The much missed Round the Island event in Hayling Island is back thanks to the Hayling Island Sailing Club.
Organized by the HISC and sponsored by no other than Club Vass, one of the best windsurfing holiday companies, the event will come back on the 10th of April (Good Friday of the Easter weekend).
This event is looking like a great opportunity for beginners and experienced sailors to push their limits and have a lot of fun. It is all planned to be a good fun event for the whole family. There will be a lot of onshore entertainment and a big party at the end, and the HISC is offering a huge range of facilities to accommodate you and your family.
There will be different fleets, for beginners and experts. A Bronze Fleet will look after beginners, and will sail up to Emsworth and back to the Club. The Silver Fleet will sail from the Club to the Ferry Boat Inn at the mouth of Langstone Harbour, and the Gold Fleet will sail all the way around. There will also be many different pick up points in case you cant make it around, so don’t worry too much about it and just try to do your best.
There is a limited number of entries available, only 150, so if you are thinking about doing this fantastic challenge, send your entry early via www.hisc.co.uk , where you will find the full notice of race. You can also call the club if you want on 023920 463768. The entry fee for the event is £25.00, and this includes event entry, a drink and barbeque voucher, and entry to the evening party. We are sure this is going to be a fun windsurfing event for the whole family!
