Photo Competition 2020

Club News | January 2nd, 2021 | No comments yet

On 9 December 2020 we held our annual photo competition, masterminded by Trevor Rackley. This is an opportunity for members to show off where we’ve been sailing, and what we’ve seen, whether braving the real weather around the UK or just waiting for yet another perfect sunset in the Med.

The normal entry limit of 3 photos was increased to 4, and 9 members entered 33 images in total. Voting was by show of hands.  Thanks to all.

The honours went to:

1st Chris Palmer Early Off (2)

First: Chris Palmer- Early Off

2nd Alan Gilmour Light Ahoy

Second: Alan Gilmour – Light Ahoy

3rd Lynne Lewis Misty Morning on the Water

Third: Lynne Lewis – Misty Morning On The Water

Virtual Meeting 20 January 2021 – Quiz Night

Club News, Events | January 2nd, 2021 | No comments yet

Continuing a Bromsgrove Boaters tradition, we start the sailing year with a nautical quiz!

Once again Jane Jones is doing all the hard work assembling new questions, and new answers (obviously), so all you have to do is perform a little less badly than everyone else and you’ll walk off with one of the big prizes!

Except due to Covid, the quiz is virtual and there is no need to walk at all (but we are keeping the prizes).

Zoom link will be sent via the Members Update email.
