The leaves may be changing colour and the nights drawing in, but there is still plenty going on at your sailing club!
Tuesday evening sailing and Thursday junior sailing continue up until mid October. On Tuesdays there is a safety boat afloat from around 4.30 until dusk, and on Thursdays safety cover is usally available from around 5pm, again until we run out of light!
Saturday sailing also continues, but there are a lot of Open Meetings coming up so please check with the Race Officer before going out.
Open Meeting dates:
Saturday 13th September - Hunts hosts the Youth League! All young Hunts sailors are welcome to take part, you simply need to be able to sail around a simple course. Club boats may be used at the usual hire charge. Please note, the final Youth League meeting of the year will be at our neighbouring club at Pacton, near St Neots on 11th October. Let's send a big team to round things off!

On Sunday 21st September Hunts will be taking part in Bart's Bash, a huge, world wide sailing race dedicated to raising funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation. All club members are encouraged to come along and take part in the race which will start at 11.30. You can either sign up on the Bart's Bash website to collect sponsorship, or you can donate on the day. To find out more go to: Bart's Bash Website
For the non-sailors, we are also organising a Bart's Bash Bake Off, cake competition and cake sale!
All comers Race Training
Once all the opens are over we will again be running our popular race training for all members, novice and experienced sailors, junior and mature. We simply ask that you are able to launch independently, can recover from capsize with minimal assistance and can sail a triangular course. You also need warm kit! These sessions are free to members and will start with participants rigged and ready to go afloat at 9.30am. Sessions will take place on Saturdays 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd, with possibly more in December.
