Membership Renewals - Urgent Action Required
This year the renewal process is a little different in that we need all primary members (whoever pays for your subscriptions in your household) to confirm their renewal online.
For your renewal to be processed we need you to do two things as soon as possible:
1.Set up payment details for GoCardless - which is replacing our current Direct Debit system. All members must do this.
2.Confirm your membership subscription tariff in line with the 2023 Scale of Charges.
N.B. You will not be able to book any events/training online until your renewal is complete. If you require any assistance please contact the office.
We have a step-by-step guide on the renewal process via the website here.
It was wonderful to see so many members at the Cadet and Dinghy prize giving on Saturday. Please click here to view a list of cadet prize winners.
If you were unable to attend, please collect your prizes from the BSC office during office hours.
See this page on the website for the video prepared by Francesca Aston which sums up the fantastic year of cadet sailing that we have had.

BSC New Year's Nurdling 2022
Nurdling was epic this year. Bosham had a great turnout with lots of energetic & fresh headed young nurdlers!
We were on top for large parts of the circuit, being 50 yards ahead at the last junction that the ref blew the whistle to bring Itchenor level for a restart.
A mad scramble ensued with Itchenor managing to pip us to the post! A lovely morning though and we'll try again next year.
Access Gates to the Quay
Would all members please be reminded that the access gates to the Quay (alongside Shore Road & The Meadow) must be locked after entering or leaving the quay.
There have been a number of occasions recently where they have been left unlocked. Please ensure that you lock the gates after use.
Classified Adverts on the BSC website
Please could any members who have placed adverts on the BSC website update the office (email@example.com) or your classified listing - if your item has sold. This enables us to keep all listings as accurate as possible.
If anyone does wish to make a donation to the Youth Sailing Fund all details can be found in your members hub.
