It’s the end of another year when we’ve all been sailing in interesting places and seeing amazing sights.

So this is your annual opportunity to show off where you’ve been, and what you’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 best ones. And Prizes!!!

Club News, Events | August 28th, 2018 | No comments yet

Find out 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!

Some of the current committee are standing down, so the club needs members to step forward and offer their services to run and develop your club, for your benefit. Nominees don’t need to be seconded, just let the Club Secretary know by Wednesday 24th October if you wish to join the committee and assist with any of the roles; social, cruising, training, communications, etc,

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

With Trafalgar Day almost here, the Royal Navy’s presentation team are coming to Bromsgrove Boaters to update us on what’s changed since 21 October 1805.

The team, all of whom have had recent front line experience, will describe how the six fighting arms of the modern Royal Navy operate around the globe, either as individual units or collectively as a Task Group, in order to protect our interests and to ensure that the world’s sea trading routes are kept open.

An enduring set of standards, values, customs and traditions continues to underpin the Royal Navy’s commitment, but what does the future hold?

Come along and find out from the Officers, Sailors and Royal Marines who are your Royal Navy.
