Honeypot Lid

As I’m sure you know – the club wouldn’t be able to function without all the amazing volunteers who regularly give up their time and services for free.

With that in mind just want to give a big thanks to Mark Lees for digging out and replacing the cesspit cover.

Not the most glamorous job – but essential all the same – cheers Mark :-)


AED

On behalf of the sailing club I just want to say thank you to everyone who made a donation at Sean Sands funeral service back in March and to let you know that your money went towards buying a defibrillator for the club.

Huge thanks to Hunstanton Round Table who – when they heard our plans – stepped in and more than doubled these funds so that we could also buy a weatherproof, temperature-controlled external cabinet for the defibrillator which now means the AED is available to everyone :-)

Pictured are members of Sean’s family together with members of Hunstanton Round Table. Sean was always a keen supporter of the round table’s Christmas swim – and this year in Sean’s memory they plan to donate the money raised towards the air ambulance and RNLI.

If you’ve never done the Christmas swim before and fancy giving it a go this year – registration forms are available here

 


Sunday’s open day cancelled

Wow – that was a scorcher! :-)

THANK YOU! to everyone that helped out at the taster day today and i hope everyone who took part enjoyed themselves :-)

Just to say we’re going to have to cancel the open day tomorrow (Sunday) as with up to 45mph offshore winds forecast – it would simply be unsafe.

Apologies to anyone who was hoping to come tomorrow….

Massive thanks to inspirational coach Jo Wilson for an awesome Youth Training Weekend putting some of the most promising UK kitesurfing talent through their paces. Two solid days of wind saw them all leave tired but happy! :-)
