July Newsletter

Kingsbridge Estuary Boat Club Even on the water it is hot.  The sea breeze just about works in the Bag; it brings little relief but enjoy the summer while it lasts.  Your committee met last week, again using the Zoom platform which I hope we can abandon soon. Our events organiser, Linda Lee, in conjunction with the […]

May Newsletter

I am sorry to start this message with the sad news of the death of Richard Benton, our Boatwatch coordinator.  We extend our condolences to Adrienne and all his family.  Richard will be missed throughout the Kingsbridge community as he did not confine his efforts only to this club.  His work on the Boatwatch scheme […]

December Newsletter

It has taken me a week to overcome the euphoria felt after the hugely succesful wine tasting evening last Wednesday.  Admittedly attendance was  not high but, for a Zoom meeting, the enthusiastic crowd were easy to manage, discipline was good and we all learnt a lot.  A repeat, by popular demand, will take place in the New […]
