HISC Centenary 1921 - 2021

The HISC Centenary is looming and we are calling on all members to get involved.

The Centenary Committee has been beavering away in the background, pulling together a number of exciting projects and ideas that will formulate the backbone of the Centenary Year in 2021.

Date for your Diary

Saturday 28 November 2020 - Centenary Reception with Centenary Book and Clothing Launch.

There are two projects in particular that would greatly benefit from member contributions . . .

The Trophy for the Centenary Regatta

A race under sail, open to all members Details are still to be confirmed, but so far ideas include:

• A single mass start line

• Minimum fixed distance course inside and outside the harbour

• Cannot be cancelled, postponed or abandoned

• To be repeated only on “special occasions”

We are currently raising funds to invest in a beautiful trophy for the occasion: it must be inspirational, something that current and future club sailors will aspire towards and it must be representative of 100 years of HISC

The Legacy Project

One long standing Centenary plan is to leave something behind to mark the occasion - a gift to the club.

In days of old this might have been a new wing on the cricket pavilion or a centenary extension to the pontoon.

We welcome any ideas from members about what the Legacy Project could involve.

Current suggestions include:

• An art work, either a sculpture or painting

• A clock tower, something useful for future sailors

• A water feature, something impressive
