Owners of keelboats,

BSC’s inaugural Friday Afternoon [Non-Spinnaker] Series commences this Friday, April 1!

The series will run every Friday afternoon until the end of July and will appeal to those who are retired and can muster a crew – or, those who ‘work from home’.

It is a Non-Spinnaker Pursuit Race commencing at 1330 hours. The series will be split into 2 (Series 1 and 2). There will be 3 discards in Series 1 (9 races) and 3 discards in Series 2 (also 9 races).

This is a very low-management series with no laid marks, no starters and no tender services. The BSC will publish offset times on their website every Friday morning. There is ONE course and start times will be determined by the forecast on the day.

Skippers will be required to text their first lap and finish times to David Stenhouse, Race Manager, on his mobile (see details below).

Following the race, boat owners are invited to come back to the sailing club for drinks and a sausage sizzle. Those coming from further afield are welcome to tie up in our new marina.
