Combined Flying 15’s and 420’s Championships 19th & 20th August 2017

Hello once again to all member of WHSC!

The IODAI Connacht Championships which we hosted in Dunmore East almost two weeks ago was a great success both as an event and as a major fundraiser for our club so a BIG THANK YOU to all who helped to make it happen.

Our last event of the year is now only three weeks away – details of which are as follows:

Flying Fifteen South Coast Championships & 420 Munster Championships
Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th August 2017

We are expecting 40 to 50 boats overall with competitive and exciting racing guaranteed as both classes are fast racing boats.

Once again (last time this year!) volunteers are required to help make this a success for the club.

So if you think you could help out with Registration, Parking, Launching, Committee Boat duties, provide and drive a RIB, Race office, Protect Committee not to mention helping out on the preparation of food and clubhouse services then please email or text me with your preferred area of participation – I would be delighted to have you as part of the team.

JO Call – Oppy or Rib Available Next Week ?

Hi all,

Hope you’re all enjoying this fab weather.

Would anyone who’s not doing a sailing course in their oppy next week or the week after, consider lending or renting their boat to some young sailors who are keen to have a go but don’t yet have a boat? And if anyone is thinking of selling an oppy please let me know and I can put it out there.

Also, any rib owners out there consider lending their rib to the junior sailing courses next week and/or the week after? All our instructors are qualified and certified to drive.

In anticipation, grateful JO!
