Excuse us if we seem to be repeating ourselves but the beautiful sunny weather brought light winds... however that did not deter 19 intrepid BSC boats from venturing to Itchenor SC’s Regatta on Saturday and some of our very own returned triumphant. The postponed Clarina Cup Race was run on Sunday with a bit more breeze taking a splendid cross-section of our fleets all the way to Calvert, at the mouth of the harbour. There must have been some very tired BSC sailors on Sunday night.
If you were around the club last week you will have seen it awash with over 50 cadets taking part in all levels of courses from beginners to racing. Our very popular summer courses are already getting full so to snap up the last remaining places, please see below. Our adult summer courses have proved so popular that we’re putting on extra dates - see below.
This weekend we are delighted to be hosting not one but two open meetings, for Yachting World Day Boats and for Chichester Scows. If you haven’t signed up yet, your time is running out for some great sailing and a fun evening on Saturday. See website for details.
