Next Sunday 2nd July is ‘Get Afloat’. It would be great to see lots of members out on the water. There will be many different boats available, so come along and try something new, or bring your own boat to give others a go. There will be life jackets and sailing gear available to borrow and lots of help on hand, so even if you’ve never been on a boat before, you’ll be taken care of. We will finish the fun with a BBQ back at the club.
The plan for the day is to:
Be at club at 12:00 to help rig & prepare boats.
Leave slipway at 12:45
High tide 2:00
Return to club for free BBQ after sailing.
If you’re planning to stay for the BBQ please let Mim know so we have an idea of numbers. firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone is welcome!
Rob will open the bar at 5:30 next Thursday evening 8th June; the 3.14m tide will be up at 19:06 with currently what’s forcast as a SW wind, about force 3 – ideal!
The BBQ will be available for those that want to eat – just bring along your own food.
The webcam at Wells Harbour is now live.

This year we are not doing online registration and will ask you to complete the entry form when you come to register but it would be very useful if you would email me if you intend to enter so we have an idea of numbers. I will acknowledge your email and send you the sailing instructions so you can get your questions ready for the briefing!.
Full details will be posted on the Wells SC website soon and we will put a list of current entrants on the website and also BSOA Facebook / Wells SC Facebook pages.
We are expecting a decent turnout with visitors from Holland and Germany already confirmed and we know we will receive a friendly welcome from Wells SC.
A message from Wells harbour.
News - 1 - Notice to Mariners - Change to navigable channel
This link is fairly self explanatory, instead of the channel following the marsh and then two right angle bends to pass to the south of ‘Dickie’s Island’, it cuts from the marsh side about half way down, across to the beach bank roughly opposite the catamaran to the west of Dickie’s Island’. They dredged there last week to help block off the old route. The port hand buoys are now accurate.
Many people have fond memories of Wells Carnival when it was more water based. The Carnival committee wonder it there is anyone who is interested in helping to bring back some of these activities. We’ve been told about tug of war, marsh jumping and rowing races but need more information,maybe we can do something with the growing kayak fleet.
If you would like to help please contact Paula and Peter- email@example.com or call 01328 711818.
