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.

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
