There’s plenty of sailing available over this weekend, with Classic Dayboats racing on Saturday morning and Club racing on Sunday. However, yet again we need people to help with the racing on Sunday.
DutyMan Sunday 6th August
We are very short of help with duties on Sunday. We need Race Officer Assistants, Power Boat Drivers and Crews. If you can help, please email email@example.com or sign up via DutyMan. Thank you.
And after all that exertion, you’ll definitely want a Sunday Carvery. Our chef served over 50 delicious lunches last week, so to make sure you get a meal you must reserve your place.
Carvery Sunday 6th August 13:00
To make sure that you have a cracking good lunch on Sunday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Saturday 5th August to reserve your places.
BSC Child Protection Safeguarding & Welfare Officer
Our Commodore writes: For many years, the Club has been very effectively supported by Jono Prosser as our Child Protection Safeguarding and Welfare Officer. However, Jono has now decided to relinquish this role and the whole Club thanks Jono for his years of service and wise guidance.
The Flag Officers are delighted to be able to announce that Karen Phillips has agreed to take on the role of Club Safeguarding Officer and from 1 August 2017 Karen will be the person who is designated in the Club’s Child and Vulnerable Adult Safeguarding Policies.
Please note that the Sailing Committee notes from the meeting on Sunday 23rd July, are now on the Club website.
And now the weekly reminders…

Bosham Sailing Club Regatta Saturday 26th August
This date must go in your diary. It’s an event for every Club member to get involved with. You can compete on the day and every bit as importantly, there is plenty of scope for you to do a duty on the day and so get included that way. Loads of help is needed on the day to make the Regatta the success that it is. There are duties on and off the water, from power boat drivers to tea maker to recorder. If you can help, please sign up via DutyMan or contact David Williams at email@example.com
There will be a pre Regatta supper on the Friday before and there will be live music at the Bosham Sailing Club Summer Party following the Regatta on Saturday 26th August. There is a great deal of information already on the Club website or by following this link http://www.boshamsailingclub.com/files/404/2017/BSC_Regatta_NoR_2017_b.pdf and more will follow next week.
Classic Boat Revival 2nd – 3rd September
