Friday Night Junior Training

Friday is upon us again. The wind forecast is very light (and sunny (ish!!) with no rain) so should be perfect for our younger sailors. Liam is away this week so Ellen has kindly offered to take out the Topper Sport. Ellen is a coach for the RS Tera Squad, and has plenty of sailing achievements under her belt so they’ll be in very safe hands.

In addition to that, Dan Tribe has very generously offered his yacht to us for the evening (thank you!) so that we can take out those who aren’t on the Topper Sport (don’t worry, the children will be rotated between the two so hopefully should have a turn on each). His daughter Jo will be at the helm and Don assisting. We’ll also probably need a parent or two to hop on board but Jo will let you know this evening.

We’ll have our usual coaches out with the Optimist fleet – Andy & Tony, Ben with the handicap fleet, assisted by James this week and Karen will be taking out any children that don’t want to sail on Volunteer – thanks as always to all of our coaches!

The galley & bar will be open so we look forward to seeing you all later!


St Mathew Cup 2018

Well done the the BSC. we won the St Mathew Cup again for the 25th Time. Big thank you to everyone involved, to the racebox crew Digger and Sally, to Russ Cashel for the loan of Havanna Pappa as our comittee boat our mark layers Marcus and Phillip Harbott our shore crew Jp and Rosemary and our fabulous sailors Ian Grey and Ian Simons in chequemate and Malcom Hutchins and Ben Harden in Lady Penelope. The racing was very close with 3 of the 4 clubs all on equal points at the end of the first race and dispite the strong tides, rain and light shifty winds we managed to get all five races sailed and it was down to the final race to decide the winner. A full report of the day will be published soon.
