Spring has sprung! Well, it has at BSC with the club awash with cadets on Saturday. Over 30 boats took part in the Junior Regatta on a grey and chilly day with hot competition on the water. Congratulations to all those who took part. Sadly, the club sailing on Sunday was not so lucky with the weather and had to be cancelled but hopefully next weekend’s full programme will fare better.
Apologies for the length of this newsletter but there’s so much coming up!

In line with government legislation (AKA the Sugar Tax) we are implementing price increases on certain soft drinks and mixers. We have worked with our supplier to try and stock brands that have reduced their sugar content and are not affected but you will be aware from the media that certain well known brands have opted not to change their formulae and will therefore be subject to the tax.
