If you shop in Hunstanton or Heacham Tesco’s – keep an eye out for the ‘Bags of Help’ section where you can vote for three local projects – one of which is for some new SUP’s for Hunstanton Sailing Club  :-)

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…

  • The Bags of Help initiative is supported by money from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags in Tesco stores.
  • So far Bags of Help has awarded over £28.5 million to  more than 4,000 community projects.
  • For more information please visit: www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

Quick reminder that the club sailing season kicks off this Sunday (23rd).
We’ve switched the starting time to the afternoon to better suit the tides – meet down the club at 2pm :-)
 
This is an open session to those wanting to race for fun / or dust off the cobwebs.
 
Participants need to be capable of sailing from the shore and back to the shore unsupervised in moderate conditions. Those that participated in at least two of the training sessions last year should be ok to join in. Use of own boat or club boats if you don’t have your own.
 
Hopefully see you there!
