What’s Happening This Week At Babbacombe?

May is drawing to a close and what a busy month it has been!

Thank you to everyone who has helped both on and off the water this last few weeks. I may be wrong but I count 19 on water sessions this month, which included Push The Boat Out, Powerboat Courses, Safety Boat Refreshers, RYA Level 1&2 courses, Friday night Junior RYA onBoard as well as our normal club racing.

None of the above is possible without our ‘army’ of volunteers including safetyboat crew, race officers, instructors, beachmasters, registration and galley so THANKYOU to all!

Excluding our Friday onBoard programme, the majority of our training is now done for this season so we are hoping to see all our new sailors & powerboat drivers out on the water having some fun! We have plenty planned for the season ahead so keep an eye on Facebook or the site for further information. All sailing dates can be found on this page. 

Special mention this week to Jane and Patricia who finished with flying colours their RYA Level 2. The last day was quite lumpy,  however both were racing round the course demonstrating some pretty good tacking and gybing. Nice pic in the gallery..

Our main event in May was Push The Boat Out. This year nearly 60 people took to the water, many for the first time. Though the wind was rather light, Oddicombe beach was looking stunning and showcased what a lovely place this is to sail. Many of our taster sailors have gone on to the join the club and are now looking forward to getting involved.

The Top Clubhouse has also been busy with featured events most Saturdays as well as midweek music/movie nights and quizzes. It was lovely to see so many new faces come up last night for our New Members Evening.

If you want to see further ahead with what’s coming up then please check our online calendar regularly.

Have a good week.
