With the sailing season nearly upon us I thought I would update you with whats happening at the club.
Since the storm wiped out our pontoon in January we have been very busy getting things in place so that it can be restored to its former glory. We are having new flooring placed on the ramp section to stop the wind getting underneath the pontoon. The existing piles are being straigthened, new piles being installed on the upstream side and the pontoon strenghtened with additional chains down each side. Everything is now in place for the work to commence and should be completed over the next few weeks.
We have also started work on the new accessible toilet and again this should be completed around the begining of April.
I would also like to remind you that membership fees were due in January and that your membership needs to be in place before you can sail or race at the club.
Finally I would like to thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the club soon.
The Social Committee would like to invite you to join us at our Quiz Night. All details can be found on the attached poster. If you would like to reserve a table, please email email@example.com – maximum team size of 6 people. Hope to see lots of you there!

Hi, Just a quick reminder that it is our Pie & Pint night this coming Friday. All bookings will need to be made by Wednesday. If you missed it the first time, all info is on the attached Poster
Pie Choices are;
Steak & Ale; Chicken, Ham Hock & Leek; Pulled Pork & Cider; Homity Pie *vegetarian* (potato, onion, cheese in creamy cheese sauce).
I am sure that most members are already aware that the pontoon suffered serious damage early yesterday morning in the high winds.
We would like to assure all members that we are taking all necessary steps to expedite appropriate repairs and modifications.
We will keep you updated.
I would like to say thanks to members and friends who helped out yesterday in making things secure, particularly to the guys from Rice and Coles, Mark Flynn for getting his rib muddy and Adrian Archer (who must have done the equivalent of 2 Maldon mud races).
REMINDER : The Burnham on Crouch Sailing Club Annual General Meeting will be held in the clubhouse on Sunday 28th January 2018 at 3.00pm.

Just a reminder that we are running another Bingo Night next Wednesday evening (17th Jan). This was very popular last time, so please do let me know if you are thinking of coming and I will reserve a table for you and your friends.
Please see attached poster for details…..
It is with regret that due to the extremely unfavourable weather forecast for tomorrow we have taken the decision to postpone the planned BSC Icicle Race.
We hope to run it early in the New Year.
