HSS Windsurfing Area Project 2023

My Fellow Windsurfers and Sailors,

We are excited to announce that we are embarking on a project to develop the windsurfing area in HSS. The club has allocated the necessary funds required for this development. As a community, we have identified the need to enhance this area to accommodate the growing interest in windsurfing and to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our existing and future members.

To make this project a success, we need volunteers who would like to help lead the development efforts. We believe that there are quite many of you who have the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to make a meaningful contribution to this project.

As a volunteer, you will receive the full 26 Talkoo points for the season, additionally you will have the opportunity to work with a team of like-minded individuals who share your passion for windsurfing and sailing. You will also gain valuable leadership experience as you oversee the development efforts and ensure that the project meets its goals and objectives.

We essentially need volunteers for two roles:

  1. Project Manager

  2. Project Architect

Some of the key responsibilities of the volunteers leading this project are included in the annexure at bottom.

We believe that this project has the potential to transform the windsurfing area in our club and to provide a great experience for our members. We also recognize that we cannot achieve this without the dedication and support of our volunteers. The deadline to volunteer would be 19th of March. Post which if we do not have any volunteers we would need to suspend the project.

If you are interested in leading this project or would like to learn more about it, please do not hesitate to contact me (vijeth21@gmail.com) or Rosa(rosa@helsinkisailing.com) or Dipesh (dipesh@helsinkisailing.com). We look forward to working with you to make this project a success.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our club.
