DIARY DATE 1st April 2017

IMPORTANT

There will be a work party at the BSC on Saturday April 1st.

There are a lot of jobs to do inside and outside to get the club ready for the sailing season.  Please come along -it is very sociable and a great way to “bond” with YOUR club,  be sociable and maybe meet some new fellow club members.  Refreshments (tea, coffee, bacon butties and maybe an odd doughnut or two) provided.

Many hands make light work so please help out – it would be great to see some new faces as well as the “old faithful’s”.

Start time 9.30am (put some general tools in the boot of your car if you have any).

A note on the pontoon – we are working hard to get this sorted and are aiming to have it done by the start of the sailing season. I will report in more details soon.

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
