Hollowell Magic

Please come and add your ideas to the magical mix on Saturday 16 March 2019 at 1pm! We want your suggestions and any offers of support for the social events in 2019. Please drop by in the clubhouse when you are between the seasonal boat preparations and an introduction to Stan the new committee boat. Many hands make light work so they say and this is always true when it comes to having a great time at Hollowell. Please add to the Magic!

Sailing Committee has issued 'Personal Handicap' list 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.

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.

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 Alison. principal@hollowellsc.org.uk The course will only run if there are enough attendees.


Hollowell On Tour - 2019

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!. 38 members of Hollowell were there last year, most didn't come back!
