Won’t be too long before the 2017 season kicks in – so here’s a brief heads-up as to our plans regards Sailing in 2017.

On a competitive level – the club’s contribution to the annual regatta “North West Norfolk Week” will be the weekend of 5th and 6th of August this year. For more information check out the NWNW website at www.norfolkweek.co.uk

On a club level – we’re planning on holding regular FUN races throughout the season open to both members and non-members. This will kick off on Sun 23rd April with a ‘Refresher’ session open to those wanting to race or to 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 your own boat or club boats if needed.

The planned races will then take place on:

April 30th – race start 10am

May 28th – race start 9am

June 25th – race start 9am

July 30th – race start 11am

August 27th – race start 10am

September 24th – race start 9.30am

If anyone requires more information email Stuart Moore at stuart@ee-scape.com or telephone 01485 579363.

Outside of these dates we also have pencilled in a couple of days where you can come and give sailing a go / take a ‘joyride’ in a boat: namely “Push the boat out” on 21st May and a general club open day on July 1st. More details to follow.

If there’s enough interest / support we will also run some informal sessions between the dates above.

Remember this is community / volunteer run club – so if there’s anything you think we should be doing / anything you’d be willing to help with – please don’t be shy about coming forward :-)

Regards the above and all other events – please keep an eye on the club ‘Events Calendar’ page at www.hunstantonsc.co.uk/events
