The working party season has started with a fantastic turnout of over forty people including a great number of cadets who proved that they have plenty of energy and we very keen to get involved with everything we were doing. the main aim was to attack all the brambles and weeds around the club and the massive pile of cuttings that we have down by the lake indicates the vast amount that was done. As alway we enjoyed a loverly lunch that then energised everyone for more work in the afternoon.
So a big thank you to Julie Nelson for organising us all so well and to everyone that helped in what was not just a lot of great working day but also a great social event in that we all get to chat with members that we may not see often and get to know each other better.
So if you have soem spare time please do come and join us on the next working part on Sunday 29th October. See you there.
Over the weekend of 23-24th September eleven BSC Cadet sailors attended the RYA East Zone Championship at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club. Five collected medals for their performances in the Optimist and Topper classes. The club also won the prize for sending the largest number of sailors from a single club to the event.
Many congratulations to all those who took part, you are great ambassadors for the club and continue to provide evidence of the club's growing strength and reputation at the junior level.
BLACKWATER SAILING CLUB'S VICTORIOUS RYA EAST ZONE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM 2017
Following a full season of sailing events it is now time to look at the work that is required over the winter to maintain the club at the high standard that we all want to enjoy. The following dates are when all members are asked to turn up and help with the varied jobs that need doing and the old adage, many hands make lite work so please all try and come along to at least one weekend and help. The work starts at 9:30 and finished about 16:00 with mid morning tea and coffee supplied and a simple lunch.
