Friday 11th December is the big one! It’s the BSC LOTTERY and not only is it the BSC Lottery, it’s a Quarterly Bonus Draw Lottery as well as the monthly draw. The first prize is going to be BIG! There will be further information in next week’s newsletter but remember, a BSC lottery ticket is an excellent present as it not only helps the Club but it gives the owner a present that lasts all year.

Saturday 12th December. After the Cadet Prize Giving it’s the Cadets Over 13 Christmas Disco. Tickets are £10 and are available from the bar.
Sunday 13th December is that perennial Christmas favourite the Children’s Christmas Party. Father Christmas has had this booked in his diary since his visit last year when a rather grumpy reindeer made his whole visit very interesting. Father Christmas is terribly excited and is looking forward to meeting all the children. The party is ticket only but open to all, and the tickets cost £5 and must be bought in advance from the Office or the bar.
Information about all these events are on www.boshamsailingclub.com but there’ll be more reminders next week.
Tuesday 22nd December. Carols in the Club 18:00 for a prompt 18:30 start. More to follow next week but get those voices in training.
And finally a date for next year! Guess what? We’re going to have a Ball! The brilliant, breathtaking, bubbly Bosham Ball is back! You have to be there on 28th May 2016. Watch this space.
As you know the Club has purchased new RS Fevas over the past couple of years and we are now looking to sell these boats off to Club members so that we can buy new boats again next year. The benefit to the Club is that we always have new boats for training and hire and the benefits for the members are that we are able to offer Fevas for sale at prices which are very competitive as we can pass on the savings made from bulk purchasing. All the boats are in excellent condition and comprise the following
- RS Feva XL model
- RS Feva ‘S’ mainsail (Dacron) and Club jib
- Top cover
- Launching trolley
- RS Feva XL Mylar battened mainsail which is brand new and unused.
The cost of purchasing a Feva varies depending upon the age of the boat and is as follows:
1 x purchased March 2014 - £2700
3 x purchased February 2015 - £3500
1 x purchased July 2015 - £3800
If you are interested in viewing the boats or would like to purchase one please contact the Club Secretary.
Goodness - that’s quite a lot for you all to remember. AND there’ll be more next week!
