THE EXCITEMENT IS BUILDING ...

…as we head towards fulfilling our role as host of the prestigious EUROPEAN CONTENDER CHAMPIONSHIPS at our club in September.

In order to make this major fixture on the racing calendar a cracking success and an enjoyable experience for competitors and Highcliffe SC alike, we are asking members to come down and get involved both on and off the water.

To date the organising team have rallied together many kind volunteers, many thanks to those who have already put themselves forward. We are however still in need of a few more hands.

If you haven’t already offered and you feel you have some time to support your club and our 2 resident racers in their quest to lift the European Trophy, please have a read through the details below and let us know if you can give some time.


WHAT IS THE EVENT?

European Contender Championships. We have nearly 70 boats from 8 different nationalities already signed up to compete alongside our very own Simon Mussell and Gary Langdown to battle it out for the coveted trophy and title.

WHEN IS IT?

3rd – 9th September 2016

WILL I NEED TO HELP ALL WEEK?

No. Any days you can offer will be gratefully accepted. Or even just mornings/afternoons if you are beach/club house based.

WHO CAN HELP?

All members!

Ladies That Launch why not get involved? Come out on the water and watch 70 burly blokes hang off a thin wire, whizzing through the water with only their tiptoes touching the boat!

Or all you harbour sailors who want to find out what it is like to race out at sea, there is a place on the committee boat for you!!

SKILLS/EXPERIENCE NEEDED?

None!

WHAT ARE THE JOBS?


Volunteer Vacancies that need filling are :-

On the water there are 16 volunteer roles to fill per day, Sunday – Friday. We are missing 2/3 for each day.

Committee Boat

No skills or knowledge required. If you can hoist a flag or record a sail number then you are the person for the job. If you can spare a day or 2 please let us know.

On the beach there are 6 volunteer roles to fill per day, Saturday to Friday. We are missing 2/ 3 for each day

Beach Master

No skills or knowledge required. Help needed to see the competitors off the beach in the morning, assist any early returners and help organise the end of day return.

In the club there are 6 volunteer roles to fill per day Saturday to Friday. We are missing 2/3 for each day.

Head Chef and bottle washer Galley Team are looking for some hands, morning or afternoon, any day, all help welcome

Pint puller

Bit of pint pulling and witty banter needed behind the bar, training given if necessary, over 18 only. If you are free an afternoon/evening please let us know, the pints won’t pull themselves and the Contender chaps can be quite dehydrated when they come off the water….
