What a great month June has been; the sun has been shining, the wind has been blowing, and Bartley has had a full schedule:
The End of Series Regatta and working party was a great success and has improved the appearance of the club no end.
The Tuesday eveining sailing has grown from strength to strength with over 20 boats competing regularly.
Wednesday evening informal coaching has increased the participants confidence on the water as well as briefing them on different boat types in the dinghy park as possible next steps on their sailing journey. The programme was initially set for a one month trial and will now be continued through to the end of August due to its success.
K2O has a bumper year of new starters as well as progressing juniors from previous years through the RYA stages and some of the older members starting out on their Assistant Instructor qualification.
6 New members have joined us in June so if you see unfamiliar faces in the boat park please extend a warm welcome.
Bartley SUP continue their Wednesday Evening socials and full diary of paddle boarding, Rockley Watersports schedule is filling up over the holidays, and the Sea Scouts are out in force.
It is fantastic to see the water in use by so many different groups, and the social side taking off as folk enjoy a swift half in the sunshine after exploits on the water. Long may this continue.
So onto July - GOOD LUCK to all Bartley sailors taking part in the Supernova Nationals this weekend. We have high hopes individually and for a team prize so no pressure! Why not check the Supernova website and Facebook page to see how are team are getting on?
And finally, good luck to England in the Football on Saturday - those sailing may wish to negotiate race times around the coverage - I shall leave that up to you...!
