September 2016 Newsletter

This Saturday sees the return of The Great River Race including Deborah Price and her team aiming to raise £5000+ for the AHOY charity, supporting vulnerable young people. As of today, they have just passed £3150, so continue to welcome all donations, however small.  Steve will be cooking up his usual BBQ for spectators at Brentford Dock, all in aid of the RNLI, so please don't forget to go along with some friends and buy a burger.

Just a reminder about the Moonlight Cruise on 7th October which will be leaving at around 6pm. If you would like to bring your boats or come along as crew, please let me know.

Best wishes  

Andrew Kirkwood

Coming Up  

Saturday 3rd September - Great River Race BBQ     
As Brentford Dock Marina has a great view just 4 miles from the finish, we will once again be holding a charity BBQ on the riverbank in aid of the RNLI. Steve will be doing the cooking as usual, so all you need to bring is some money to buy a burger and a bottle or two of your favourite tipple. The river will be closed to boating anyway, so do come along and support. Steve will be cooking from around 1pm onwards, with the first boats estimated to pass from around 2.30/3pm onwards.  

Assistance setting us in the morning is always welcome, as are additional salads etc. If you are able to help out, or donate a salad etc, please liaise with Steve at or give him a call on 07710-990413.
If you would like to support Deborah and her team and make a donation to the  The AHOY Centre, a Watersports based Charity teaching transferable and employable skills through sailing and rowing, please click this link to

Saturday 17th September - Late Lunch at the Anglers  
Anne Brunsdon, a long standing BCC member who lives on the Estate, will be 89 on Saturday 17th and is planning to celebrate her birthday with a boat trip up to the Anglers for a late lunch. Other boats and their crews are welcome to join the trip, however of you plan to do so, please let me know so that we can ensure we book accordingly. HW is at 16:07 so the boats will probably lock out at around 13.45

Friday 7th October - Moonlight Cruise
I have booked 4 berths at Limehouse for the Moonlight cruise so skippers please let me know if you would like to take your boat. We will be setting off around 18:00hrs to cruise through London as the lights come on, arriving in Limehouse around 20.30hrs in time for beer and a curry. Crew can then return to Brentford on the DLR or alternatively use the DLR to join the boats for the journey back on Saturday.  If you would like to join this cruise please let me know.
