Firstly thank you to everyone who came to the 2016 Bowmoor Youth and Optimist camp, it was great to see so many people having fun on the water and at the club, everyone should be very proud of their sailing and I am very grateful to all the helpers, we couldn’t run camp with out you, thank you lots.
Looking to the future, I just wanted to highlight a few key dates.
This weekend coming we have the Bowmoor regatta and family fun day weekend. On the Saturday (11th June) there will be various races, games and fun in the day followed by a live steel band, BBQ and disco in the evening. Entry for the Regatta is £5 per person (adult or child) to include camping, bouncy castle and entertainment.This is an event for all the family not just the sailors! The evening BBQ will be £3.50 for under 10s and £5 for everyone else. There are more details on the Bowmoor website.
On Sunday 12th June it is the Bowmoor 5 hour sailing race, teams of sailors join together to race non stop for 5 hours swapping at regular intervals, if you would like to enter please email Kate Tustin at email@example.com – if you need some help finding a team please let me know and I will help to co-ordinate.
Saturday 2nd July we have a free youth event sponsored by Yoo !
The Yoo regatta, is an open meeting handicap racing event open to youth sailors only. It will be a fun and friendly day on the race course, with assistance for our beginner racers if needed, parents please could you let me know if you are free to help on this day?
We have organised further Optimist coaching on Sunday 19th & 26th June and Sunday 10th &17th July please do let me know if you would like to book on? The cost is £20 per session, come to as many as you can! This coaching is aimed at those children who would like to join in with club racing but who need a little help to be confident in achieving this.
Finally please see below from Kate Hartshorn @ Frampton Sailing Club advertising the Frampton Oppy open on the 3rd July, I plan to take Katy along, why not come and join us? Frampton is a very friendly club and last year we had a lovely time.
