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.
