Cadet week is primarily for those children who have attended the Saturday morning cadet sessions. Whilst we welcome additional participants, the number of places we can offer is limited by the resources we have available, so priority will be given to those cadets who attend the Saturday sessions or participate in the club racing.

Please complete the forms and return them by midday 4th July – we will not be able to accept late applications.

Kind regards
Support our Cadets for the Topper World Championships
Some of the Club’s cadets are planning to go to Lake Garda, Italy for the Topper World Championships 2015.

They have been training hard throughout the winter under the expert tutorage of Dave Cockerill, often out on the water in freezing and blustery conditions.

To help fund their trip they are holding a ‘Car Wash & Cake’ morning this coming Sunday (15th March), at Hill Head Sailing Club, 9.30am – 12.30pm.

While your car is being washed, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a homemade cake while admiring the panoramic view of The Solent.

Thanks for your support!

Cadet Galley Rota
The cadet season is nearly upon us with the first meeting on the 19th April. Running separately to the rota already arranged by Grace is the galley rota as attached. Please can I ask that 2 volunteers help each Saturday morning with serving teas/ coffees, cakes and rolls. We managed to make £1200 last season for cadets and I have had great feedback on how much the service is appreciated. Mickey needs use of the galley when there are open meetings on so I do not need help on those occasions. Unfortunately the galley may need to run on an ad hoc basis this season if I cannot fill all the volunteer slots, as it really is too much for one person to man. If you are able to help please contact me at bentraceywales@talktalk.net Looking forward to seeing you all at the start of the season,
