These working parties are both to fix fencing around the spit and club side dinghy parks.

Many hands make light work... the bar will be open from 12pm

Push The Boat Out

Our annual PTBO is just around the corner and this event requires as many helpers as we can muster. We are looking for sailors to helm boats and kitchen helpers as well as shore support. Kayaking will start the day at 9am followed by Sailing, paddle boarding and cruiser trips starting at 11 am until 2.30 pm.

If you can help please contact Kirsty @ or Margaret Hyde @

If you are able to please could you share the advert on our Facebook page with all your friends and families.

Thank you!


Residents of Stubbington may have received a copy of the local magazine "Stubbington Choice". Eagle-eyed observers will have spotted the error in the HHSC advert promoting our Push the Boat Out Event in May. The date should have read SUNDAY 5th May (& not Saturday). The day starts at 9am. Please do all you can to share the correct DAY with your friends, family and acquaintances in the local community.


Club Notices


The social that was scheduled for the 27th April has had to be cancelled as we now realise that it clashes with 2 sailing events starting at 1730 &1800. May is also a busy month, however, the House team aim to have a social on Friday 17th May. Meanwhile please support your Ladies who Launch on Friday 26th April (Gentlemen are also welcome to these events..!)

Dinghy Park Stickers

A reminder to all outstanding boat, trailer and tender owners to collect their stickers from the club lounge to enable management of your parking spaces.

Golf Clubs!

GOLFERS, please bring your unused irons to the club for recycling - we convert the handle grips to dinghy tiller extensions.


On completion of Sea Kayak Leader Training one a scout leaders turned his VHF Radio off, packed up his kit and went for his debrief. Driving to the hotel he could hear an alarm going off. His VHF had turned itself on and started transmitting an automatic distress call. The radio had totally locked out and he had no functionality.

He stopped the car and called the coastguard and they believed that the distress call had not been confirmed or received at that time. Apparently it happens alot with hand helds when they get wet. Even when they are waterproof!!

After eating his evening meal, he went back to his room to find that his radio had once again turned itself on and had transmitted another distress call that had been recieved and acknowledged for 30 minutes! He called the Coastguard, confirmed his details, cancelled the distress call and removed the battery.

The set has been sent back to Standard Horizon and he is waiting to hear what is the issue.
