Many thanks to Janice G, Sue H and Sally P and all the others who volunteered to staff the bar over lunchtime of the Icicle series. Please support them and the club as it does tend to be a little bit lonely if they make the effort and no one joins them.
If you would like to help, please contact email@example.com

Highcliffe Sailing Club is located at the prime coastal location of Mudeford Quay allowing the club to offer sailing in the sheltered waters of Christchurch harbour and open water sailing in Christchurch Bay.
This makes it an ideal club for sailors of all abilities and aspirations. The club has a friendly and informal atmosphere.
It is predominantly a family club with members of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. All members are expected to help with the running of the club, It's a good way to meet people and it's fun to be involved.

Start Time = 10am
Lunch = bacon sandwiches

Bring suitable warm and waterproof clothing you dont mind getting dirty.
For those of you with soft hands I recommend bringing some gloves as sand paper can be a bit rough on soft skin!
Icicle Series 25/01/2015
This popular open series continues on Sunday 25th, starting at 11.00 am. Non members are welcome to join the race with a token fee of £1.00 per boat.
If you aren't a winter sailor, it's worth coming down to watch, the race is run from the clubhouse and 20+ boats in the harbour is quite a sight, plus you can warm up afterwards in the Bar.
Ladies That Launch 2015
So Christmas is over, we're all probably wishing we hadn't drank so much at New Year and everyone is now wondering which New Years resolution will be the one to stick at. Well here's the answer - Ladies That Launch will be back in 2015 and hopefully even better than last year.
To kick of the season we are planning to have a get together on Wednesday 11th February at 8pm down at the club - and yes the bar will be open for those recovering from "Dry January".
The first 6 dates for your diary are as follows:15th May; 29th May; 12th June; 26th June;10th July;7th August.
There will be some other race dates and we have the potential of a challenge race against the ladies at Christchurch Sailing Club - more details later!!
