Weekly Update from HHSC 6th June
Weekly Update from HHSC 6th June 2019
It looks like this coming weekend will be a story of two halves with strong winds currently forecast for Saturday and calmer conditions on Sunday. If you are attending any of the events scheduled for Saturday 8th June (including Oppie Session 3 or the Cadet/Novice Coached race) please check the HHSC Facebook page and / or website on Friday 7th June after 12:00 for updates. The club will post information on whether sailing will take place.
Message from Vice Commodore
The Season has started especially well with lots of people sailing and very successful powerboating and sailing courses. Following on from the success of the Topper Open last month, we are hosting a Laser Open on Sunday June 16th.
I would encourage you to come down to support the event and the competitors, especially those from Hill Head. To help make the event a success we still need volunteers to support the organising team. We are looking for Shore Support, greeters, a Beach Master, registration Officer and Tally Station . I will be ringing round asking for support but you can also fill in a duty in Dutyman or give me a call. We are also looking for a cruiser to act as a Committee Boat.
Many thanks in advance.

Safety Boat Start Times
We are aware there has been some confusion regards arrival times for Safety Boat volunteer duties for club racing. The general guidance is to arrive around 1 hour before the start of the race. The automated reminder from DutyMan should reflect this but if in doubt, please check the Race Start time either in this Weekly Update or in the Sailing Calendar (on the website or in your printed calendar). There are still hard copies of the Calendar available at the club if you haven't picked one up yet.
