HCSC NEWSLETTER January 2021
Hello and best wishes to all our members for the coming year. How different that feels this year! Little did we know in 2020 what was ahead of us. However, we must keep on sailing both physically and mentally. Even since I have started this newsletter things have changed again in terms of the latest rules. The newsletter will bring you up to date on the new Covid 19 restrictions on sailing, news of behind the scenes work that keeps the club going, including the AGM later this year, and some changes of personnel. Also reports of recent activities and some light entertainment.

NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2020
Hello and welcome to the last newsletter of 2020. Am I alone in feeling glad to see 2020 end……...and to start looking forward to better times next year?
Anyway, we start with the good news that we opened again from December 2nd! Toilets, dinghy park, garden and veranda, club boats. Not back to normal but to where we were in October with social distancing, sanitising and groups of only 6 people at most. Sorry the clubhouse, including changing rooms and showers, remain closed. We do recognise that a hot shower is very welcome after winter sailing but the problem remains one of making and keeping the atmosphere “Covid 19 secure”.
Names and Faces
Hurst Castle Sailing Club has a self-help philosophy and is run managed and operated by members. We have no permanent staff and members appoint a General Committee to oversee the running of the club premises, equipment and events drawing on volunteers from the membership. The General Committee for 2019/2020 is:-
The initiative for the formation of Hurst Castle Sailing Club must go to Mr. Roy Knight and Mr. George Andrews, who together approached Major I. M. Bellairs early in 1938 with their ideas, with the result that the inaugural General Meeting took place at the Toc H Hut in Milford-on-Sea on Wednesday, 20th April 1938.
