UKLA Qualifier at HISC
Huge congratulations to James Curtis who sailed a very consistent series to finish third at the recent ILCA 6 qualifier event at HISC.
This is a ranking event to qualify sailors for various GBR slots.
James, at just 17, was also first male, first U21 and first U19. The high calibre fleet consisted of almost ninety competitors and the two sailors who finished ahead of James are both in the British Sailing Team and chasing places for the next Olympics.

Membership Direct Debits
Unfortunately, due to multiple issues with our bank, direct debits for membership subscriptions were not processed in July and August. We hope to process a catch up for these subscriptions alongside the normal monthly payments in September.
These issues also led to the lottery not being run in August. All very frustrating for everyone at our busiest time of the year.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Dinghy Handicap Racing Survey
Our first sailing survey was emailed to all members recently.
The survey will close this Friday.
