BSC Sailing committee meeting Wed 3rd 7pm

BSC Sailing committee meeting Wed 3rd 7pm

We are at a stage that we need to compile a list of actions and strategy to improve both the racing and general sailing activities including racing etc.

Like you I am keen to ensure BSC grows and therefore that the Bartley Sailing Club sailing committee listens and ACTS on ideas.

This Wed 3rd 7pm is the planned S.Com monthly meeting where I’m hoping it’s well-attended and at which you and any club member wishing to contribute is welcome.

Please can you therefore confirm if you can attend….

The main committee have asked me to build on the previous successes that Guy and Mike achieved in the chair, so I thought that it would be a good opportunity for us all to:-

  • Take stock of BSC positives
  • Review the opportunities
  • Develop a defined list of actions that need

There has been a number of emails flying around, concerning a number of points that we as the Sailing Club sailing committee should consider as:-

  1. Training – what is available to members - when best to do it, who can deliver and offer support
  2. Racing formats – times between races type of races
  3. Getting members back on the water
  4. Open meeting formats and combined fleets
  5. Bart’s Bash event

Please can you consider the above and let me have your thoughts

Kind regards

John

Rachel Luckman, is finally hanging up her dry suit

Dear All,  Rachel Luckman

 

After 15 wonderful years with Bartley, I am finally hanging up my dry suit.

It has been a tremendous pleasure to sail with you all, whether I was racing

you, being coached by you, or you were pulling me out of the water. I have

recommended Bartley to a quite a number of people, some whom, I see, have

become members.

 

Regrettably, there are now so many competing pressures on my time that

sailing is no longer an option. But I will never forget you all.

 

I wish you all calm water and fair winds,

 

Rachel

RYA - PUSH THE BOAT OUT DAY 16th May

RYA - Push the Boat Out is back for 2015!

Saturday 16th May 2015 - 10.30 - 14.30

Everyone is welcome to come and see Bartley Sailing Club in action.

To pre-book a sail in one of our boats with an instructor/club member please email

Stating your name and preferred time and we will contact you.

At Bartley sailing club we are hosting the local RYA PUSH THE BOAT OUT DAY on 16th May (10.30 - 14.30) which is aimed at encouraging people to sail and enjoy this fabulous sport.

Its an ideal opportunity to visit the club, see the on and off water facilities and have a chance to see the club in action.

If you are new to sailing, our sailors (and windsurfers) will be around to share their experiences, talk about training, how you start to get on the water, improving your skills, owning your own boat and involving the whole family.

Club members will also be able to take you out for a short sail if you have never sailed before – please bring clothing and footwear that you do not mind getting wet – buoyancy aids will be available to borrow. To be assured of a sailing trip, please pre book a time by contacting us via Email

In 2014, we had a great turnout and interest from local people on the day who enjoyed the wonderful weather and chance to experience sailing on the West Midlands premier reservoir.

BSC Push the Boat day is for people to again experience sailing and windsurfing at ‘have a go’ taster sessions.

Whether you’re a regular BSC sailor, or new to the sport or simply want a day out with the family, Push the Boat Out provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to get out on the water and have a great day out.

RYA Push the Boat Out is all about people coming to see BSC and discovering just how easy it is to get involved in a fantastic social outdoor sport.

For existing BSC members please feel free to bring a friend down for the day

"This programme is a fantastic opportunity for Bartley Sailing club to show what we are all about and to encourage as many people as possible to sign up and join in our club. This is our chance to showcase why boating is such a fantastic sport and encourage more people of all ages and abilities to see how easy it is to get involved and to hopefully become hooked on boating for life!"

Gareth Brookes from the RYA is here to help along with Ann Kelly and Howard Eeles all who are looking to promote this wonderful event.

We would be grateful if you can indicate if you are able to join us for Push the Boat Out day

Kind regards

ITS arrived TUESDAY NIGHT RACING Lasers Week three results

ITS arrived TUESDAY NIGHT RACING Lasers  Week three results

Hi Please see attached up to week three Laser results

 

Yet another Tuesday comes and goes, and what a belter it was, great breeze and not too cold. Once again we managed to field a fleet of all rigs and abilities. Our 2 radials coping well with the conditions, being split by John, closely followed by Howard who seemed to be missing someone else in the boat to talk to….. apart from the fish at one point! Jeremy and Michael seemed to be tethered together for most of the race with 2 seconds to separate them at the finish, Robin couldn’t make ground on John and failed to put distance between him and Michael and Jeremy not matter how hard he tried (and he did try hard!), John as usual, was the noisiest on the water, and was lucky not to find himself in the protest room, and that only leaves our potential Olympian, Ed. He set off in front and showed no intention of letting anyone get close to him. Obviously his Dad is continuing to coach him well! A fautless performance.

 

Thanks to our duty crew, Brad and Richard. I bet Richard spent all duty thinking that the conditions would have been perfect for him!

 

See you all on the weekend for the biggest Laser extravaganza to ever visit BSC.

 

Regards

 

Robin Pitt

Any other volunteers wanting to wright a report please?

See you sat

Paul Archer was rewarded for his efforts throughout the year and most notably installing a new hot water system which has been greatly received by all the membership. Paul, Rachel and the team put on a wonderful array of Chilli and Curry followed by pies and cakes which was well received.

One of the highlights all the evening was the "BOAT RACE"….. Various teams battled for supremacy and following a few protests for cheating!!! etc Sam Knight was victorious followed by Simon Hardiman in second.

We announced over 60 winners and although not everyone was able to attend those who did seem to really enjoy a great evening at the club.

Thanks must go to Mike Gibson commodore for his kind words and for presenting every prize winner also Guy Mason who helped organize a glassware to ensure the correct winners received their trophy.

BSC committee were glad that members had a fantastic evening and enjoyed the various activities and although nobody won the £100,000 raffle prize we still feels everyone was a winner.

Debbie Degge, Sam Knight, John Ling, Mike Gibson, Phil Bright, Robin Pitt, Ian Clarke, Crispen Beaumont, Steve Hawley, Caroline Whitehouse. For a full set of results take a look at the Bart's Bash web site.

Overal It was great to see over 102 sailors on the water and in the end raising £520 so far, with a further £100 approx donated directly after the closing date.

Bartley Sailing Club has a fabulous opportunity to continue to build on the good feel factor and therefore our Commodore Mike Gibson and his team have worked hard behind the scenes to organise many exciting events for next year for everyone to join in with. So please continue your support by coming to the club and enjoying what we have on offer “BARTLEY S C THE PREMIER SAILING CLUB IN WEST MIDLANDS”

We look forward to seeing you all out on the water very soon.

FINAL RESULTS published - Over 30,000 people took to the water for the first Bart's Bash!    


      Our final results, now PUBLISHED!!!, show an amazing 30,717 participants took to the water, many for their first time, around the world, for the first “Bart’s Bash” on 21 September 2014.
       
      As you know, the sailing race was a fund raising event in memory of Andrew Simpson, the Olympic sailor who died in a training accident in May 2013. We are delighted to say that we all raised over a quarter of a million pounds - a phenomenal amount and we are so grateful.
       
      Since race day the Bart's Bash results team has been busy compiling and processing tens of thousands of results and can now confirm that an incredible sixteen thousand, eight hundred and seventy (16,870) boats collectively sailed a staggering eighty seven million, seventy two thousand, seven hundred and sixty nine (87,072,769) metres, roughly the equivalent of sailing twice around the world. CIRCUM-DOUBLE-BOOM!!
     
      Overall winners were; Hans Wallen sailing at Cape Crow Yacht Club in Sweden in an M32 Catamaran, Riccardo Macchiavello sailing at Circolo Nautico Rapallo in Italy in an Altura 1101 and Grant Piggott sailing at Weston Sailing Club in Great Britain in a Nacra 17. For the final results table please visit http://www.bartsbash.co.uk/results/table
       
      Initially, we had hoped for fifty (50) clubs to sign up with two thousand (2000) participants in the UK. As you know, shortly after we announced the event we had 100 clubs within one week. Every day since our global event has grown faster than James' Giant Peach...
       
      Delta Lloyd open Dutch Championships recorded the highest numbers of boats sailing from the club at 233. In the UK Parkstone Yacht Club recorded a whopping one hundred and ninety four (194) boats on the water.
       
      The Laser Standard dominated the dinghy class leader board, taking the top spot with one thousand six hundred and seventy seven (1,677) entries, Optimists were in second place with one thousand one hundred and seventy eight (1178) boats on the water and the Laser Radial took third with nine hundred and fifty three (953) boats.
       
      Event Manager for Bart's Bash, Tim Anderton said "At no point could we ever have expected over five hundred (500) clubs in over sixty (60) countries to embrace the idea of getting on the water, racing, having fun and celebrating everything Bart stood for. This has to be one of the largest sailing participation events in the world. We would like to thank all those who took part in the event and a special thank to the volunteers, over seven thousand of them, who made it possible."
       
      To view a video showing the highlights of the day please visit http://youtu.be/NxOC8ICaqPI
     
      You all took part and rocked the socks off the sailing world in some way - our hats are doffed to you and we hope you enjoy seeing your global rankings!! In case you have got the bug, there maybe a big announcement about Bart's Bash 2 - 'The Second Sail' on December 17th, this year. #justsayin'
     
      Thank you so much for being a part of this. Best wishes from Jez, Tony, Tim and the whole Bart's Bash team.

Debbie Degge Best Top Lady sailor

Debbie Degge Best Top Lady sailor

Debbie Degge is 2nd Streaker National Champion 2014

Recently I had the pleasure of talking to Debbie after her recent victory and in her own words....

"Whilst I had thought of myself as a “has been” circuit racer of the 80/90’s, it was nice to be competitive at the Nationals, if only a second place it’s was an improvement on a previous 4th at the Streaker Nationals".

Apparently she only entered to find out how the new boat would perform, as this Butler hull felt different to the Rooster she use to have, and was encouraged to do so after winning the Emberton Park Open 2014. In fact she claims to be considering winding down to just Club Racing, trying to beat Mr Ling/Gibson etc and eventually the olds single handed Mirror fleet !! we know her brilliants is still very much there.... as proven by winning the larger ever local BSC race Barts Bash 2014.

 

As Debbie said It would be interesting to find out about early successes of many older sailors at the club, as she states today’s results are tomorrows Chip paper (or would have been at one time). Her previous success are long distant history, having won opens in five different single handers, Topper, Europe, Comet, Laser, Streaker, and was just proud to qualify for the Endeavour Trophy.

 

DEBBIE DEGGE SAILING BRIEF:-

In the early days of segregation with dedicated Ladies Nationals, she won the Ladies National Pursuit Race 3 times with wonderful prizes such as a holiday for 4 in Greece, and also won the Ladies Single Handed National Championship.

 

Then on to Toppers and before Winning the Worlds, in previous years I finished 2nd and 4th, and 3rd at Europeans/Nationals. Trying to beat among others a young John Ling from Kessingland to Worlds Qualification points, against John Caig, Ian Fryett, Andy Rice, Hugh Styles, Andy Carter – a few names I remember well, with memorable highlights of leading over 100 boats the wrong way round the windward mark in one event.

 

After that I won the Comet Inlands and then have had fun sailing more classes than I could name, from many single handers to Fireballs/GP’s/Larks etc, and even crewed a 505 one winter HA HA.

 

Well the old dear didn’t do too badly, but enough of memory lane, maybe there is a bit of racing left in her yet. Off to Cornwall next weekend, so see you on the water in a few weeks.

 

Debs

 

EDITOR NOTE

Well best of luck next week Debbie, on behalf of the whole Bartley Sailing Club we are proud to still have you with us and still showing us around on the water!!! You are a great ambassador and an assest to BSC 

Rgs

John

Top Bartley Sailor Ed Higson gets selected by RYA

Top Bartley Sailor Ed Higson gets selected by RYA

 

At Bartley we all know how good Edward Higson is but now after recent success on the national scene the RYA have selected him to join the Radial National Youth Squad 2014/5

 

This means that Ed will attend their special training camps and have his skills harness in order that hopefully he can go on to Win a medal at the World or European Championships. After which he will set his sights on qualifying for a place on the Team GBR in teh ISAF Worlds!!!. Ed is a great lad with lots to offer and so we are also hoping that he will attend some of the Activate Clinics that BARTLEY will be hosting so that club members can learn some new techniques.

 

Like his Dad (Jeremy) we are all very proud of his sailing achievements.

 

Go for it ED.....

 

To help him on his campaign he is now looking for sponsorship so if anyone fancies help out to get their name logo etc out on the national circuit I’m sure Ed would be delighted for the support.

 

Therefore please contact Jeremy higson []

Bartley’s Bart’s Bash ...WOW !!!

Bartley’s Bart’s Bash ...WOW !!!

What a day, we achieved an incredible result with just over 70 boats on the water.... with 32 double hander’s, making nearly 100 sailors taking part in a memorable occasion for everyone.

I’m delighted with the amazing sprit of club members and visitors , which so far we raised just shy of £500 and with many donating direct the actually figure is possible far higher.

Finally I have managed to sort out the online Race results sheet and we now await and see the provisional global results.

Once again big thanks must go to Pete Storey and Colin Staite who stayed remarkable calm throughout the whole day, Mick Quickfall for being our official Witness and was still out there rechecking the course length well after the presentation. Also thanks’ to the rescue team headed by Dave Jones who managed to capture (along with others) some great visuals of the day.

This must go down as one our highlights of the year......may it long continue

Kind regards

John
