The 2015 Blaze Traveller series starts off on 11th & 12th April with the Burghfield Open.

On Sunday there will be 3 more races interleaved with the standard club races.

Further details and links to pre-registration here

If you're interested in finding out more about the Blaze, please pop down on Saturday morning for a chat, or perhaps later on in the bar?

Saturday 2nd May: Treasure Hunt

Mark your calendars - on Saturday 2nd May we have the traditional start of season Treasure Hunt, starting at 1:30. It's a lighthearted event, where you have to sail around the lake to find clues to a location within the club, then solve the puzzles you find there.

All welcome, be ready to sail at 1:30. Meet under the balcony for a briefing. It's not a race and there's no time limit, but there will be a prize giving at the end of the afternoon.

Goodbye

Commodore's Reception - 22nd March 2015

Pat will be leaving the club after 15 years of dedicated and loyal service to Burghfield, so please join us in saying a fond farewell at the Commodore's Reception this Sunday afternoon at 1pm.

Racing for Sunday will be 2 races back-to-back in the morning. There will be no afternoon racing. We will be serving a hot and cold complimentary buffet with tea/coffee/soft drinks, the bar will also be open.

The Galley will be open for breakfast, but they will not be serving lunch, as they will be preparing the buffet.

Prize-giving will also take place for a number of the previous race series including: Commodore's Cup, Frostbite, Christmas, Autumn, and Summer.

Great days racing

Sun, wind and a hint of warmth, what more could you ask for from the start of a new month with a hint of spring in the air.

If you didn't make it today, I'm afraid you missed out as the gallery below will testify from JCarey

Fear not there's always next week, ...... let's hope it just as good!

'Understanding the Weather' talk by Simon Rowell Wednesday 11th March 2015 @ 7.30pm

Simon Rowell is a weather expert he was the winning Clipper ‘Round the World’ race skipper in 2002 as well as Assistant Race Director in 2005.

He is an RYA Ocean Yachtmaster instructor and was Chief Instructor of UKSA until 2009. Simon's in-depth knowledge of weather systems stems from his university masters degree in Applied Meteorology.

His great teaching style and tailor made courses will inspire you to spending even more time looking at the weather but understanding it and making it imperative to look at the clouds whilst racing.

This informative talk is a must see for any sailor. The main topic will be "Visual Clues on the Water", a talk that he has also given to the British Sailing Team.
