Here we go again… we have water! So it’s time to get our fabulous sailing club up and running again. As you already know we are lighting the club BBQ around 6pm on Sunday 29th for our first get together of 2021. Bring your own food to cook and something to drink. Why not stay over in your van or tent. Whilst you are at the club we are asking for your much needed help to tidy the place up after it’s long sleep! We can make a start by litter picking and doing a tidy up in the boat park. The green bins are emptied every 2 weeks, so let’s make sure they are full. A bigger project is planned for the weekend of 11th and 12th September when we are asking for your HELP with specific jobs, Jon Aldhous is going to put a list on the big white board at the club lounge. Bring your power tools/ gardening tools and cleaning equipment and do whatever your good at. There is something for everyone to do, just ask and we will find you a suitable task. We look forward to seeing all our club members again very soon, so let’s get our club fit for purpose again and back to the hive of activity it was before the events of the last year or so. See you soon, Martin.

Dear Members and Guests,
You are formally invited to our inaugural Family Camp, to be held at Beaver Sailing Club Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June 2019.
Come and join the fun!
On the theme “Swallows and Amazons for ever!”, the fun starts at 10:00am Friday 1st June and continues on till Sunday Racing.
- Friday – on the water activities and coaching for the youngsters, followed by a BBQ, games, film, dancing, (and a few beers).
- Saturday – mini Junior Regatta followed by “Water Awareness (swimming)” activities and another BBQ party into the night.
- Sunday – a junior race before the main club racing.Camp overnight if you can – it’s an adventure! If you don’t want to camp, come and party long into the night.
The small print
This is not a RYA affiliated event. It is restricted to BSC members and their invited guests. Members will be responsible for their children / guests at all times.
It is being organised on a collaborative basis – adults must get involved, make suggestions and run activities. Parents will not be able to drop off and leave unless they can arrange for someone else to supervise their children and play their part.
The ethos of the camp will be to
- Get involved as a family and make a difference
- Join in, try your hardest and make friends
- Respect Beaver Sailing Club, the equipment and others
- Have fun!
What should each family bring?
Ideas – We need lots of suggestions for games and activities. Think about things everyone can do during the:
- day (on and off the water)
- party games
No food provided, please bring your own
We will be firing up the club BBQ each evening for you to use.
You are free to use the club facilities and kitchen.
Loads of sailing gear as we will all be getting wet.
£5 per adult per day
Sailing Entry including use of club boats
Members £10 per day

We hope that you can join us and enjoy all that Beaver SC can offer.
Please let me know that you are coming along with how many will be in your party.

Henry Wetherell clinched his first Finn national title at Mengeham Rythe SC on Sunday after only one further race was possible.
British Sailing Team member Wetherell also took the U 23 title, ahead of GAC Pindar U 23 Cameron Tweedle in second with Grand Master Graham Tinsley third.
An impressive 58 entries underlines the growing strength of the UK Finn fleet with 10 U23 sailors taking part. In recent years the British Finn Association with sponsor GAC Pindar has supported an U23 squad with grants and training, and four of those were among six U23 sailors in the top 10.
Tickets are £5 each and include BBQ meat, salad and breads followed by various cakes and desserts.
Alternatively if you bring your own meat then help yourself to salad, bread, cakes and desserts for £2.50.
Please join in and submit your entries to our fun bake off, we have 3 categories,
2-cakes and buns,
3-deserts and puddings.
All entries will be both judged and then eaten by the people attending the event.
It’s all a bit of fun but we will have prizes for the winners.
