The Blackwater Sailing Club are organising a dinghy cruise this weekend the 8th and 9th August.
Dinghies will leave the Blackwater SC at Heybridge at approximately 07:20 and sail round to Burnham on Crouch. They anticipate that they will arrive at Burnham Sailing Club around 17:00 – 18:30 and will then camp overnight in the BSC compound.
The dinghies will be accompanied/supported by 2 or 3 small cruisers.
The return journey will depart the Burnham SC at around 08:15 on Sunday.
Any sailors from Burnham Sailing Club are welcome to join in on one or both legs.

Unfortunately the summer is nearly over and the nights are getting darker which means the end of Friday training for another a year. However following the success of Sunday opening its the club intention to carry on Junior sailing on Sundays as long as the weather permits starting this Sunday the 7th September.
There will be informal training with rescue cover and racing for dinghies if we get enough interest. This will form an Autumn dinghy series.
Please email me to register your interest so that we have an idea of numbers.

Please note that it has just been brought to our attention that the Sailing Program indicates that there will be a race on Wednesday 27th August and junior sailing on Friday 29th August. This is an error.
As you know these dates fall in Burnham Week and as is traditional there will be no sailing from the BSC on the Wednesday or the Friday.
PS – Friday the 29th August is the Commodore’s Cocktail Party to which all members are invited from 7pm onwards.
