Dog Trial - Clarification

The intention of the committee has always been to end the dog trial a few weeks before the AGM to allow time for feedback to be gathered. However, it has been brought to our attention that the initial communications after last year’s AGM did not make that clear and there may have been an expectation that the trial would continue until the AGM. To avoid any ill feeling, we have decided to continue the trial until that date.

The AGM this year will include an agenda item where the feedback of the trial will be presented.

In the meantime, we have produced a short survey to collate feedback about the trial.

Bulmersh Family Fun Day in association with Wokingham Borough Council

On a beautiful Sunday morning 27th September bright and early Virginia and Team Burghfield volunteers Paul and Henry Checksfield Ian and Dylan Bergh Steve Middleton and Chris Rowland set out our Burghfield Sailing Club Stand along with Steve’s RS400 and Henry’s Oppie on display. Visitors were drawn to our stand intrigued by the boats on show with spinnaker sails & flags flying looking radiant in the glorious sunshine. A great event with lots of other activities on the day brought over 1,200 visitors. Most of the families & potential sailors were interested in our “Open Day” next year so we will be contacting them to come along and try sailing and see our wonderful facility & maybe join us for the 2016 season.

A great way to spend a sunny Sunday promoting Burghfield Sailing Club.
It would be ideal to have a larger team to assist and rotate various events If you would like to get involved as a volunteer promoting the Club at similar events do please contact the office

Committee Boat Repairs

As some of you may have noticed the Burghfield Committee Boat is currently out of the water. The boat is out of action for a couple of weeks for essential and urgent repairs.

The Bosun and team are doing a great job, working through the week whilst the weather is favourable to get the boat fixed and back in service as soon as possible. And it's looking better already!

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding.
