RNLI training and Push the Boat Out

May 24, 2017 No Comments

Cracking day, last sunday at hunstantonsc.co.uk - did a ‘multi-sports training exercise’ in the morning with Hunstanton RNLI – with club members simulating being in need of rescue in 5 sports: sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking and SUP. Then ‘Push the Boat Out’ in the afternoon providing FREE sessions for the general public in sailing, SUP and kayaking. Huuuuuuge thanks to all the wonderful club members who volunteered to help whether it be admin, beach duties, or helming the sailing boats. Special thanks to Les at hunstantonkayaks.co.uk and Steve at hunstantonwatersports.com not only for helping – but also letting us use all their kayaks, SUP’s and wetsuits for free!

HSC is a community amateur club run by volunteers – come and check us out – we’d love you to join our little community :-)

Push the Boat Out

This coming Sunday May 21st we are offering FREE Taster sessions for sailing, SUP & kayak with RYA Push The Boat Out.

This is a great opportunity to get out on the water to enjoy the stunning surroundings, meet some great people who are passionate about various water sports and to try all these sports for yourself in a safe supported environment.

From racing across the water on a high performance catamaran, cruising in a Quba or paddling your way along the shore line on a paddle board or kayak, there is something to suit all tastes and levels of confidence.

Come along between 1300-1700 on Sunday with your friends and family to make the most of this fantastic opportunity :-)

Each time you make a purchase you get a token (unless you use the self-service tills) – place the token in the slot of the project you’d like to support  :-)

The promotion runs throughout May and June…
