LADIES INTERCLUB IS BACK
Calling all Ladies, that means you as well you Lovely Launching Ladies, it is your time to shine.
Friday 21st July, rigged and ready for a 19h00 start to join in our wonderful annual Ladies Interclub Cup race with the lovely ladies from Christchurch SC.
So to all the Girls That Can, this is the moment to show off your skills, have some fun and keep the trophy in the HSC cabinet.
Last year we had 20 lovely Ladies line up with Lorrian Wells taking the cup followed in by Saron Rusden and Vicky Locke from CSC. Who will win this year? Come and join in, it might be you…..
One small thing however ….
At present we need a full Race Team to run the show - RO, ARO plus Safety boat helm and crew – please let Chris email@example.com know if you can fill a role and make this a great evening for the Ladies.
Our super sailors Gary Langdown and Simon Mussell have been out flying the flag for Highcliffe SC again lining up alongside 53 other boats in the Italian Contender Nationals last weekend (30/6 -2/7).
In light winds, surrounded by the most stunning scenery and in some beautiful weather, Gary romped home with a 3,7,2,2 giving him a fantastic 2nd place overall and for our windy weather specialist Simon, a very impressive 1,10,6,25 and a brilliant 4th place.
All in all a perfect warm up for the Contender Worlds in Sonderborg YC, Denmark which will take place from 12th -14th July. Good luck guys! Bring back the trophy, we are all rooting for you! I will try and update the Facebook page with their progress wherever possible.
ONE LAST THING
