Pie & Pint Night

We had a brilliant night at the Bingo! Thanks to all of those who attended and well done to John Mellard for winning the big prize at the end! Our next social night is a Pie & Pint night with some yummy food and lots of traditional pub games. Poster is attached with all the details. Please ensure that you email to book – you’ll have a choice of pie options upon booking. Vegetarian Option and Child’s option also available.

Cake Stall this Friday

This Friday, in addition to our normal junior training, we will be running a cake stall to help raise money towards the Burnham Belles. This is a group of ladies, many of which are members, who will be doing the Moonwalk on Saturday night to raise money for Breast Cancer charities.

Please come and support this fantastic cause whilst watching our youngest sailors on the water. All members and their friends welcome.

Donations of cakes also needed please contact Fiona on if you are able to help donate a cake, or you can drop off from 4pm on Friday.


Dinghy Park

Hi All, just a quick note about the dinghy park. There’s been a few queries coming in from members about where they can put their boats in the dinghy park.

To make it clearer which spaces are taken, I have spent the past couple of days identifying which boats I can and putting a name tag in all those spaces. This means even if your boat is currently elsewhere, you still have your space reserved and for those looking for space, it is clear where there is one.

There are a number of boats I couldn’t find a name / dinghy park sticker on so hopefully over the next few days I can identify these and pop your name in your space for you – if you haven’t already put your dinghy park sticker on your boat this year, please do so.

We are aware of a number of boats seemingly ‘abandoned’ – steps are being taken to identify owners and move these if needs be which should free up some more space.

More membership packs have been sent this week but if you are still awaiting a dinghy park sticker or would like to pay for a dinghy park space please contact our Membership Secretary Di on

Many thanks



All children have now been assigned a group for Friday night training. If you are unsure which group you are in, please come and see Fiona tomorrow to find out.

The timings for briefing / launching were in the letters given out at the welcome meeting but to reiterate these are as follows:

Beginners – Briefing 5.15pm, launching 5.30pm, finish 7pm
Intermediate – Briefing 5.30pm, launch 5.45pm, finish 7.30pm
Race – Briefing 5.45pm, launch 6pm, finish 8pm

These timings need to be adhered to so that you get the maximum time possible out on the water.


There are a few children wanting escorting between the two clubs. We are happy to provide a safety boat to do this, however this needs to be done with minimal disruption to training.

You MUST email myself on, or post on our Facebook page to let us know you require an escort by 3pm at the latest on that Friday.

If we are aware a child is needing a safety escort, a boat will be at the RCYC at 5.15pm. Unfortunately we cannot wait for anyone not ready to launch and sail at that time.

On arriving at the BSC, you will need to moor up, tally on and attend your briefing.

Please make it known to whomever is on ‘beach’ (normally Fiona or Di) if you require escorting back to the RCYC after training.

Children will be escorted back shortly before training ends, missing the debrief. You will be tallyed off by the safety boat that escorts you back.

Parents will need to make sure that they are at the RCYC ready to collect their child.

I hope that’s all clear! Any questions, just ask one of the Junior Coordinators – Fiona, Marcus, James or Liam.

Happy Sailing!!!
