81 members sat down to a delicious traditional X-mas lunch on Thursday 14th December. This was followed by entertainment by our very own Blackwater Ensemble with many carols to sing along to and memorable performances by the Blackwater Singers. Everyone is now well in the mood for X-mas but don't forget to come along to X-mas Cheer at the club from 11:00 on Sunday 17th when mince pies and mulled wine will be available.
A snowy scene greeted members who visited the club on Sunday 10th December. Just the weather for our Winter and Icicle sailing series and I'm sure a bit of snow won't stop the Friday Sailors.
Thanks to Zoe Nelson for the following photos.
The Blackwater faction of the Squiddies Feva team attended last weekend’s Feva Winter Champs at the prestigious Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy.
BSC ‘s Sophie Johnson with Dylan Collingbourne (Burnham SC) took first place overall, giving a “masterclass” in heavy wind sailing on day one.
The rest of the Blackwater team; Theo Aers & Rhiannon Webber, Ruby Andrews & Gemma Raymond and Marnie Aers & Ellie Shelter, all sailed brilliantly under the expert guidance of Squiddies coach Johnathan Lewis, in the very challenging conditions.
Well done guys!
