BTOSC is a sailing club with historical links with the telecoms industry.  

  • We organise a programme of sailing events every year
  • We communicate with our membership by email
  • The majority of our events start and finish in the Solent and we organise cruises elsewhere too  
  • Our skippers are experienced, RYA qualified, Yachtmaster Offshore or Yachtmaster Coastal skippers  
  • We charter whatever yachts we need for our events 
To find out more about BTOSC and our Sailing Programme please explore the menu at the top of the page.    If you are interested in joining us please get in touch with our Membership Sec or any member of the committee through email, linkedIn or our facebook group.

Current Status.  We are operating normally and our sailing programme for 2022 has been published.  

The first sailing event is a Skippers Refresher (11-13 March).  The Boat Handling event was over-subscribed.  The west country cruise is coming together and other events are coming together.

Yachts are likely to be in high demand this summer since more people will be holidaying in the UK so when we do announce an event please book early.

For the BBQ Weekend at least one yacht will once again enjoy some extra days on the water.  See reports on last years extended BBQ Weekend and the Trafalgar Weekend below.  The season ends with our Xmas Jolly and at least one yacht is likely to have an additional day on the water.  Please check your email and respond promptly to avoid disappointment.
