BSC Mirror Fleet Newsletter - April 2021
Published 14:55 on 7 Apr 2021
Dear Members & Friends
Since writing in November the Club has faced unprecedented uncertainty and pressure surrounding its efforts to get us all back sailing. Every credit to our Officers and Committee who continue to manage the situation so that, at present, our 2021 Sailing Programme and use of the Club are set to steadily and safely resume.
The Mirror Fleet programme is as published in the November newsletter, and is of course included in the main Club Programme which you will find on the website.
I am sure that enthusiasm is stacked up! But a return to normal simply cannot happen all at once, just be sure to enjoy your sailing as it comes along.
You can practice your skills at the very first event which is the Mirror Practice Race starting at 11.25 on Sunday 25 April (note revised start time of 11.25).
Then the first Sailing and Training session is at 09.00 on Sunday 9 May and I am delighted to say that our two very experienced coaches Craig Bond and Alec Mumford will be taking this session, so please do come along. The first Mirror points race follows at 11.25 on the same day. (note revised times for these sessions).
My own involvement in any group sailing or racing will not be before 19 May - but in good time for the second Sailing and Training/Race day on 13 June.
Very many thanks to Derrick Gentry for keeping an eye on "Kiss My Rudder" over the winter. Derrick now has the foils and sails and, even in these times, will be the third to make use of the boat and involve our youngest sailors.
Please contact me if you would like to have a sail, which will need to be when Club safety boats are afloat.
As ever a very warm welcome to everyone, old and new, lots to look forward to and enjoy your sailing.
