Friday Night Family Sailing & Women On Water
From May to July we run informal support Friday Night sailing sessions aimed at encouraging everyone to enjoy being at the BSC beach and enjoying the simple pleasures of messing about in boats. The sessions are timed to coincide with evening high tides and there are special opportunities from women to get afloat as part of the National This Girl Can programme.
