We’ve got some really exciting things to tell you about and one of the most exciting is that now the warmer weather is back, we’ve got heating available again in the Office here at the Club!
So firstly food.
It is with great pleasure that the Flag Officers of Bosham Sailing Club announce the appointment of John Gallagher as our new Club chef. John comes with a myriad of experience in catering for sailing clubs and for large corporate events and just as importantly, he is extremely enthusiastic about this Club and the scope he sees available to enhance our Club events with some delicious food. He sources locally as many of his ingredients as feasible and he will ensure that the menus he offers are varied and interesting.
John will work closely with Mark, our Club steward and between them they will be an excellent team.
Johnnie has cooked at the Club for the past two Fridays, just to make sure that he can cope with our rather quaint kitchen and to make sure that the Club members will enjoy his cooking. And the comments from the diners have been full of praise. Members are bidding a fond farewell to their toes as Johnnie’s delicious desserts are going down a storm!

Your Club is THE place to be this Saturday evening as there is Happy Hour, the Club Draw and Rugby Six Nations Final on the big screen. Happy hour starts at 18:30 which will make the rugby fans happy. The Club draw, which stands at £240 can be won if you’re at the Club at 19:30 and that could make somebody very happy.

And if England win this, that will make lots and lots of people happy. What a sunny place your Club will be that evening!
Cadet Junior Regatta Friday 25th March
The first racing of the season belongs to the cadets and in the Clubhouse afterwards at 17:00 is the Cadet New Season Meeting which will be an opportunity for you to meet some Class Captains and Flag Officers.
Here we go. We still need drivers and crew for the Junior Regatta. Please sign up on DutyMan or email the office and we will put you in for a duty.

Sarah will officially open our new changing facilities at 16:30 on Saturday 26th March and afterwards, she will give a talk entitled “My Olympic Journey” which will be fascinating and undoubtedly, well attended.
