Beer Regatta was a resounding success both on and off the water. Well Done to all those taking part in the sailing and thereby contributing to the BSC cheque for £650 donated to the Beer Regatta Committee. Thank you to everyone who helped out on the water, on the beach, and in the clubhouse - a special vote of thanks to all those who kept us fed and watered on both Thursday and Saturday.
After all the excitement of Regatta the next social event is the return of our Supper Club on Friday 26th September Download more details and the booking form by clicking on: Supper Club Word Document
The Laser fleet continues to keenly contest the Thursday and Sunday Series with just a few races to go before the end of the summer On the Travelling Circuit
One good way to improve your racing skills is to make the effort and travel to Open Meetings at different venues. You get experience of different conditions, different competitors and there is also the possibility of picking up new techniques. Congratulations to Mike 'VC' Taylor on his 3rd place in his Laser at Sidmouth Regatta in testing conditions and a mention in despatches for Percy Mitchell for winning the Luggers at Sidmouth Regatta on the same day.
If you didn't catch it in the local news - Congratulations to Daniel Thompson on becoming the International Topper Class Association 4.2 World Champion at Pwllheli, North Wales
And well done James G and James T for following up their creditable 12th place in the RS800 European Championships on Lake Garda with an even better 7th at the National Championships in Plymouth
