We are a friendly, family orientated club in the weald of Kent about 5 miles to the west of Sevenoaks. The club is run by the members for the members and offers first class sailing in an unspoilt location with easy access to the water. BBSC offers general sailing, training at all levels, regular club racing and open meetings supplemented by a growing series of social events. We welcome beginners and experienced sailors alike and a variety of classes are sailed at the club. Our clubhouse offers hot food and a bar at the weekends, often enjoyed by members using our sun terrace overlooking the stunning views. Do come and have a look round the club as new members are welcome.

As there was no session on 30th November, and the session before had finished early because of no wind, this Sunday needed to happen! The day started grey and a bit gusty but was clearing up and by mid day we had sun and some wind. The plan was to run more of the ‘slow tacking’ e..
