WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR?

Enjoying one of the best climates in the UK, sailing at BYHC is often warmer and more comfortable than elsewhere, Nevertheless, sometimes it can be chillier out on the water and you whilst we can guarantee you will have fun we can't guarantee you won't get wet, so it is advisable to bring something warm to wear, a waterproof jacket, a spare set of clothes, old shoes (e.g. trainers/pumps/beach shoes) and a towel. BHYC has changing facilities and buoyancy aids will be provided.

HOW WILL THE DAY WORK?

The club will be open from 10am until 4pm, however during the day this year we have allocated specific slots for 'On the Water' sessions, the reason we have done this is because we want to make sure we have some ideas of numbers of people wanting to get out on the water at specific times to avoid too much hanging around if we experience very busy times. You don't need to book the 'On the Water' session and we will do our very best to get you out on the water if you haven't booked, but priority will be given to those who have pre-booked.

10:00 - 16:00 - General Admission

10:00 Session 1 "On the Water"

11.00 Session 2 "On the Water"

11.45 Exhibition of club racing plus a power boat demonstration


WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE ARRIVE?

When you arrive at the club please come to the Welcome desk in the Club House so we can get you togged up and ready to go if you plan to get out on the water or we you will meet someone who can take you on a tour of our facilities. We will also ask you to sign a consent form before you head out on the water.

WHAT IF I CAN'T COME ON THE 12TH MAY?

If you are not free on Saturday 12th, please don't let that stop you getting in touch either by email or phone. We always welcome potential new members to the club so that you can look around, see our boats, chat to our members and let us share our enthusiasm for sailing with you.
