Message from our Vice Commodore – Stuart Saunders
‘Welcome to our 2018 sailing programme.
We have tried hard to pack in as much as possible and feel that there is something for everyone going forwards into our new season. Whether it is racing, training, social sailing, crewing, picnic cruises or volunteer training there will be plenty going on.
Firstly, we will kick start our season off with planned weekly talks in our top clubhouse. These will be designed for both sailors and volunteers and will run from early 2018.
We will run sailing sessions on a Tuesday and Friday evening, selected Saturdays afternoons and every Sunday morning. We will have a set evening for racing and will accommodate this with a larger course weather permitting. There will be plenty of social sessions with some run alongside improver training as well as crewing opportunities. Remember that you are not obliged to race, and any sailor whatever your level will be able to get out on the water during any session.
During the summer we have penciled in Friday night fish and chip supper evenings and also a monthly Sunday social event. Tuesday evening sailing will also have our normal sailing supper afterwards in the top clubhouse.
Our juniors will have weekly training and BCSC will continue to support any junior in the Southwest youth training scheme.
Our training programme will run from February and will include: refresher training in Beach Master, Registration, Radio and Race Officer at the top clubhouse. We will also have a first aid training course in March as well as powerboat courses and refresher dinghy training courses from April.
We feel that 2018 will be a great year for sailing at BCSC. Yes we plan to bring in new sailors with entry level courses but most importantly we remember that we already have so many sailors and want to offer you the very best programme giving ample opportunity to learn, socialise or race.’
