Sport on Saturday on the Big Screen at BSC
You can start with Lions rugby at 08:35. There’ll be the opportunity to have breakfast and a bet on the score and maybe a cup of tea and a Bloody Mary. And in the evening at 18:00 it’s America’s Cup Match Races 1 & 2 which hopefully will be simply unmissable. If you haven’t yet been able to watch any of the races, then you’re in for a treat. And if you’ve never watched sailing on the big screen, come along to your Club on Saturday evening and give it a try – you won’t be disappointed.

Escorted Picnic Cruise to East Head Sunday 18th June
This is an event that is aimed at those sailors who prefer not to race but who would like a short cruise at a gentle pace. David Williams our R/C Dinghies writes:
A cruise for all dinghies will take place on 18th June departing from the Quay at 10 am. A RIB escort will follow the fleet to and from East Head to help crews who are less familiar with sailing in the Harbour or need their picnic etc. taken out for them. The event is timed take the ebb tide out to East Head (arriving before a midday Low Water) and to enjoy the flood tide on the return to Bosham
Any Cruisers/RIBs who are able to join us at East Head would be very welcome.
09.45: Meet on the Terrace for registration and briefing
10.00: Launch and departure
14.00: RIB escort departs East Head.
Boats should be happy to beach on East Head or able to anchor.
Any boat that requires more than 1 or 2 people to lift should carry an anchor and long shore line. Boast should carry a floating painter of at least 5M . If you need to borrow either of these, please email email@example.com.
The support boat will be able to transport any reasonable picnic gear. This should be clearly marked and weather-proof.
Participants should sign-on at the club before leaving. Potential participants are encouraged to email their interest in the event to firstname.lastname@example.org as this will really help planning.

The bean to cup coffee machine has proved so successful that we have decided to keep this. It is situated in the Snug and you may help yourself to a good quality beverage and put your details in the honesty book by the machine.
We now have cucumber in the Bar to accompany your Hendricks Gin and Tonic and Seedlip (non-alcoholic) Gin and Tonic.
