How silly of us not to realise that as we have howling gales and driving rain, it MUST be August. However, these are just clearing up showers and the weather must surely be fine for Bosham Sailing Club Junior Week 2016?!
This week is, of course, the countdown to JW16. The Club is full of children doing RYA courses and parents working their socks off to get everything ready for the JW briefing this Saturday 6th August and all the sailing and the events for the following week.
So here are some important reminders of what’s going on at your Club.
Double Discount Wednesdays from 18:00 – 21:00
This is proving to be very very successful. We obviously have members who enjoy a drink and bargain. This discount will be available from the bar each Wednesday UNLESS there is an event being held that evening.
BSC Lottery Draw Friday 5th August 19:30
The BSC 50/50 Lottery Draw will take place this Friday (5th) to avoid any unfortunate clash with the JW Last Night Bop which will take place on Friday 12th August. As always, it’s great fun to come and see who the lucky winners will be and if you’d like to find out how to buy tickets for this great 50/50 lottery, then go to the BSC website and click on “Club Lottery”. And you know that you’re going to be hungry after witnessing that much excitement, so stay for supper at your Club.
Supper Friday 5th August 20:00
This week’s menu is
Cod wrapped in Parma ham with pesto and cherry tomato. £12.25
Breast of chicken with fennel, beetroot and carrot salad

All reservations should be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your choice of food. All reservations must be received by 17:00 on Thursday 4th August as the Chef will only cater for the numbers he has received by that time. You are reminded that there is one sitting only and that is served at 20:00.
Bosham Sailing Club Junior Week Briefing 6th August 18:00
For new Club members, Bosham Sailing Club Junior Week is one of the highlights of our Club year and one of the biggest events in Chichester Harbour. The racing is based at Cobnor and the days and evenings are packed with fun. All entrants and their parents will have received an email from R/C Cadets with the week’s timetable, so this is just a brief reminder that registration opens at 17:00 and there is a full briefing for all at 18:00 on Saturday 6th August.
August Dinghy Newsletter
You now have access to two newsletters. Dick Pratt’s very excellent Dinghy Newsletter is available from this link, https://www.boshamsailingclub.com/dinghies/dinghy_newsletters/ or by clicking on the home page slide on the Club website. This gives you all the sailing news and reports from BSC and is essential reading for all BSC sailors.
Weekend Lunch Time Snacks and Sunday BBQ
Why not order your food as you come off the water and before you get changed? This way you give the kitchen time to cook your food and you will not wait so long when you’re super hungry after sailing. The snacks and BBQ are available from 12:00 until 15:00 (ish!).
And now a few reminders and Save the Dates……
There will be no Quiet Thursday Supper on 11th August, this has been moved to Thursday 18th August and for one week only, there will be no Club supper on Friday 12th August.
