Sailing season 2013 is here

It’s time to kick-off season 2013 for Audi HSS Sailing Center! As we cater to both match racing and fleet racing we have renamed ourselves: what was previously Audi HSS Match Race Center is now Audi HSS Sailing Center, or SC for short.”

To keep up with the latest info and discussions follow what happens in Facebook. Our fan-page is here: https://www.facebook.com/hssmatchracecenter and a group for all our members is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/440547229319850/

Basic info about the Sailing Center and how things work has been gathered here:http://www.sailingcenter.fi/members/getting-started

The schedule for the whole of season 2013 is now ready, so start making reservations in your calendar http://www.sailingcenter.fi/calendar-events.The booking system for boats will be launched closer to the start of the season, so don’t book boats yet.

A few upcoming events from the calendar: free open lectures on racing and tactics (note that tomorrow’s lecture 19.3. has been cancelled, so the first one is on 26.3.), an umpirecourse, and a free try out day for all our boats. See https://www.facebook.com/hssmatchracecenter/events
