Intro to sailing cancelled today

June 29, 2016 No Comments

Sorry to say the free Introduction to Sailing course planned for this evening (Wed 29th) will not be possible due to high winds (23-35 knots forecast).

Next scheduled session is Wed 13th July at 6pm.

Stuart’s is going to try and arrange another Sunday session to catch up – this may be at short notice but if you’ve registered your interest you’ll receive an email.

Open day 9th July

June 20, 2016 No Comments
Saturday 9th July we’re planning another ‘Open Day’ at the club – weather permitting! The idea is to encourage people who may possibly join as members – to come down and try out the facilities for free. If you know anyone like that – please spread the word!
Also if you’re willing / available to help on that day – PLEASE let us know! We need help with:
- experienced sailors to give ‘joyrides’
- bar / bbq
- safety
- general beach duties, moving / launching / landing boards, boats
Steve Murfet from Hunstanton Watersports has kindly volunteered to co-ordinate bookings so if you know anyone who would fancy it – please get them to ring Steve on the number on the poster below (01485 534455) and book their spot.
High tide is 10am – so the plan is to run Sail, SUP and kayaking while the tides in – then late afternoon switch more towards kitesurfing (and possibly windsurfing) once the tides out.
On the kitesurfing side of things – there will be North demo day courtesy of – if there’s any particular North gear you’d like to demo – please let us know and we’ll try and arrange it for you! To try out the demo gear – you need to be a competent kitesurfer and also have current BKSA insurance.
We also plan to run free deepwater packdown sessions in the afternoon. These will be similar to the very popular ones we ran last year – but in order to accommodate more people in the day – we’ll dispense with the prep and launching from a boat bit – and just approach you on the water where you’re already kitesurfing!
There’s a BBQ and party arranged for the evening – and that will definitely go ahead whatever weather we get thrown at us!
Hopefully see you there :-)
