OMG! For this week only, we are Bosham Sailing Club with big food news! Very sensibly many of us are sailors who enjoy good, wholesome food and it looks as though we may have found a chef who is excited about working at our Club.
Some of you may know Johnnie Gallagher from his work both at Itchenor Sailing Club and Linda’s Pantry and there is no doubt that he is a professional chef and extremely knowledgeable about his trade. He is keen to source locally as many of his ingredients as possible, and to provide good value for money in his menus.
Johnnie will cook for us this Friday evening and if it goes well for both him and our Club, then hopefully this will culminate in Bosham Sailing Club having our own full time chef. Johnnie is proposing to offer sailors food, good casual dining and A la Carte evenings and so the bottom line will be more food, more choice, more often. Happys?!
Sooooo, in the first instance, when we’re checking Johnnie and Johnnie’s checking us, this is the menu for ……

Do you realise that it’s almost time to go sailing again? And therefore it’s time for you to reacquaint yourself with DutyMan and sign up to do a duty. We’re really after people to help with the first racing of the season that happens at the end of the month over the Easter weekend. Can you help? If you have any problems signing up, then either phone or email the office on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you sign up for a duty.
So don’t forget, reserve your place at our special supper on Friday.
