The details of Charlie's funeral are now available and it will take place at the Three Countie's Crematorium, Halstead Road, Braintree CM7 5PB on Monday 2 October at 12.00hrs followed by a wake at the Blackwater Sailing Club.
Over the weekend of 23-24th September eleven BSC Cadet sailors attended the RYA East Zone Championship at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club. Five collected medals for their performances in the Optimist and Topper classes. The club also won the prize for sending the largest number of sailors from a single club to the event.
Many congratulations to all those who took part, you are great ambassadors for the club and continue to provide evidence of the club's growing strength and reputation at the junior level.
