Welcome new members and an update for existing members. On behalf of Budworth Sailing Club, welcome to the best Sailing Club in Cheshire!
Many of you who have just joined, will be familiarising yourself with Budworth. We may have mentioned the week’s activities on the Open Day but I thought I would summarise the week’s activities, so you can decide when you would like to come down:

Monday nights – adult training – contact John Waind for more info – bsctraining@budworthsc.org.uk

Tuesday nights – Raceboard night (windsurfing) – everyone is welcome to give it a try, no need to be an expert, we have some spare gear as long as you don’t mind getting wet! Have a go, then off to the pub after. Contact Paul Keeler – captraceboard@budworthsc.org.uk

Wednesday nights – midweek sailing (racing) – Two races and two fleets, handicap (all boats except Lasers) and Lasers. Lovely evening sailing with food prepared whilst you sail. Run by the also lovely Bill Kenyon at captwednight@budworthsc.org.uk

Friday nights – cruising not racing – Super relaxed evening. Come down and just chill out, in the most beautiful spot in Cheshire. Potter about with others, have a go with someone else, chat with your friends, borrow a boat, sit on the patio, fire up the barbeque – whatever suits – just enjoy the surroundings. The rescue boat will be manned by an experienced helm (not necessarily an instructor), who will be happy to provide some informal coaching / advice if requested. Bar Open – contact John Waind – see email above.

Saturday – relaxed racing – Fancy learning the ropes, easing yourself into racing – this is the afternoon for you. First race is a practice race where you will get some tips from the Race Officer, followed by two races where competition is fun and relaxed. Contact Mike Davies at captsat@budworthsc.org.uk
Stop press – we are also hoping to start more junior training on Saturday mornings in conjunction with SYSCA soon. Please contact Andy Reilly at andy_reilly@mail.com if you are interested.

Sunday – flagship racing day & junior training – In the morning Hugh Attfield and the team run junior training. He is full at the moment but get yourself on the waitlist/next year’s list and contact Hugh about anything related to junior training – borrowing boats etc. He is at bscjuniors@budworthsc.org.uk. Then in the afternoon our main racing happens – don’t be scared off this afternoon. It is competitive but also welcoming, have a go – the fleet captains will make sure the rest of the fleet know you are new and will watch out for you. Crews are always required, so you can experience the thrill of crewing or perhaps just relax and watch the racing, enjoy the galley or bar afterwards.

Everyone is welcome whatever activity/day you select. Also this message is for all our existing members who maybe didn’t realise there was so much choice now regarding when and what type of activity you fancy.

Remember all committee members are volunteers, so they may not respond as quickly as perhaps work colleagues but the email addresses of all committee members can be found at http://budworthsc.org.uk/about-us/contact-us/
