Hi everyone,


Almost the new season!

Under two weeks to go until we can be back at Horning enjoying being on the water – and we really hope that you will be able to join us for the start of our season.  The club site will be reopening next Monday 29th March in line with Government guidelines, and club racing will begin the following weekend, on Sunday 4th April, on Hoveton Little Broad, with an Easter Monday (5th April) Down River Race to Thurne.  We will be sending further information on accessing the site and how activities/racing will work this year shortly, so please look out for this arriving soon.  If visiting the Club after the 29th, please be aware that we currently have some works taking place to improve the quay heading around the Yeoman Crane, so please take care in this area.

HSC Work Parties

We are planning to have a work party on Saturday 3rd April, with small groups adhering to the rule of 6.  There are a number of tasks that we will need to do on this day – including tidying up the site, putting up the tent (to give us more outside space) and cleaning the outside of the Clubhouse.  We would be truly grateful for your help on that day – and if you can offer your time please could you email Will on vice-commodore@horning-sailing.club and also let him know whether there is a small group (of up to 6) that you would be happy to work with as a team.  Although we are unable to offer the customary lunches on this occasion, we will be very grateful for your assistance, even if just for a short while.


Start of Season social

Plans are in full swing for our Online Rigging Out Social to take place via Zoom.  Incorporating the most popular parts of last year’s socials, including quizzes, bingo & a scavenger hunt, there will be fun for everyone!  It will start at 7.30pm this Saturday (27th March).  Don’t forget to decorate your rooms and yourselves - in nautical fashion to kick off the season in style and catch up with your sailing friends!



Club Update

Our fortnightly Management Meetings have continued, to help us plan for this year and beyond.  We have also had a Training Centre Meeting and will send an update shortly; you’ll be pleased to hear that yes – we are planning for training to take place this year!  We are also shortly going to purchase two club paddleboards – and whilst on that topic, if anyone already is, or would be interested in becoming a Paddleboard instructor, please could you email me on commodore@horning-sailing.club


Finally, don’t forget to follow Horning Sailing Club on social media for our latest news and updates – we’re on Facebook (page here, group here), Twitter and Instagram.


Looking forward to seeing you soon, either online or in person!
