Current Status. We held our AGM on 15 May. The first sailing event was an extended Skippers Refresher event in June and whilst waiting for restrictions to be lifted some of our members have got together for private charters within the ‘rules’.
We have a sailing programme for the rest of 2021. The first such event will be Weekend 6-8 August. The second will be our annual BBQ weekend Cruise 17-19 September. We are also considering adding other events subject to demand.
Note that for the BBQ Weekend and for the Xmas Jolly, at least one yacht will have one or two additional days on the water.
Thanks to some sterling work by John Wells we now arrangements in place for members to purchase items of clothing with the club logo. The above is just one example – more designs can be seen at www.oceanworld.co.uk/btosc.
