities probably over in Beaulieu.
