Just to let everyone know there will be NO JUNIOR SAILING on 24th August & 31st August due to Burnham Week events. 

There is sailing as normal this Friday 17th, and sailing will resume on Friday 7th September. 

Saturday 8th September is our Junior Regatta Day – all juniors are invited – there will be fun & games for all and racing for both our older and younger sailors (there will even be a little race for those new to the optimist). More info to follow but pop the date in your diary.

As part of the club’s commitment to Burnham Week, we are on protest duty on the Monday and Thursday of Burnham Week. We need to provide two committees each time, so need 6 volunteers per day.. if you can help please email me by Friday with your preferred day, mobile phone number so that you can be contacted if required, and if you feel able to chair a committee please indicate this too. Thank you in advance for your support .  You can contact me at vicecommodore@burnhamsc.co.uk

Refill Scheme

I have signed Burnham Sailing Club up to the new #refillessex scheme. This is a drive to reduce plastic waste. Businesses and organisations put a sticker in their window to tell members of the public they are welcome to come in with their refillable bottle and get it filled with tap water for free.

Obviously we can only fill bottles when we’re open but hopefully it’s a small step in us helping reduce plastic waste.

You can get the refill app on your phone which will tell you which establishments nearby will allow you to refill your bottle. I’ve added BSC and it’s just pending approval.
