Pie & Pint Night

We had a brilliant night at the Bingo! Thanks to all of those who attended and well done to John Mellard for winning the big prize at the end! Our next social night is a Pie & Pint night with some yummy food and lots of traditional pub games. Poster is attached with all the details. Please ensure that you email to book – you’ll have a choice of pie options upon booking. Vegetarian Option and Child’s option also available.

Commodore’s Cruise

The “Commodore’s Cruise” will go ahead this Sunday 11th June.

We plan to go to North Fambridge, departing BSC around 11am.

High water (Burnham) is 14:23 so up on the flood and home on the ebb. Thankfully the very windy weather we have had over the past couple of days looks like it will subside a little (av 11kts gusting 15kts). All welcome but  recommended that dinghy sailors are competent (it is quite a long way for small dinghies). Volunteer and a RIB will act as safety.
