End of Season

Dear Snowflakers,

Our season officially ended on Sunday 21st March, and we know many of you will be keen to move your dinghies and keelboats to their summer moorings. In accordance with the current guidelines, we would like to remind you that the club remains closed and access to the island is prohibited.

As it stands, the Government Road Map indicates that from 29th March outdoor sports and leisure facilities will reopen and therefore from this date onwards you may collect your dinghies and keelboats.

We are arranging a tow to NBYC for 2nd April (Good Friday) so please get in touch if you’d like us to take your boat as well.

As ever, we will keep an eye on the Government guidelines and information from the RYA and we will update you as and when this changes.

For now, stay safe, summer sailing is in sight and we look forward to seeing as may of you as possible at the AGM.

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/
