Members Information

Members of HSC - please make every effort to get involved. Even if you cannot make it on the day please do try and put out posters and leaflets.

There are a number of ways to help:

  • Download posters (see bottom) and get them pinned up somewhere useful. There is a large assortment available at the clubhouse.
  • Book a job slot on DutyMan.
  • If you are coming down - please DO NOT PARK in the big car park. Leave your car in the top field or put it off the road, down by the boats.
  • Please rig your boat and have it on display on the shore - better still go for a sail!
  • If you can only attend for a short while - go to someone (tea bar, for example) and give them a 30 min break
