Due to the severe weather forecast for this afternoon and evening there will be NO racing tonight Wednesday 6th of May.
However, the clubhouse will be open as usual for food, ale, refreshments and social.
If you know of anyone in your fleet who is unlikely to see this message could you please let them know.

The 2015 sailing season kicks off with the Practise Race NEXT WEEK – 15th April 2015.
The ale is ordered (Pucks Folly again), the wine is being chilled, Alan has his finger on the start button in the race box and our new caterers, Sharina and Yim, are excited about the prospect of providing us with some delicious meals throughout the season.
Below is the menu for the first week. If you wish to be sure about getting your first choice then book with them by phone or text – details are on the poster.
Menu – Wednesday April 15
Calling all BSC Juniors!
The sailing season is nearly upon us and we will be holding a short briefing / introductory meeting THIS Friday, April 10th at 6pm at the Clubhouse.
The purpose of the meeting is to introduce you to your coaches / group leaders and for you to find out what you will be doing throughout the year. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have.
We look forward to seeing you (and a parent / parents) on Friday!

BSC Icicle Race Sunday 28th December – 11am start*
All dinghy classes welcome
Mulled Wine and Mince Pies in the clubhouse afterwards.
If anyone wants to race and chase away those post-Christmas Blues please email Marcus at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Weather permitting and will only take place if we have sufficient numbers.
Just a quick reminder that the Junior / Dinghy prize giving will be taking place this Sunday the start time is now around 1600 as the club is hosting Feva training this weekend so the prize giving will be after the training. i look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.
The junior prize giving for the 2014 season will be held at the BSC on Sunday 23rd at 1500, this will be an afternoon tea event. We will be presenting the dinghy prizes for the Wednesday evening series and the special prizes for Friday night training. Any offers of cakes etc for the event will be welcome.
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.
Further to the previous posting about there being no Wednesday night racing on the 27th due to Burnham Week, I can confirm that Race 4 of the Summer Series will be held on the 3rd September and the Crew’s Race will be pushed back to the 10th September.
See you on the “Burnham Line”.
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.
