Summer BBQ – 8 July 2017 write up

 

We had a lovely time catching up whilst being entertained by the sensational ‘ Muddy Broad Blues Band’ who stopped by at the Pleasure Boat Pub as part of their 2017 Hickling Tour.

Compere and Event Director Keith also did a sterling job with the Quiz, and Raffle. We raised over £50 on the night for the ‘Outbound Trust’ in memory of Windsurfing Dave (Dave Black).

A very enjoyable evening. Well done and many thanks to Keith, Helen, and the MBBB for looking after us on the night.

Improver Training day 11 June 2017

Over 20 members brushed up their skills with help from Gareth, Philip, and Paul. Everything from Rigging to Gybes. Lots of practice time on the water too, and with the developing wind things did get quite challenging. The regulars had a great blast too.

Beginner Windsurfing Course – June 2017

 

The June training course was the highlight of the windsurfing year for me so far. 6 new members did extremely well to grasp the theory and getting to grips with the sport and doing very well as you can see. The 2nd time Richard and Martin have put on a course, and after receiving top marks from the student feedback scores then we are getting quite good at it too! Thanks to the volunteer instructors, Keith, and Paul for giving up their time for free.

Lots of sailing despite the wind blowing from all directions at once! Well done […]

Dave Black – very sad news

Dave passed away yesterday morning (24 May), after several months of declining health. Dave has been a long standing member, on the committee for at least a couple of decades, membership secretary, and a very progressive Club Chairman (2009 to 2014). The Club boat, beginner equipment, and team of RYA instructors are all down to the grants Dave secured for the Club. Our thoughts go out to Judith and family at this difficult time. We will be thinking of Dave when we are next out on the water. Martin.

21 May 2017 Come and Try day write up.

With 25 volunteers (yes 25!), over a hundred visitors, 45 trained and windsurfing then this was another great open day to remember. The team worked hard to squeeze as many visitors on the day as possible, probably a record? So thanks go to Tone, John, Peter, Gillian, Leisl, Wendy, Steve, Paul, Trish, Chris, Neil, Darren, Keith, Richard, Simon, Martin, Wendy, Chris, Jeff, Gillian, Gareth, Dave, and Glen.

Excellent weather, great company – another perfect day at the Club. Let us know if you are interested in the June and July 2 day windsurfing courses. email martinhwc@btinternet.com
