RS Elite Keelboat at HISC
During the course of this summer a number of members have been asking if one-design keelboat racing will ever happen again at HISC. Following much consultation and discussion over the last few weeks, a group of members have signed up for a serious campaign to achieve the goal of a racing fleet of RS Elites based at HISC . . .
Not a quick process and not for the fainthearted but we believe we have what it takes, that there is sufficient enthusiasm, and a big enough pool of sailors – the time is right.
In addition to the three boats already at HISC, six more are expected to be joining them by the start of the 2015 season:
Mike Dawe 6 Duel
Paul & Caroline Fisk 11 Legs Eleven
Mark Allerston & Roddy Bowerman12 Escapade
Mark & Lisa Pollington 20 No Riff Raff
Alasdair McLeod 29 Galadrial
Ossie Stewart & Rob Cruikshank 67 More T Vicar
Mike & Caroline Mcintyre & Simon Childs 76 Foudafafa
Dave & Jill Hitchcock 84 Kiss
Nick & Kate Peters 92 No More Toys
For more information please get in touch with one of the 'Elite Ambassadors' – Nick Peters, Roddy Bowerman, Mark Allerston, Ossie Stewart, Mike McIntyre or Paul Fisk – who will be more than happy to hear your thoughts and talk through the plans. Not only can their contact details be found in the club handbook, they themselves are often to be found in the club bar.
