Commodore’s Cruise

The “Commodore’s Cruise” will go ahead this Sunday 11th June.

We plan to go to North Fambridge, departing BSC around 11am.

High water (Burnham) is 14:23 so up on the flood and home on the ebb. Thankfully the very windy weather we have had over the past couple of days looks like it will subside a little (av 11kts gusting 15kts). All welcome but  recommended that dinghy sailors are competent (it is quite a long way for small dinghies). Volunteer and a RIB will act as safety.

Commodore’s Cruise 2016 – Sunday June 5th

Hi All,

I am planning the Commodore’s Cruise on Sunday 5th June and intend that we take the flood tide to Fambridge and ebb tide home.

The good news is that this coincides with the River Festival at Fambridge Yacht Haven which is quite a spectacle. HOWEVER, it will be very busy so I need an idea of who and what boats will be joining in from the BSC in order that Fambridge can accommodate us.

The pontoons will be choc-a-bloc with boats, barges and all sorts so it likely that that us visitors will be accommodated (as far as possible) on swinging moorings or in the marina (and we can then walk round from there).

IF dinghies are joining in, depending on weather conditions, they need to be very competent sailors and supervised by parents – it is quite a long way. We will also need one or two safety boats (e.g. Volunteer and BSC1).

We aim to leave about 10:45 (HW Burnham 13:21)

It will be very busy there so please let me know in advance if you intend to participate and the size type of boat you will use so that I can coordinate with Fambridge.

John Saunders,

Commodore, BSC

Safety Cover – Wednesdays

We are looking for members who have PB2 or equivalent experience and are willing to provide regular safety cover for the dinghies on Wednesday evenings. At the moment some of the dinghy racers are foregoing their Wednesday racing to provide cover for the others but it would be nice if a couple of non-racing members (or a couple of teams could take it in turns)could provide the necessary cover.  Any volunteers?  Please contact me or Marcus Collingbourne

Thank you
