Ship Race – 14th August

Ship Race – 14th August

HSSC’s long distance race to the Ship Inn in Sandgate is planned this year for Sunday 14th August. The Ship Race is one of the big events in the Club’s calendar, so please do make an effort to join the fleet.

Racing is open to Windsurfers and Sailors. Start time is 13:00 with a compulsory safety briefing for all competitors at 12:30.

Entry fee is £5 per person, which includes a BBQ on arrival at the Ship kindly provided my landlord Stuart Wiffen, who will also present the prizes.

Those that don’t fancy sailing down are welcome to come and watch the action from the beach at Sandgate. Feel free to kitesurf, kayak, SUP, cycle even swim down as well!

If you intend to participate it would be helpful if you would let Anthony know beforehand, either at the club or by email so that we have an idea of numbers.
