The BCYA have changed the Bristol Channel Club Of The Year award from a rather worn out trophy held for the year of award, to a framed certificate which clubs can proudly hang permanently in pride of place. We think that this is a more fitting award for a club and we hope that some clubs will aim to proudly earn a collection over the years. The winners in 2017 were Thornbury Sailing Club and we couldn’t wait to start this new trend going so we will be swapping the old trophy awarded in July for a new certificate right away.
The 2018 award will be made at the BCYA Welsh Coast Rally in Cardiff on July 14th - It could be your Club !

Sadly the sun has gone down on the life of Robert Lee-Warner. Robert dedicated a huge part of his long life which spanned 94 years to sailing. He was a past director of the RYA and past chairman of the BCYA. He was very much a father figure to both organisations. Robert had a certain swagger and grace about him, a real gentleman sailor whose memory will live on in the history of the BCYA.
