Club Satisfaction Survey 2019:

Your club - your chance to have a say Regardless of your reasons for joining the club and how you spend the time when you visit, we want you to feel satisfied. We know it’s not always easy for you to tell us directly how you feel, or what you want us to do differently, so we’re conducting a survey to give you a chance to share your thoughts anonymously.
The survey will be emailed to you, and will be open for the whole of June. It won’t take long to fill in and, if you prefer, you can complete the survey in chunks. Each time you click on the link it will take you back to where you left off. It couldn’t be easier.
We know you’ll be just as interested in the feedback as we are. After the survey, we will share the findings with you and let you know what action we plan to take.
Please take this opportunity to tell us what you think; it’s your chance to have a say and it will be ten minutes well spent! Your club has chosen to take part in this survey which has been organised and funded by the RYA. The survey will be delivered by TLF Research and carried out in accordance with data protection regulations and industry best practice.
In order for you to receive a survey we will need to provide each member's (over 18 years of age) email address. We will not share names, addresses or other detail beyond your email address and this will only be used for one email which will be sent in May. If you do not wish to receive an email with our survey please inform the club secretary James Avery via email secretary@hollowellsc.org.uk. Those members without an email address will be contacted to arrange a paper survey to be completed.

Please ensure you complete your survey and encourage fellow members. Your opinion counts and will shape the future of our club.

Personal Handicap List 2019

These handicaps apply to sailors. All sailors in GOLD Fleet will be handicapped with the PY of the boat they are sailing on the day of competition. All SILVER sailors will have 10% extra on their PY and all BRONZE fleet sailors will enjoy a 15% advantage. If your name is not on the list, and you plan to race this year, my apologies, just let me know (Mark Hope) and I will make amendments. All new members joining the club during the year will start off in Bronze fleet (Unless they are seasoned sailors) and then amended as necessary

Assistant Instructors

It could be YOU! As you know we provide quality RYA approved dinghy training to Adults and Children. Although we rely on a small number of fully qualified Senior and Dinghy Instructors HSC could not function without a Team of Assistant Instructors (AI). Teaching others to sail is a very rewarding experience, and even helps you improve your own sailing. The AI qualification involves just 2 ½ days training, all at HSC and run internally, and free to members. At HSC we now run (simultaneously) two courses, one for Adults and one for the more experienced, and responsible Juniors, such as those who have gone through an external Squad. So if you would like to be more involved in promoting sailing and helping juniors or adults to sail then please put your name forward, and drop an email to Alison Linell. Courses will only run if there are enough attendees.

Hollowell On Holiday

Who has yet to erase the nightmare weather of last years sailing out of the Isle of Bute on the Clyde. It rained every day! Well not to be beaten we are arranging to go back again. WHY! The date is Sat 3rd Aug for one week. Find your own accomodation - find or bring your own boat and a certificate of insanity. Early days yet but speak to Stewart (dutyman) if you think you are mad enough!. 28 members of Hollowell were there last year, most didn't come back!
