Vale Sasha Hawgood

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 22nd January, a large number of friends joined the Hawgood family at Brisbane Sailing Squadron to farewell the late Sasha Hawgood, a much loved member of the club.

Sasha’s association with BSS dates back 20 years. Her junior sailing commenced in Sabots, during which time Sasha won two club championships. She also represented the club at interstate championships. Sasha then moved on to Lasers and sailed right through to 2017, despite a 10 year battle with brain cancer.

She will be sorely missed by all associated with the club and the wider sailing community. The Committee and members extend their condolences to Sue, Geoff and families.

R.I.P. Sasha Hawgood



Notice Board

"Try Sailing Day"

Sun 25th Nov 2018

No prior sailing experience is required. The focus will be on fun as participants are given the opportunity to meet young sailors who already enjoy sailing as a sport, starting with club racing and with the potential to progress to state and national championships, and maybe one day the Olympics. They will learn about the Sabot class as a great introductory boat for junior sailors, either 2 up in the boat at entry level and then 1 up though to around 15 years of age. The registered kids will get to experience on-water sailing activities with expert instructors to give them a taste of just how much fun it can be to master the basic skills of sailing. There will be a free sausage sizzle for participants.
