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

Once again Jane Jones has done 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!

Our January 2019 club meeting was an opportrunity for members to show off where we’ve been sailing, and what we’ve seen, whether on the chilly Solent or the balmy Med in our annual photo competition.  Club members were able to submit up to 3 of their own photographs.

Members present at the meeting then voted for their three favourite photographs. And the winners were:


Winner. Simon Holloway, with “West Wittering Sunset”

Second Place. Simon Holloway with “West Wittering Sunburst”

Equal Third Place. Trish Lloyd with “Ekincik sunset”

Equal Third Place. Alan Gilmour with “Ooops!”
