2016/17 Sailing Program

Our sailing program runs from the first saturday in September, through to mid December, and then from Mid January through to Easter.
Racing normally starts at 2pm (or when the commodore is on the water) with a race of around 1.5 to 2 hours depending on conditions.
Divisions sailed include 16 Foot Skiffs, 125s, Lasers (Full Rig, Radial, 4.7), Sabots (one and two up) and Allboats.
 
Rigging and preparation generally start around midday. Three to four rescue boats will be in use and helpers for these are always welcome.

On Saturday mornings they may also be the Learn To Sail course running (bookings required) and there may be a Squids session for Sabot sailors.
The Squids sessions are for beginners  through to high-level sabot sailors, to improve their sailing skills while having fun, and being taught by highly talented ex-Sabot sailors.

End of Season Commodore's Report

Well that's it for another season.

Big fleets of Lasers and 16ft Skiffs gracing the course in the Hamilton reach of the river. The last race of the season had it all, sheep stations were on the line in the 7th and final heat of the club championship, with places constantly changing. Broken masts and mishaps were a plenty keeping the rescue boats and drivers busy, we even had to contend with the cruise ship turning on the finish line making it an interesting finish.The winner not known till the last few meters from the line.

Thank you to everyone for another stellar season at B.S.S. I can not thank our volunteers enough for the tireless work you all put in to making everything run smoothly. Thank you to all comimittee members working behind the scenes to make sure we can continue to enjoy all our club has to offer. Thank you to Shayne Sutton for her kind words and support throughout the season. Congratulations to the club Champions and trophy winners of the 2016/2017 season. 

Good luck to those competing over the off season and we will see you all next season.
