Welcome to Bromsgrove Boaters

We are an RYA affiliated offshore cruising club whose aim is to encourage as many people as possible to share our passion to get out onto the water and take up coastal sailing. As a club we welcome everyone from experienced sailors who want to do more sailing to people with no experience at all who want to try sailing on yachts.

We have reviewed the Government Covid Roadmap and are planning to return to in-person  events after 19 July, all being well. Our Social Events are  held monthly on the third Wednesday of the month at Bromsgrove Rugby Club, B60 3DH, 7.30 start, speaker at 8.00. Visitors welcome.

We have arranged long-weekend charters of  4 Oceanis-37s  for October on the Solent for which bookings will open later in the summer.

We are reviewing our training options, focusing on RYA First Aid and SRC (VHF).

We are running one  virtual event each month, a “Navigation Workshop” – 2nd Thursday each month via Zoom. Your chance to add to, refresh or share your coastal sailing knowledge and skills. Our training officer sets up a few questions concerning navigation situations, first aid, rules of the road and more for participants  to add their practical experience or  questions into the discussion. 7.30 to 9-ish.

Our planned in-person meetings are:

21 July – “Drascombes and Art”
Sadly we have decided to cancel this evening due to insufficient numbers  confirming an intention to attend.

18 August – No Meeting

15 September – RNLI
Now  our first planned post-Covid restrictions social evening.
Latest news and developments from the lifeboat and lifeguard service.
