Friday Evening Galley Duty

Hi All,

Our Friday night Junior sailing commences this week and we are putting together a rota for Galley duty. We only have 22 sessions to cover so with two people in the galley each week, only need 44 volunteers.

We have created a poll for members to select which sessions they are able to do. Please volunteer if you can by filling out the poll….

Dinghy Park – unidentified boats

Good afternoon,

With the sailing season about to start, a team of us have spent a great many hours sorting the dinghy park and tidying the boats. There are a few boats left where we are unsure of the owner. Please see the attached document and if any of the boats pictured belong to you, or you know the owner, please contact me on

EDIT: There is also a blue wayfarer, sail number 9047 that we are unsure of the owner.

Also, you have not yet paid this years dinghy park fee for your boat, please do so as soon as possible.

Many thanks

Junior Training – Pre Season Meet

Calling all Junior Parents!

The new season of sailing is almost upon us, work has commenced on repairing our pontoon and we plan to be up and running on Friday  13th April.

In preparation, we would like to invite you and your children to a Pre Season Meeting on Wednesday 28th March at 6pm. This will give you the opportunity to hear our plans for the coming season, meet your coaches, volunteer for helping out (always important!) and have a catch up with your sailing friends.

Hope to see you all there!

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
