Kayaking the Wash

May 22, 2014 No Comments

Hunstanton Sailing Club will be hosting a BBQ this Sunday 25th to welcome home a team of firefighters kayaking across the wash.

The firefighters from Cambridge Airport are raising funds for a variety of charities including the RNLI and have received support, training and equipment from our very own Les Collinson at Hunstanton Kayaks.

All welcome – so come on down and cheer them home – the bar will be open, the barbie on – and collection tins on hand if you want to make a contribution to the chosen charities.

The team are setting off from Skegness at 0900 with a support team consisting of Rib’s / jet ski’s and hope to land at Hunstanton around 1600.

Club BBQ – Easter Sunday

April 1, 2014 No Comments

Hunstanton Sailing Club is hosting a club BBQ on Easter Sunday, 20th April.

There will be a free children’s Easter Egg Hunt at 2pm followed by BBQ at 4pm.

Weather-permitting we’ll have the various club sailing, windsurfing and stand-up paddle equipment out available for members to use.

Hopefully this will also be an opportunity to distribute the membership swipe-cards for the new entry system which is being installed shortly.

Hope to see you there!

Mirror Miracles Nationals next August 16th to 22nd

October 15, 2013 No Comments

Hi there folks!

This is a very prestigious event, the 40th Anniversary of the Mirror Miracles Association.

We expect between 50 to 60 boats to compete. Children as well as adults. We as a club have committed to supply full support throughout the week. We need definite offers of help for the safety boats x 4, beach masters, various social events etc.

My purpose in sending this missive now is therefore to forewarn members of the event and its impact upon the clubs future vis a vis National events – and to ask whether or not you are able to commit to supporting this event and in what capacity.

We need to be able to plan ahead, SO if you haven’t committed to next years holidays yet, how about booking these dates in your diary and sending me confirmation or otherwise of your ability to assist?

Please, please don’t wait till a week before the event to offer your support WE NEED IT NOW !!!

Many thanks,

Mick Ford

Hello to all our members and especially to all those new families who have joined in the past two to three months. It’s good to see so many young people joining us and wanting to experience the clubs facilities and the various watersports equipment we currently have.

My main purpose in writing is to invite any members who wish to join us at an AT HOME session on SATURDAY 28th SEPTEMBER between 4pm and 7pm.

This will be an opportunity for those of you who wish to access the first floor. See what it’s like now, its potential in the near future, what needs to be done ‘in house’ and of course to soak up the view!!!

We shall be inviting a few of those local people who have supported the clubs development including our Borough and Town Mayors, together with local councillors and business people.

Since access will be via the loft stairs, do remember to wear suitable clothing and shoes folks!

Do come along for a chat, to support your committee, and of course a view of the first floor.

The bar will be open too!!!

Kind regards,

A couple of more snaps from Youth Fun Week – lots more pics on the club Facebook page here



First Day of Youth Fun Week is a success

August 13, 2013 No Comments
Mick wishes to thank all those volunteers who made today so successful. We had 21 Young People on the water despite high winds and a short nasty choppy sea which made sailing impossible even though we did attempt to get the Wayfarer and Micks cat on the water. A short broad reach back n forth convinced Mick it was too risky to take the youngsters out sailing, however we had mastless toppers, SUP Boards and Windsurfers on the water for 3hrs and the kids just loved it. They especially loved joining Tim n Dave on the Safety boat screaming up n down the coastline. Well done to everyone.
A short rest tonight and then we have the Kayaks and possibly sailing tomorrow. We expect another 14 young peeps in the morning !!!
A very tired, but smiley   Commodore Mick
