Congratulations to Holding Pattern which nabbed the Nab Tower trophy on Saturday! They triumphed on a day of light winds which saw a splendid turnout of Cruisers from across the harbour, followed by a delicious celebratory prize-giving dinner in the evening.
On Sunday we hosted the Feva Open and light winds from the south west enabled four races to be run from the committee boat and the overall winner came from HISC. Other cadets were out in their Oppies up in the pool, honing their skills in the fiercely fought Cutmill Series.
There’s a lot happening at BSC....

Discover Coaching Clinic – Saturday 26th May 0930hrs
Discover coaching is a fresh initiative through which we work with volunteers and coaches to create, maintain and enhance effective learning environments for dinghy, windsurf and keelboat sailors. Time will be spent in the classroom and on the water (subject to weather). The course will be run by qualified coaches with extensive experience in training other coaches developing their coaching skills from Olympic to beginner levels.
Eligibility: There are no pre-entry requirements.
If you are interested in coaching and supporting your club activities, have a RYA first aid certificate and Powerboat level 2 certificate that would be an advantage.
You can book now by contacting the Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
TALK BY OUR OWN OLYMPIC HOPEFUL SOPHIE AINSWORTH - SATURDAY 26th MAY
We are delighted that our fellow member, Sophie Ainsworth, will be giving a FREE talk at 18.30 on 26th May. It will be fascinating and informative to hear about her career to date and her plans for 2020. No need to book for the talk but it will be followed by an informal supper which you will be able to book later on this week.
Clarina Cup 28th May - Amended Start Time
The Clarina Cup start will be at 10.30 from the Quay on Monday 28th May (amended from 11.00 published in the Red Book). The Clarina Cup is a long-distance race for Fast Handicap boats and it is hoped the earlier start will allow competitors to explore some of the further reaches of the harbour. The start time of the Whitsun Weekend Cadet series is unaffected by this change.
Over the bank holiday weekend, we had a few members bikes being stolen. To ensure that this does not happen again, can we please ask members to bring bike chains and locks from now on to avoid this.
Dinghy Park clear out
We are having a major clear out in the Dinghy Park, if you have not paid for a space we will be forced to seize and sell the vessel with immediate effect. If you do have a boat in the park that you are paying for, please come to the office to collect your sticker as soon as possible so we are able to easily identify your boats.
