The season so far...
Wow where did that come from? The fabulous weather that has revitalised our sailing in August and September. Many members have taken advantage of this and been out on the water at home and abroad. We've also seen an increase in participation at event evening meals by those unable to attend by boat.
What's still to come on the water?
As noted elsewhere, we still have the Heybridge Hideaway (15 October) on our sailing agenda. Well worth making an effort for: a) because it's the last chance this year to sail with your BCC mates (and Skippers); b) because we always have fun when locked up in Heybridge; c) we need to see your take on the pirate fancy dress theme.

Event ideas for 2017
Now is the time to let me know what you'd like to see on next year's programme. What would you like to see more/less of? What haven't we thought of that you think might work well?
Last winter we had a couple of very successful shore based, off-season, events (the Tower Bridge tour and the East Coast Pilot lecture). We'll endeavour to repeat that success with events in January - March. Anything you'd particularly like to see?
Fatigue, old age and adventures mean that we have a couple of slots on the BCC Committee so if you'd really like to make your mark (or just get a little more involved) now's your chance.
As always, do keep in touch - ideas, suggestions (even complaints) are always welcome.
Looking forward to seeing you at the final events of the season and wishing you a happy, healthy and enjoyable end to 2016 afloat and ashore,
