We have a bunch of great social activities coming up for the BOD Fleet over the next couple of months so please put the following in your diaries and join us for more BOD fun and games.
First up is the Final Fling Race and Sunday Lunch which is approaching fast on Sunday 5 October. The Final Fling Race is always well attended so let’s get as many of us out on the water as possible for one last big race of the season. The race start is 10.30 from Bateman’s Tower and it will be followed by lunch at 13.30 at the Colne Yacht Club for all BOD sailors, friends and family. The lunch will be a traditional Sunday Lunch carvery with beef, turkey, gammon and a vegetarian option plus all the trimmings, followed by a choice of hot and cold puddings and tea or coffee – all for the excellent price of £14.50 a head. Tickets must be reserved in advance by no later than Wednesday 1 October via the CYC Bar or by calling the CYC Office on 01206 302594.
Next up for your diaries are the Laying Up Suppers of Brightlingsea Sailing Club on Saturday 25 October, followed by the Colne Yacht Club on Saturday 1 November. Further information on both of these will be published shortly or check with the clubs for more details.
And finally please mark your diaries with the BOD Mexican Night at CYC on Saturday 22 November. Hot on the heels of our hugely successful German Night in the summer the BODs will be hosting a winter bash. More info will follow shortly but put it in your diaries and start looking for your sombreros and ponchos and practising your salsa steps now!
