PERSONAL HANDICAP LIST FOR 2019

The Sailing Committee has decided the following fleets for all Personal Handicap events for 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. VIEW LIST HERE


Top sailing clubs awarded for developing tomorrow’s sailing stars

Fifteen sailing clubs have been chosen to become the country’s first British Youth Sailing (BYS) Recognised Clubs as part of a new scheme celebrating excellence in developing sailing stars of the future. The Recognised Clubs initiative sees the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) working alongside sailing clubs around the country to promote grassroots sailing and support junior and youth sailors as they develop racing skills.

The inaugural Recognised Clubs list now includs Hollowell Sailing Club, Northampton.

Chris Atherton, the RYA’s senior high performance manager, said: “The key challenge for our sport is to encourage more young people to start participating in sailing and progress into racing.

The BYS Recognised Club status distinguishes those sailing clubs with a commitment to the development of junior and youth racing and race training, which is delivered in a safe and fun environment.

NEAR MISS PROCEDURE

You can read the full document here..To summarise, if you see or are involved in an incident which might have caused injury or damage to property, you should record it on the relevant form which then should be placed in the log (kitchen shelves). This is to ensure that we continue to monitor and improve safety at the club. If you feel that the matter is urgent you can email the information to principal(AT)hollowellsc.org.uk


NEW FACEBOOK GROUP - HOLLOWELL MEMBERS

There is a new Facebook group for Hollowell's duty- busting, hard-working, unsinkable, sailors - it is a private closed group for grumpies, grumbles, general chit-chat, gossip or starting rumours.

In order to join, log onto Facebook, search for Hollowell Members and click on Join Group. One of the admins will add you to the group.


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. More details regarding eligibility and who is able to teach which aspects of the RYA syllabus can be found here.

The course will run in March 2019, with dates to be advised, and places will be limited. (To be clear for those of you of a certain young age the Course itself is next year).

Anyone wishing to do the 2019 Course should also pass a Sailing Pre-Assessment. In previous years people were a little rusty at the beginning of the year so the pre-Assessment for the 2019 AI course will take place in November

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 Clive. The course will only run if there are enough attendees.
