It’s already a bumper sailing season at Bosham Sailing Club! The Sunday fleet and handicap series are being very well supported, the Classic Dayboat fleet is going great guns, the Oppies are being fearless and keen and last weekend saw 16 Cruisers having a cracking race to the Nab Tower and back.
So onwards and upwards…..

The following are notes from R/C House, Michael Cover:
Beverage Update from the Rear Commodore House
The more observant of you may have noticed some changes in our drinks line up. This has resulted from a change of supplier and means that we now have Birra Moretti Draught (4.6% abv), Fosters Lager (4.0% abv), as well as retaining Kronenbourg 1664 (5% abv) and Estrella Damm (4.6% abv). Our ales remain the ever popular Sharp’s Doom Bar (4.3% abv) and Otter (4.5% abv) and we now have Orchard Pig Reveller Cider (4.5%) We have also introduced Seedlip, which is effectively a non-alcoholic gin and really refreshing with our Fever Tree Tonic. May solve the dilemma of “What to drink when you are driving or not drinking”. We have also a very slightly revised collection of wines and this is reflected in the updated and reprinted Wine List, which is now in the Club.
We also have a new Coffee Machine in The Snug. This serves bean-to-cup coffee, hot chocolate and hot water for tea. All this needs is a push of the appropriate button (after placing a cup underneath the nozzle!) and the filling in of your name and Red Card number in the honesty list by the machine.
