Events | September 11th, 2017 | No comments yet

The end of another year, and this is our annual opportunity to show off where we’ve been sailing, and what we’ve seen, whether on the chilly Solent or the balmy Med.  Club members can submit up to 3 of their own photographs and will be able to tell us about them, before the all-important voting for the your favourites.  And Prizes!!!

Boaters Meeting – Wednesday 15th November – Bromsgrove Boaters AGM and ‘Wine & Cheese’

Events | September 11th, 2017 | No comments yet

Commodore’s report on what we’ve all been doing in the club this year; Treasurer’s report on what we’ve spent doing it; Cruising Secretary’s report on who has sailed where; etc.

The committee has tried to deliver what members want in the past year, but there’s always room for improvement.  So let’s have your ideas (and formal proposals) for doing it even better in future.Wine & Cheese

And election of next year’s committee members – who have to organise it all over again next year!
Volunteers to be on the committee need to notify the Club Secretary 28 days beforehand.

If all that wasn’t enough to get you excited, you can be sure that the wine and cheese will.

Boaters Meeting – Wednesday 18th October – John Hardiman “Sailing to Greenland with Robin K-J”

John did his RYA Competent Crew course back in 1987 and, year after year, worked his way through to Yachtmaster Ocean in 1996, then he gave up completing his log-book because it was just too full.   Now with over 20,000 miles under his belt, he continues to sail at every opportunity both cruising and racingincludingrecently winning the Nore Race in the Thames Estuary aboard the classic Nicholson 36 of fellow Boaters member Charles Hessey (previous winners of the Nore Race have included Edward Heath).

Amongst John’s innumerable adventures has been a voyage to Greenland, skippered by Robin Knox-Johnston, which didn’t get more than a few miles before the yacht needed extensive repairs!  John has as much to say about the people he’s sailed with as he does the yachts he’s sailed on.
