IMPORTANT NOTICE - Changes to the DutyMan System


All sailing duties for Sep - Dec 2016 have been uploaded to the Dutyman system.

As a trial, members can, for a limited time, sign-up for their preferred dates, directly on the Dutyman system. Simply login to Dutyman and select the date/duty you wish to volunteer for.

The sign-up will be available until Monday 1st August. At this point all remaining duties will be automatically rostered.

Members are reminded that they are expected to complete 2-3 duties each year (excluding Wednesday evenings and the Christmas series which are rostered separately).

Rosters for bar duty will follow shortly.

If you are planning to volunteer for the Optimist Open Meeting on 3rd September please contact Rob Thomas as a matter of urgency and before 1st August.

Racing News

2016 Summer Series - Sunday 3rd July

Thanks to everyone who participated in the trial of two morning races over the last two weeks.

The response has been really positive with almost everyone expressing support for the idea.

However, there are a few niggles and processes to get right. So, rather than rush in to it for the next race series, we will revert to the traditional morning and afternoon race format for the 2016 Summer series and plan to adopt the 2-race format more widely in the future.

In the mean time, if you have any feedback or concerns, please feel free to drop Ian a line on

Car Sticker

Security - Car Stickers

In order to aid security on the gate in the short term, we would highly recommend adding a BSC car sticker to the corner of your windscreen.

Stickers for each car can be collected from the club office.

The stickers also make it easier to identify whether there are any visitor cars, rather than member cars, left in the car park when locking up.

New Gate

Gate Security Update - July 2016

With immediate effect, the padlock for the high security gate at the end of the drive has been changed. An email has been sent to all current, primary members with details of the change - please check your inbox.

The reason for the change is so that non-member, regular, club visitors who often attend in high top vehicles, have better access to the club without compromising the overall security of the site - they will only have access when the bottom gates are open.

The gate codes for the other gates and club door remain unchanged.

If you have any problems or would like a reminder of any of the club access codes, please contact the club office for further information or call 07746 393275. Please use the club mobile number rather than calling committee members out of hours - thank you.
