ABOUT HURST CASTLE SAILING CLUB

January 2020 Newsletter

NEWSLETTER March 2020                             

Hello to all members.

We hope you are well and managing to cope in the present situation.

We have brought this “Easter” newsletter forward a bit in order to give you the most up to date information about sailing at Keyhaven, planned activities and also the things that go on behind the scenes to keep the club going.

Inevitably we have to start with the Covid 19 virus and its effects on our sailing and social events.  However, there is other news as well.   There are contributions from Peter Shaw, one of your general Committee members, about an RYA forum he attended recently; from Nick Griffin who is taking a lead on Wednesday racing and from Bill Foster, one of our trustees and an “elder statesman” of the club.   At the age of 80+, Bill has recently taken himself on a round the world trip, all organised by himself.
