STARTING Wednesday 22nd May at 5 pm we will have Taster sessions at the club.
Much as in the past, we will arrange Dinghy Sailing, Windsurfing,Kiting Supp Boards etc for friends and family.We can jointly arrange to finish the evenings with a Barbie too!!!
We could possibly gain some funding support from the RYA if we can arrange 10 sessions ( could include Saturday AMs) and include adult learners too. Robbie Bell of the RYA might be able to arrange an assistant instructors course for 6 members . This would be over 2 days during June if there is sufficient interest.
Let me know if you wish to come down on the Wednesdays and if you would like to be one of the 6 Assistant Instructor trainees.

Saturday 20th April saw the sailing club host a fantastic, free, deepwater packdown training day in association with Hunstanton Watersports and Hunstanton RNLI
here’s a short video summary of the day
Hi again folks.
Sunday 14th April saw the arrival of 12 Kings Lynn Sea Cadets all eager to get on the water in some form or another. Unfortunately we had high winds all day though by mid afternoon we had them down on the beach with the help of Beth Harding , Dad Dave, Tim Starling, Steve Hunt n Dave Gumb. They were able to experience Windsurfing, sup boarding and would you believe SWIMMING Brrrr.
We managed a healthy Barbecue Thanks to Carol, Sandra and Sue and at the end of the day the Cadets were asking to come back for more in the future !!! A great day despite the weather. Thanks go to Bob Panrucker of the Sea Cadets for organising their trip to Sunny Hunny.
Dont forget the AGM this Sunday at the Fire Station 3pm folks. See you there .
Hi folks and welcome to our new website. This has come about by the good offices of member Marcus and his Son Jack together with Liz Pendleton and John Matthews. I shall try to do an update Monthly now and this should mean I no longer need send out missives via email to 150 plus members forgetting to delete all those email addresses . I apologise if you have been upset by my inability to comprehend the technicalities of the system and did not delete your email address before clicking SEND. !!!
The AGM is on 21st April 3pm at the Hunstanton Fire Station. You will have all received the Agenda and papers so do come along and help us decide if there should be a CLUB NAME CHANGE or not. Dont forget you can arrange for a proxy vote if you are unable to attend.
The New Committee boat Sarah D (see photo opposite) is almost ready for launch. Thanks to all who came down last Sunday and helped get the Trailer base ready and in situ. Will Rockliffe has done a brilliant job of building the trailer and all it needs now are for the wheels to be fitted and a repaint. So do contact Tim Starling and find out how/when you can help.
The portable cabin is in situ and the keys are in the coded locked box on the front by the door. Its the same code you used for your keys safekeeping in the past. If anyone is not aware of that code please phone or email Tim Starling or me, as we don’t want it broadcast to the world for security reasons.
This coming Sunday 14th April, we are hosting a contingent of Sea Cadets from Kings Lynn. 12 -14 of them will be at the club by 10am so we need all the help we can muster to ensure they have a great time, including a possible BBQ if the weather is kind to us. We want to assist as many as possible to get on the water during the day with their qualified sailing instructor Bob Panrucker and colleagues . So come along and show them what a warm family friendly club we are.
