This photo was taken in Dale on Monday but beware, its not over yet ! "Storm Brian" is building for Saturday. This coincides with spring tides so it could have quite an impact on The Bristol Channel !

Boat thieves are about. An outboard was recently stolen from a boat afloat at Chepstow and District Yacht Club. The thieves arrived by sea. Police have asked the BCYA to raise awareness !

Yacht Racing really is the ultimate adrenalin rush. 12 knots downwind on one of these feels like 300mph on a formula 1 car.....only formula 1 cars cant do 300mph !!!

As the cold weather approaches, boaters are reminded to be safe with wood-burners.
1. Do not overfire
2. Ensure no leakage of fumes into boat
3. Keep any combustible materials well clear of the fire as excessive heat can cause combustion.

Just a fabulous BCYA English Coast Rally in Watchet over August Bank Holiday weekend. The Marina was full to capacity. The music was great, the hog roasts fantastic and the fireworks were amazing. Next BCYA Rally will be "THE GLOUCESTER BIG BASH AND SHANTY FESTIVAL" at the end of May Bank Holiday ! Usual discounts, Free drinks reception and great entertainment.
