Welcome to edition 28 of the Bulletin, the regular communication keeping you informed of things happening at HBSC.

Sailing This Weekend:

Link to sailing calendar:

Saturday: Open Sailing 10am on the water start.

Sunday: 10am start, Autumn 5 and 6.

Volunteering is looking good for the weekend thank you! We just need a race officer and assistant for Sunday. With only 3 weeks left of the sailing season, if you have not yet volunteered, please step up! HBSC is run entirely by volunteers and every member is expected to do their bit, regardless of what type of membership you have. We do understand that SCM can pose some issues, but Simone is very happy to forward volunteer requests if help is needed. In addition, there will be a paper copy of the slots in the club house. As always, thank you to all who have helped so much to facilitate fun for all, it truly is appreciated!

Friday night bar

The bar will be open this Friday evening, why not bring your supper/takeaway at the same time!
