You can keep up with all the latest from Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week at www.pyefleetweek.com.  There's a packed social programme ahead starting with the bar being open to welcome everyone arriving on Friday night and then our brand new Horse Racing Night on Saturday to get things off to a great start.  The full programme is as follows:
We love that everyone at BSC is highly competitive, and we appreciate that in the heat of battle or in the face of disappointment, one can occasionally become over excited or loose one's temper.  However, we have had a few cases of bad language reported to the committee recently so we would like to take this opportunity to remind all members that we should be kind and polite to our fellow competitors and race officials at all times and that bad language and aggressive behaviour are never acceptable. We hope that we never have cause to exercise it, but don't forget that when it receives reports of poor language or behaviour, your committee has the right to call a hearing under Rule 69. Please help us ensure fair and fun sailing for all and count to ten next time you feel you want to give someone a piece of your mind.
Further to our earlier post please be aware that the start time for racing this coming Sunday 23 July is 14.00 (not 11.00 as given on the printed calendar).  Once again our apologies for this error, we believe this is the last discrepancy so from this point forward to printed and online calendars should agree.
Please can all Pyefleet Week perpetual trophy holders bring their trophies back to the club and leave them with the bar team or one of the Flag Officers so we can get them prepared for representation at this year's Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week.  Thanks
Please can you help us by donating any spare rope and fittings you have to the club for use by Simon Redfern on the club boats. Blocks, shackles, rivets, fastenings, lengths of rope, tape, eye fittings, cleats, burgees - pretty much anything you might need on a Topaz, Wayfarer or Xenon we can make use of! We are setting up a Spares Drop Box which will be located by the galley/TV so please drop anything you can spare off there. Thanks everyone!
The fleet splits for Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week 2017 have been confirmed as follows (amended at 18.00 25 June): Side A Fast Handicap (0-999) Laser (all fleets) Solo Slow Handicap (1000 +) Mirror Side B Asymmetric Fast Handicap (0-951) RS700 Brightlingsea One Design Parent & Child Cadet Handicap & RS Tera – From Club Line Full details of the start times, etc, are online at pyefleetweek.sailbrightlingsea.com
The funeral for Geoff Payne has been arranged for Friday 30th June at 14:00 at Weeley Church. The family have suggested that people park in the back entrance to Hilltop Nursery and walk to Weeley church (5 mins). The nursery will be shut for the day so no access from the main road. There is limited parking at the church should it be required.
Following assessment by a member of the RYA’s Saillability team we are very pleased to announce that Brightlingsea Sailing Club has been awarded RYA Sailability Centre status. We already have a number of disabled members and our club is well equipped to support sailors with a range of disabilities so we look forward to developing this side of our activities. For further information about what the club can offer disabled sailors please contact Fiona Brown on commodore@sailbrightlingsea.com.
