This Sunday, unbelievably, is the last in the First Series of 2022 but the first in our Under 13’s Series. The Under 13’s Series will take place at lunchtime every third Sunday until 21st August. We would like to encourage all our young helms to take part either single handed or with a young or old crew – a rather nice trophy awaits the winner! We have seen a good Sunday turnout on the river but would like to see more of you as the weather improves.
We have already had two very successful social events so far this year. Starting with the Fitting Out Party – thank you for all your scran bag donations. I think some of you may have ended up with things you didn’t realise you were bidding for – I blame the auctioneer or was it Manuel?! Saturday was Round the Island Race and Darts Night, and as Dave commented, Mack’s scoring was ‘like proper darts on the telly!’ It was lovely to catch up with Jimmy James and Ken Stott who enjoyed the spectacle and supper. It is a tribute to all those involved in organising the events to receive all the positive comments, praise and thanks made on the HSC whatsapp. You are an appreciative lot and I thank you all for your continued support of our lovely club.
Talking of social events, we have our annual Sunbury Rally (this year’s destination is Rivermead Island) and Picnic followed by Quiz Night on Saturday 14th May (see poster below). We would be grateful for food contributions for the Rally picnic, mugs of tea will be available. Please contact Alison to sign up for the quiz and select your food choices by Monday 9th May. Quiz teams will be up to a maximum of six people per team, you can sign up as a team or individually.
Finally, we start our relaxed mid-week sail, water fun and ‘bring your own’ supper on Wednesday 18th May so come along, sail or bring your paddleboard or kayak and enjoy the summer evenings at the club.
With best wishes, Michaela
