Lockdown 3.0 Update

Dear Snowflakers,

We hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, thank you to those of you who were able to support us by coming sailing over the past few weeks, it has been great to see you out on the water. Unfortunately as we entered lockdown again earlier this week, we need to inform you that Snowflake Sailing Club is currently closed and all racing is cancelled.

Access to the Club grounds is not permitted, this includes both the island and the car park, and the launching of boats from the slipway, or use of the crane is not allowed.

Sadly this means we also have to cancel the Sailing School which was scheduled for February half-term. Depending on the level of interest and if restrictions allow, we hope to hold this in the autumn instead, most likely during October half-term. We will update you on our plans as we know more.

As before, the committee will be regularly monitoring the moorings to ensure all boats remain safe and secure. If you have any concerns about your boat or anything else you have stored at the Club please contact us on sfsc1@hotmail.com.

If you are local to Horning and, as part of your daily exercise, you would like to assist with checking the boats and premises, we would welcome your help. To comply with Government and RYA guidelines this needs to be done in a regulated manner so please contact sfsc1@hotmail.com to let us know your availability and to organise a time slot.

We will stay up to date with Government and RYA guidelines and contact you as and when we hear more. We are unsure at present if we will be able to go sailing again this season and although this is very sad our main concern is that you all stay safe and well during this uncertain time.

Best wishes

Your SFSC Committee

Tri-Icicle sponsored by Jeckells the Sailmakers

Following a successful Tri-Icicle sponsored by Jeckells the Sailmakers this year, I would just like to say a few thank you’s; that we would normally do at the prize giving.

Firstly to the competitors, for supporting us during these times: it was a lot of fun watching you all go round and we really couldn’t do it without you!

Secondly, to my committee and fellow Flag Officers for their support before and during the race.  Many hours were spent preparing to run the race in a slightly different way: we look forward to welcoming you all back to the Island another season.

Thirdly, to all the volunteers on the day: galley, guardships, race officers, results, Rupert’s garden (for starting), safety boats, Alastair and Woody for sorting out the radios (with kind permission from Horning Sailing Club).

Well done to everyone for completing the course in the brisk conditions.  The results are out: we have some trophies to find homes for, and the glitzy Tri-Icicle glasses making their way to the top 5.

Finally, we are here all winter at Horning, with the clubhouse and galley open every Sunday.  If you fancy extending your season we offer full and half winter memberships, for details click on https://www.sfsc.co.uk/pages/application/
