Can I learn to sail?
The club is keen to encourage new sailors and for that reason the club will arrange courses for both adults and juniors on a regular basis. BRSC encourages all members to be actively involved with all aspect of sailing. Training is available for race officers, safety boat crews and onshore support staff. The club is a recognised RYA Sail Training Centre and courses are arranged for adults and juniors throughout the season.
Do I need to own a boat to sail here?
The club has a selection of boats and windsurfing equipment for both adults and juniors which are primarily available for training purposes, but are often available for our trained members.
Can I take part in racing?
Racing is run for all members and for all levels of experience. For those that don’t own a boat, opportunities to crew with experienced members are available.
Do I have to be able to sail, to become a member?
No. BRSC is first and foremost a relaxing pleasant place to be. The sailing is obviously the main activity but not the only one. Non sailing members have all the benefits sailors do, but don’t have to get wet! With a pool table, quiz nights, discos, live bands, barbecues on the lawn and the club bar, it’s a great place to unwind for you and your family.
BRSC is run primarily by volunteers and the club would not function smoothly without them. Therefore, we ask all our members to commit to supporting the club however they can. We regularly have club tidy up days and welcome help at these as well as water activity help.
To help with this we are introducing a 2 hour a year ‘duty’ expectation and program called Dutyman where you can sign up to help.
