The BSC is hosting the Coached Regatta and On boarding fleets and we will need lots of volunteers to help make the event flow smoothly.

If anyone would like to help out please can you email RYAregatta@burnhamsc.co.uk We need car park marshals to help with parking, Galley Staff, PB2 drivers,Safety crew, people to help with launching and recovery of boats and offers of cakes etc, Don’t be Shy, the more people we get the less work we all have to do.
