Sunday September 21st is now 'Bart's Bash' with as many boats on the starting line as possible at 10:00 that day. The winner of this race will be presented with the Governor's Trophy the race for which was cancelled earlier in the season.
At present we only have 20 people signed up. To take part in the Guinness World Record we need 25 boats to the starting line. At present there are only two Scows signed up. If you would like to take part and wish to use a Club boat, please let us know and sign up on the Bart's Bash Web site under Bradng Haven Yacht Club.
This Saturday we are inviting all Cadets and anybody who wants to sail a Pico and have some racing practice. The start time on the Water is 9:30 so if you wish to join in please come down to the club at 8:30 to get the boat rigged in time to go out. We will then set up a short course and do a number of races. The number will depend on the weather conditions, with an expected finish at 12:00.

We are delighted to be working in conjunction with The Earl Mountbatten Hospice in organising another fabulous Fashion Show at the Club on Tuesday 7th October. Tickets are available to purchase from the bar at £6. All profits will be donated to the hospice and we ask all members to donate any unwanted clean, good quality clothing (including sailing attire) to the event. Donations can be left at the Club at any time. Thank you.
Please could all Members display a BHYC car sticker in their vehicles? If you do not have one, they can be obtained from the bar free of charge. This is in order to try and prevent unauthorised vehicles parking in the Club car park.
The Galley's Thursday Theme for Thursday September 18th will be 'Pies'. The theme for Thursday September 25th will be 'From the Grill'. Please assist Greg and Tara by booking in advance where possible. Please ring 872289.
It is with great regret that I have to advise everybody that the decision has been made to cancel Chris Dean's Music Night. There are two reasons for doing so; the first is that a member of the family of one of the group has a very serious health problem which could mean that he would not be able to take part. I have been aware of this situation since the end of last week and although it might be possible to get a deputy I feel it is not fair to put pressure on Chris and the group member concerned to perform at the Club. For that reason we have not pushed ticket sales over the last few days which means that we are someway short of reaching break even for the event. I hope we will be able to rearrange the evening in the Spring. In the meantime I am sure everybody will join me in sending the person concerned our very best wishes.
Andrew 'Bart' Simpson was a Gold and Silver Olympic medallist and America Cup sailor who was tragically killed in an America Cup training accident in 2013. The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) was founded by Sir Ben Ainslie, Iain Percy OBE and Andrew's wife Leah to honour him by encouraging youngsters into sailing and to enjoy the water as much as he did. There is no entry fee to the race, but there is a suggested £5.00 minimum donation to take part in aid of ASSF.
Details of the race at BHYC on Sunday 21st September will be available in due course, however we do have a race planned on that date as part of our Autumn Series (Committee Boat Start 10:00) and it is expected that our 'Bart's Bash' race will be organised in conjunction with our existing programme. An IMPORTANT aspect is that we need to have a minimum of 25 dinghies on the Start Line to qualify for the World Record attempt. You need to sign up to enter the event and there is an option to donate via 'Just Giving'. You can find out more details about 'Bart's Bash' and ASSF and how to enter and donate by visiting the BHYC event micro site.
