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.

PICOS AT THE READY
Saturday 20th July - HSC is laying on a fun day at the club for everyone with Pico Racing, Kayak & SUP relay and BYO BBQ.
All the on-the-water fun will take place in the harbour in full view of the Club, so even if you aren't out competing you can still join in the spectacle. The sign up sheet for the Pico racing has 2 spaces left if there is anyone out there who would still like to join in. Thanks to the 18 sailors who have already put their names down.
We are also looking for a few more kayakers to come along and take part in the relay.
There will be prizes for the top 4 sailors and first place relay team.
Please let firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join in. Everyone is welcome, new members, social sailors, paddlers, kayakers... everyone. Hope you can make it.
Racing starts at midday, the BBQ will be lit pretty much all afternoon and the bar will be open. Now all we need to do is hope that the weather is friendly.

LADIES THAT LAUNCH IN WIND
Ladies That Launch had a fab, rewarding time out on the water last Friday. Not only did the weather serve up a properly warm, properly windy wind but the lucky launching ladies were treated to some race training in the harbour. Well done to everyone who stood up to the windy conditions, faced down any nervousness and went out and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks also to Finn and David for their time and efforts in taking the ladies through their paces, for highlighting how bad my starts are and for giving everyone such a confidence boost.
Next session will be Friday 26th July with Richard and Margaret.
A LITTLE BIT OF HELP NEEDED
After many many years of volunteering Phil has decided to step down as our 'go to' man for getting the fuel for the RIBs. As you know, HSC is a volunteer run club and we cannot make it work without help from our members. We are therefore asking if there is anyone who would be prepared to step into the role and be our next fuel person. If you think you can help, would like to help or have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
ON THAT NOTE
The Picos have been looked after by various members over the years, thank you to Keith and Jon for all their work numbering the boats and sorting the kit. Ian and Jim have now prepared the boats for another year, but are looking for a member or 2 to take on the responsibility of maintenance for the coming months. Again, if you have any questions or think that you can help at all, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone, your help is most appreciated and most definitely invaluable. Without your involvement, it means that it is always the same few people taking all the roles to keep your club running. If you want to get involved and help keep HSC alive and well, please, please do. Thank you.
Can you help. Volunteer or Swap requested for RaceDuty
