It was another interesting day for the Bytes when they joined fleets of Solo, OK and Laser at Bristol Corinthian on Saturday. Bristol Corinthian is a big bowl of a reservoir, with the Cheddar hills looming in the background, perfectly able to accommodate the four fleets. Wind was brisk but extremely cold when away from the shelter of the clubhouse and it's bacon sandwiches! There were ten Bytes and once again the fleet was a mixture of ladies, young people... and rather older people!

Thank you to all those who participated and helped with our first open at Bowmoor yesterday, I hope everyone enjoyed it just as much as I did!

 Our next event will be next weekend (Saturday 16th April) at Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club, I have attached the details and we will be joined by some lasers Ok, and Solos so should be another great day J

 Phil Bush has very kindly offered to let sailors in to the dinghy park on Friday night if you need (not too late please, say up to 9.30pm ish) Feel free to contact him on: 07794471663

The sailing club will be open from 9.30am on the Saturday, bacon rolls will be available and there are plans to serve pasta or similar after sailing.

Registration will be from about 10am

The NOR for the Bowmoor Open Meeting is now available.

Just a quick update on the Bowmoor Open, they have managed to secure a professional RYA coach to do the training on Friday 8th April, which will be at a cost of £5 per person to help cover the cost of the coach.  Training will start at 10am.
 
Anyone is welcome to camp on the Friday night, and if you want to get involved in the BBQ, you just need to bring your own meat.
 
Also, just to clarify for the open meeting on the 9th April... the entry fee for the event will be £15 and will include lunch, and cake will be available after the races.

 

Any questions feel free to contact Rachel or Emily.

 What a great day it was for the Bytes at Bowmoor Sailing Club last weekend when a total of 20 boats took to the water on Saturday, including Cll's Cl's and a couple of Classic rigs. There were also plenty of new Hartley built boats which was good to see. The event was shared with 35 Supernova's but good race management ensured that 55 boats raced without incident. There had been a Byte training day on the Friday and it was obvious on race day that many of the youngsters sailing had taken considerable benefit from this!

Details of events for 2016 are now available on the Events page.
