Save the Date for the 2018 CBYA AGM!

Categories:

The 2018 CBYA AGM is scheduled to take place on Monday 5th March 2018 at the Real Club Náutico de Calpe. Please make a note in your calendar now.

James Morris has stepped down due to medical reasons, so we have a vacancy for a Membership Secretary. Rachel Garnham has kindly offered to act as a temporary Membership Secretary in the interim period up to the AGM.

We are also looking for other CBYA members who are willing to join the Committee to help us run our rapidly growing association. Although it is preferable, it is not necessary for Committee members to be permanent residents in Spain.

If you are interested in putting back some of what you get out of your CBYA membership, please contact Ann Masson, the CBYA Secretary, on secretary@cbya.org

The course focused on how to manoeuvre a sailing yacht under motor, in order to smoothly leave and enter a berth in the Mediterranean area. read more →

Padel and Build Your Own Burger

Categories:

 

On Saturday, 4 November, members of the CBYA enjoyed a special day of padel and build-your-own burger at Paris 24 in Javea.  This was, hopefully, the first of many more padel social events. All members who attended either had the chance to play or learn the technique, whilst some sat along the sidelines or enjoyed watching.
