Maylandsea Bay Sailing Club

Maylandsea Bay Week 29th July – 2nd Aug 2019

Registration Sunday 28th July.

The MBW 2019 Entry form can be downloaded here. (.xls)

The highlight of the year at MBSC is the annual regatta week. As usual, the MBW committee has been hard at work preparing for the event. While much of the week follows the tried and tested format, there are a few changes from last year. We have music on Friday night in the form of a DJ rather than a band. Fish & Chip night has been re-branded and Challenge Night remains on the agenda after a popular return last year.

The theme this year is "Space" to mark 50 years since the first landing on the moon. So bring any space themed equipment to decorate your campsite to reflect this. There will be a prize for the best dressed tent/campervan!

The price is unchanged from last year, and the £80 all in price is great value for a full week of sailing with food and entertainment every night. Where possible (as camping space will be limited this year) please bring a smaller sized tent.

The outline programme this year is:

  • 5 days of dinghy racing or 3 days of keel boat racing
  • 1 day with a sailing coach present to offer some sailing skills and tips
  • Draft social programme
    • Sunday – Registration, Rock (et) Roll Bingo, welcome drink with a “bring a plate” style buffet
    • Monday – 'Black Hole' Barbecue followed by Shake Uranus
    • Tuesday – Big Dipper (Pizza) and Galactic Games
    • Wednesday – Lasagne and Inter Stellar Quiz
    • Thursday – Neptune Supper and Challenge Night
    • Friday – Prize Giving buffet & Death Star DJ
    • Day time events when the tide is out - including Astro Jump assault course,  Treasure Hunt and more
    • And of course Pimms in the Park and Beer on the Balcony

All are welcome, whether camping, enjoying the evening entertainment or just having a fabulous week sailing.  The week works because everyone helps out. A duty rota will be available at registration, and all participants will be expected to volunteer for duties.

Please fill in the enclosed entry form*, and return it to Paul Gray by 23rdJune 2019. Places are restricted to 100 and are allocated on a first come first served basis, so get your form in early.  A limited number of club Pico boats are available for a small charge.

If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact Joe Raven / Rob Gray at joeraven_30@hotmail.comor any other members of the committee:  Vicky Broomfield, Phil Spillane, Katherine Wilkinson, Paul Gray & Celie Broomfield
