I'm at HISC on Thursday night, looks like the wife and son won't be joining, so have a couple of single beds free in the room, regretfully have to head back on Friday after the race, so will miss out on festivities
Planning on heading through lunch time'ish tomorrow (Thursday) and head back Friday afternoon after the 8 mile race, anyone have similar travel plans from London ?
Now I'm confused:
8 mile race
Are they all on or selection or wait and see on the day?
What times kick off?
I'm bringing 10 boards with me for anyone to use in cruise or race.
Catch you later
(Downwind Cancelled - Wind will be rubbish ):)
Everything on course for a full day. John Harvie is making the journey from Jersey along with racing buddy Tim and Elliot Dudley may well be making an appearance - we look forward to welcoming faces new and old to our little island in the sun! I have been training a new paddler amongst our ranks - you'll get to know him as 'Sonny' a 15 time Hungarian C1 Champion in various disciplines, but who after a bad motorbike accident and having moved to the UK has just discovered paddleboarding, stand up style. He doesn't own a board or paddle, so I am the look out for any offers of a suitable loaner
Winds are fresh this morning from the NE but dropping for us tomorrow and the sun is going to push through for the early part of the day.
Registration will be from around 9am. The club does a wicked breakfast. The showers and all facilities are open to guests and competitors, so please make yourself at home. From 11 am Brian from Blue Chip will be gathering his fledglings for a paddle around the Creeks and it's rumored he may be searching for a pub. Big race starts at 12 Noon with all the windsurfers...should be carnage of a kind, but will promise to keep you safe. 4 mile up towards the bridge them home. Late afternoon (5pm) if we have enough interest there will be a shorter race of around 2 miles just to get you thirsty for an evening beer...I may drag the six person wa'a (outrigger canoe) out of mothballs so as we can take it for a spin at some point.
YOU CAN REGISTER ON THE DAY
FUN BOARD DIVISION - I may well shorten your course, weather permitting.
See you there.
Please call if you have any concerns / questions.
After stressing about our turnout numbers, I need not have worried. Many thanks to all those who made the journey to Hayling; Rich Morton and Elliot Dudley for making the drive from Wales, John Harvey and Tim from Jersey and others from as far afield as the Midlands and to all others, thank you. The 7.25mile in near perfect sunny conditions, proved testing, as we added to general chaos of Chichester Harbour. There were some outstanding performances as the results reflect. With our 30 race entrants and Brian's flock who paddled over to Mengham Sailing Club we had around 45 participants. We look forward to welcoming you next year. I will upload some images over next few days, right now I am going to relax

Thanks Steve and Mandy, we had a great couple of days racing, partying, chatting and chilling out. As usual HISC was a great place to stay, they made us very welcome and the sun shone.
The kids thoroughly enjoyed being on the lead boat and even took a few photos but somehow managed to take photos of empty water instead of the racers...
This year was my first race, was a slog on my board but properly enjoyed it, and everyone was very like minded and generally cool - fanx all , looking forward to seeing some pic's!! how lucky where we with the weather!!
