Membership Renewals - Reminder to Complete
This year the renewal process requires all primary members (whoever pays for your subscriptions in your household) to confirm their renewal online. Thank you to all those who have completed this action so far but if not please see instructions below. Please also note that you will only have to do this once.
For your renewal to be processed we need you to do two things as soon as possible:
- If you wish to pay by instalments, set up payment details for GoCardless (through the BSC website) - which is replacing our current Direct Debit system.
- Confirm your membership subscription tariff in line with the 2023 Scale of Charges. This is found in your members hub on the website.
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.

We will have a blind tasting at the club on 10th February for BSC members, who will pay a modest sum to judge our efforts. Proceeds going to the BSC Youth Sailing Fund.

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.
