Happy Christmas from HSC
This will be the last mailshot from HSC until the New Year. We hope all our members have enjoyed a great year of sailing with HSC and we look forward to seeing you all in 2015!
The last race of the year is scheduled for this coming Sunday:
21st Dec Sun 10:00 Harbour Frostbite series 7 & 8
The Wednesday morning sailing didnít happen this week. Instead, at the suggestion of Louise Booth, we went to the Noisy Lobster for lunch (a lot warmer). It was very well attended apart from a few that dropped out with seasonal coughs and colds. I hope they are better soon. Everyone is now looking forward to Wednesday sailing again next year.
The Harbour rescue launch Edna May hasnít been used for about 3 weeks. I thought I would take Edna for a trip to check the engine started and to recharge the battery. All went well for about 20 minutes until engine failed, not to restart. I was near harbour mark 3; I must have looked quite a sight towing Edna behind the club rowing dinghy. Plenty of good exercise was had and I got Edna back on the mooring ok..
I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a successful 2015 sailing season.
The Committee would like offer their sincere thanks to Nicky Fitoussi, Quentin Stokes and Yvonne and Mark Sharman, who organised and prepared a fabulous Christmas Lunch last Sunday.
Over 62 members attended and enjoyed a delicious dinner, followed by mince pies and coffee. There was much hilarity with flying balloons and cracker pulling and Jamie McCormick first in the queue for seconds!!
Dom Rogers also took the opportunity to thank some of the youngsters who have regularly helped with Sailing School this year, namely Lauren Rogers, Tom Spencer Jones and Beth Spencer Jones.
Once again, thanks to all who helped run a very successful event and to all those who helped with setting up and clearing away.
