Message from our Vice Commodore – Steve Norman
Welcome to our 2020 sailing programme.
Our objective at Babbacombe Corinthians Sailing Club is to provide a safe and supportive environment for existing members and to attract new members of all ages and experiences, in order to enjoy the sport and develop new skills. To this end we have published our 2020 sailing programme and are confident that there is something for everyone.
The season will kick start in early March with a number of weekly briefs on Tuesday evenings in our top clubhouse. These are open to everyone, sailors, safety boaters, volunteers and anyone else who is interested in learning more about sailing.
Sailing for real then starts in April with a number of “rediscover sailing sessions” designed to ease our sailors back onto the water after the long winter break. The calendar then contains a number of racing, junior and social sailing sessions. Racing sessions are held on Tuesday evenings and this year the courses will be even more challenging and there are lots of silverware to be won!
Social sailing will take place on weekends and are designed to be a relaxing and fun experience for sailors of all experiences. A particular favourite of all members are the picnic cruises where sailors and kayakers alike will head towards a deserted tropical beach (well Redgate Beach anyway?!) and munch their way through delicious picnic lunches before returning full of the joys of summer! This year we hope to be joined by our DSA affiliated members in their very smart yachts? Our junior “On Board” sessions on Friday evening are very popular and are designed to help our young sailors attain RYA qualifications. Throughout August we will be encouraging everyone, juniors and adults, to enjoy a social sailing and also to use the on-water time to work on improving their sailing skills with the support of the instructor team.
To attract new sailors to the club, on 9th May we are holding our RYA Push The Boat Event where we open our doors to the community and offer free dingy taster sessions. Our 2020 194th annual Regatta is an open event and will take place on 13/14th June which provides members of BCSC and other clubs the opportunity to enjoy exciting racing over two action packed days.
As a recognised RYA training centre, formal RYA courses including Power Boat level 2, First Aid, Dinghy sailing Levels 1 to 3 and more will be on offer starting in April. Last year our training sessions were very well attended so please book early to avoid disappointment!
There will be a number of other special events during the year including the Vice Commodores reception and a new event for 2020 – the Vice Commodores Beach BBQ – don’t miss it!!
In summary, there is much to look forward to in 2020 and we want to offer you, our members, the very best programme, giving ample opportunity to learn, socialise and race according to your own interests and ambitions.
If you would like to contact me about any aspect of the above then I will be pleased to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing you on the water!
