HPO Contact in San Diego

Success at last!

I have just heard from our HPO in San Diego that LSC member Mark Blunden is in America on business and has got in touch with Simon Clark, our HPO, to see if there was a way for him to get out sailing. Simon will be taking Mark for the day in his own boat.

This is what I like to hear, so please, continue the good work of contacting our HPOs worldwide whenever you are on holiday.

Getting in contact with our HPOs

May I remind all LSC Members sailing around the coastline and visiting various wonderful places this summer to make it your goal - TO GET IN TOUCH WITH AS MANY HPOs AS POSSIBLE!   They are there for you - do make their day and give them the feeling of belonging to the Little Ship Club - too often they get missed or ignored.  Do make contact with the HPOs - they would all love to meet and hear from you!!

We have SHEEMAUN and SUHAILI  in the River Pageant on Sunday 3 June - do give them a wave if you happen to be passing down river on that day or are at the Club celebrating in style.
