Bartley Sailing Club invites you and your family to come and try sailing for FREE at the club’s Open Day this Saturday (17August).

This fun-filled afternoon at this friendly club in the Bartley Green area of Birmingham runs from 10am to 4.30pm and is guaranteed to offer something for everyone.

Get a first taste of sailing with one of the club’s experienced members, chat to some of the club sailors or simply sample the social side of what life at Bartley SC can offer.

Just bring along a change of clothes, some old trainers and waterproofs and the club will supply everything else you need to get afloat. Refreshments will be available throughout the day with a BBQ at lunchtime.

It’s been a big week for Bartley SC who are also celebrating after being awarded £45,000 in the latest round of Sport England Inspired Facilities funding to improve the club’s changing facilities.

Topper 5.3 NS2 Rutland Event Report

Topper 5.3 NS2 Rutland Event Report
Website Administrator, Tuesday 11 June 2013 - 18:49 //

Topper start lineA total of 179 boats attended the Craftinsure Nationwide Series 2 event at Rutland over the weekend of 8th/9th June making a great continuation to the 2013 Topper season. On arrival, early on Saturday we were expecting a light 10-12 knots in the sun but were greeted by a steady 13-15 knots with an overcast sky.
We launched on time and made our way up to the race course. As it was quite breezy many of the middle weight sailors were looking to have a good weekend. The race committee managed to get the 3 planned races in both days. CONGRATULATIONS GO TO CRISPIN BEAUMONT FOR SAILING AN ALMOST PERFECT REGATTA AND FOR WINNING THE EVENT overall and also to everyone who took part to make it challenging racing. Many thanks go to the PRO and his team, the safety boat crews and everybody else who made the event happen. I would recommend everybody who competed to attend the next event in Derwent in July.

Boat Park Spring Audit

The Spring audit of the boat park is taking place and now is a good time to remind members to notify the Club if there are any changes in the use of a boat space.

Please do not bring additional boats to the Club without prior approval, as an unoccupied boat space does not mean it is unallocated.

Club Rules do not allow road trailers to be left on site. However, this rule is not currently enforced, in recognition of the difficulty in storing them at home.

In order for this facility to continue, please store trailers sensibly. They can be left under a dinghy, preferably immobilised, as long as they are not a hazard to other dinghies or members.

Alternatively, they can be left immobilised alongside, or secured to, the top boundary fence. The road trailer should be labelled indicating the boat space it belongs to and the appropriate fee paid to Mark Perrigo.

There are currently a number of unsecured and/ or unidentified trailers lying aound. If one of these is yours, please secure and identify it prior to the Club AGM on 21st April.

After this date, such trailers will be disposed of at scrap or market value.
