Dear member of Bromsgrove Boaters Yacht Cruising Club (BBYCC),

Our evening meeting last Wednesday generated lots of ideas from club members including a few suggesting that we update our name to better reflect what we do.  But don’t get too excited just yet, BBYCC is only my idea to grab your attention!  We also had some useful discussion around a wide range of topics including more sailing events throughout the year, sailing on Mon-Fri for the same price as a weekend, boats meeting up for a ‘Flotilla dinner’, encouraging more members to sail, and much more.

In the coming months your committee will be reviewing all the ideas and views put forward, to see what we can implement to improve your club.  Thank you to all those that attended and, if you didn’t, please feel free to contact any committee member with your ideas and views about your club.

The Wednesday 19th August evening meeting will be the Summer Garden Party.  Weather permitting, we’ll have an outdoor party with Pimms (or a pint if you prefer), pork baps with potato wedges, salads, vegetarian option, plus fruit salad desert all included for just £8.  We do need to know numbers in advance, to aid planning, so please email to book your place by Sunday 2nd August.

Sailing weekends planned for the rest of this year include 11th – 13th September on the Solent, and the club’s Autumn weekends of 2nd – 4th October and 16th – 18th October.

Autumn weekend crews are normally organised directly by participating skippers but, if you’re interested in going but haven’t found your skipper, please contact either myself or Ken Lloyd the Cruising Secretary at as soon as possible so that your name is on the list and Ken can find you a place.
