HISC Boat Jumble Sunday 7 December from 10 am in aid of the Thursday Club which brings the chance to learn to sail to young people from all walks of life at little (£2) or no cost to them . . . Just a quicky to keep you informed of all the goodies coming in for our sale, a six man or woman Liferaft, plus Harken Blocks for Dinghies and Cruisers and nearly new equipment such as fender Steps, Safety Harnesses that have never been used, Life Jackets and there are so many items, you must come and get a bargain. more . . .

A quick update to let you know that the HISC RS Elite Fleet has now reached double figures. Predictably a list of social events will soon be in full swing prior to any sailing! . . . Apart from the odd days practice, most boats are saving themselves for an early spring launch, by which time we have high hopes of another couple of boats . . . more . . .

All the Social Events at HISC

As we head towards Christmas and the New Year the social scene at HISC has gone into overdrive . . . We feature the events here on the front page of the website, both in the sidebar and as a main feature in the news section . . . in addition we have added a new page to the Social section of the menu where all the event posters and details will be featured, together with the on-line reservation line . . . Just click any of the side-bar event items or use the drop-down menu to go to the Club Social Event page . . .

This year has been an outstanding year for youth performances at HISC and further afield . . . To celebrate this we are going to have a party! As well as celebrating 2014 achievements we will be awarding Youth Endeavour awards . . . Please send votes to secretary@hisc.co.uk for your 'Sailor's Sailor' of the year - this can be for someone you feel has done well, supported other sailors, improved massively - we want your votes and reasons why! more . . .

From the Fireball Association website - Fireballs are back in Chichester Harbour! The re-emergence in 2014 of the Hayling Island SC Fireball fleet caught the attention of local and national observers as it swiftly grew to 15 boats and regularly turned out 6 – 8 entrants in club races . . . more . . .

The "Laying Up Supper" was recently held at the Club . . . The Nick Danby Cruising Trophy was won by Mark Pollington for his log of the voyage of his Cornish Shrimper, "Polly" around the Western Isles of Scotland, bravely accompanied by his wife, Lisa . . . more . . .

A couple of weeks into the new House role and things gradually slotting into place, it has certainly been an interesting and enlightening fortnight, who knew baked potatoes were such an emotive subject? . . . Don’t worry it is on the list now the team for the new committee is now in place and chomping at the bit to get going . . . Mean time a few updates and reminders . . . more . . .
