**** Important Edit ****

As there have been a large number of enquiries already, the BVSC have decided that Saturdays race will be a single race of approximately 3 hours duration.

This will allow for a more streamlined starting procedure considering there will be starts for each of 3 divisions.

Shameless bump!!

If the weather predicted is anything like Saturday just gone it is going to make for some exhilarating sailing! The guys had a good 10-12knots on the dam, combined with some good winters sunshine to warm up in once off the water and dry.

Hope to see you all there.
