Update on Xmas Jolly

Great news.  At the committee meeting on 19 November John Wells announced that we now have Six boats signed up for this event.  This is a fantastic achievement.  Further details will be emailed to those attending.

The sailing programme for next year will be published soon.  It will be broadly based on last year’s programme but we are always open for ideas.   So if anyone has any particular requests  or suggestions for Cruising areas, Training events or other club events please let me or other committee members know.

Update on the Christmas Jolly

Even on this grey day I am sure that there are one or two if you still thinking about this specially priced event…

As of today, we have Five boats fully subscribed and we now need two more people to be able to make up a Sixth boat for this event.

So, as a reminder:

The cost of the berth for the weekend (4-6 Dec 2009) and a Christmas Dinner in Cowes is £100.  This excludes wine and a share of additional boat costs such as the cost of other food, fuel and marina fees.

For any non-members out there, Membership taken out now will of course also be good for next year too.

For further details please see the Events Page on the (Internal only) BTOSC Blog or contact the  Cruising Secretary

Update on Christmas Jolly (4 – 6 December 2009)

PM Friday 4th. – PM Sun. 6th. December –  Christmas Jolly

As of 13.11.09 we have Five boats signed up.  It is not too late to book.  We only need two more people to get Six boats on the water.

This is your last Opportunity to sail with the club in 2009 and probably the biggest social event in our calendar.  The cost is £100 a head for 2 days sailing and includes Christmas Dinner at the Red Duster in Cowes.  This cost excludes wine and any boat specific costs such as a share of fuel, food (other than the Christmas Dinner) and marina fees.  Beginners and new members welcome.

If you are wondering, how can this be, then you haven’t had your ear to the ground recently – it is solely that a month or two back, the Club decided to subsidise a couple of events and this is the second and last – so take advantage of it while the going is good – Could we possibly get back to FIVE boats on the water like we had some years ago???

Bookings as usual via the Cruising Secretary
For more general information information on the club or guidance please speak to any committee member or give me a call.
