Balcony

July 13, 2017 No Comments

HUGE thank you to everyone who came down and helped last night!

We had everything going on – from Geoff Carnell with his digger helped by ‘the machine’ Ivan Espley, Will Rockcliffe and Mantas Luinys digging the footings for the balcony. John Fox, Andy Holland, Les Collinson, Lisa Collinson boarding out the new bar cellar. Gemma Philp, Candy Game, Sue Gumb and Dave Gumb doing the weeding / gardening. Lee Torrice stripping down the rib engine – and me with my weedy alien-arm serving drinks  ;-)

What an amazing little community we’ve got – thank you so much! 

If you’re down the club in the next few days please watch your step and be aware there are some big holes to be concreted-in shortly.

If you’d like to come and help – the next session starts saturday morning 


Sunset Festival / BKC Finals

July 7, 2017 No Comments

Just two weeks to go to one of our biggest events of the year!

Once again we will be hosting the finals of the British Kitesurfing Championships – so if you’d like to see the top kitesurf talent in the country put 22-23 July in your diary ;-)

If that wasn’t enough – the same weekend sees us team up for the first time with Hunstanton Round Table to bring you the SUNSET FESTIVAL. Starting at 7pm on the friday and running through to sunday evening – come and enjoy a mixture of live bands, DJ’s, cocktail bars, wine bars, beer bars and all to raise funds for charity :-)

Hunstanton RNLI

June 25, 2017 No Comments

This morning I had the privilege of presenting free memberships to the crew of Hunstanton RNLI on behalf of the club.

A lot of fundraising goes on for the RNLI but it’s not often you get the chance to thank the amazing individuals who give up their time for free and put themselves at risk. On behalf of the local watersports community THANK YOU so much, each and every one of you :-)

Hunstanton Sailing Club is a community amateur sports club run by volunteers and we’re honoured to have you join our little family :-)

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 :-)
