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
I regret to announce the recent death of Frank Bermingham. Although a fairly new member, having joined in 2014, Frank will be remembered around the club and for having sailed his cruiser Sea Wicca. On behalf of the Flag Officers and the Club I express our condolences to his son Richard, Funeral arrangements wil follow in due course
It is with great sadness I have to announce the sudden death of Charlie on 2 September. He was an active member of the Club and cruiser owner and BJRC racer and we extend our condolences to Valerie and all the family.
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.
