HISC 95th Anniversary Weekend

HISC will be welcoming back former members and current members to celebrate the club’s 95th Anniversary in May 2016 . . . The club is organising a weekend of sailing and social events for the weekend of the 7 and 8 May . . . including Club Pennant Racing, a 95th Anniversary Tea Party and a Commodore’s Drinks Reception . . .

We hope everyone is now aware that we are celebrating our 95th birthday this year and have a celebration planned for the 7th May.  Most of the organisation for this has been undertaken by our Archives ladies, Belinda Cook and Leonie Austin, ably assisted by Jennie Hickey.

However, we are now looking for a few members to assist with final preparations for the event.  This involves decorating the clubhouse in the days leading up to the party (and clearing it afterwards), but if you think you could help in other ways, all offers are welcome.

If you want to help, please contact Leonie Austin at leo.austin@tiscali.co.uk

Those interested are asked to contact the office at Hayling Island Sailing Club on +44 (0) 23 9246 3768 or email carol.letten@hisc.co.uk to find out more details about the planned events and book tickets. The office will forward any queries about HISC history to the team of Archivists.

Sundowner Series - Your Thursday Appointment

The Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and entry form for the Sundowner Open Series for Cruisers and RS Elites are posted . . . A first warning signal of 18:50 hrs each Thursday . . .

The Early series will be run under the old NHC system giving time for those without a VPRS rating to sign up for the Late series, pay HISC a very reasonable £20 and complete a form to obtain a rating.

Entry for both series is free so no excuse not to enter and join in the fun and it will be interesting to compare results between the series.
If you just want to join in for a race or two but not enter the series, you can, but your result will not be part of the series. Radio the race officer on the water and tell him your just entering for fun.
