Time to Pay Up!


Yes – it’s that time again!

Next month you will probably receive an e-mail with an invoice from your Treasurer requesting payment of your CBYA membership subscription. This is normally issued on the anniversary of your first payment, so if you joined the CBYA later in the year, that is when you can expect to receive your invoice.

We prefer not to receive cash payments, so please pay on-line by bank transfer. Most Spanish banks will now waive commission fees if requested, so this mode of payment should not cost any extra. If you are paying from outside Spain, you could consider using one of the many cash transfer services, such as Transferwise

It would also be helpful if you could pay promptly!

Many thanks.

Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year!

The Treasurer

The CBYA Dinghy Section Sails Again!


The CBYA Dinghy Section re-launch on Tuesday 4th December was a BIG success. The weather and sailing conditions were ideal, and over thirty members turned up to support the event.

We launched both Lasers, and the 420 (without a gib due to the lack of a luff wire), and Tristan brought his wife (Diana’s) inflatable around in support. Richard also brought Tricky D, with Peter Knowles as crew.
