Sunday Afternoon Sailing at BSSC!

General Information No Comments »

Summer is so short and what better way to really enjoy it than going for a sail on Sunday afternoons!  Join other club members at Noon every Sunday.  Rig your boat up and hit the water for a regular afternoon of sun and fun in the great outdoors.  Bring you family and friends and something to BBQ too!  If you are concerned about safety when sailing alone from the club, this is your chance to sail knowing that someone is watching and there to help you should the need arise.

First Sunday Sail will be July 13th and every subsequent Sunday thereafter through until the end of August.
