Brussels International Sailing Club (BISC) vzw is about sailing, as simple as that! We are not a formal or commercial club, nor are we all expert sailors. What everyone in the club has in common is that we enjoy messing about in or with boats. That can mean small boat sailing in Holland on summer Sundays or longer small-group cruises, also in Holland, the Channel or further afield. We are a member of VYF (“Vlaamse Yachting Federatie “) through which we have our liability insurance and from which we receive guidance on conformity to administration and rules in Belgium. (Please see www.VYF.be or http://www.vyf.be/fr/irc-53.htm (french copy) for further details).
As a small club we encourage every member to organise some activity, it can be anything as long as it is connected to sailing in some way. As well as sailing activities we have educational evenings where we get someone to talk about a recent trip,. In the past we have visited the bridge on a cross-channel ferry, we have even practised getting into a life-raft in a swimming pool (it can be difficult)!
Plus there are informal socials, dinners, slide evenings, perhaps the odd quiz or two. You don’t have to be sailors yourselves, as long as you are willing to learn. Every year we inspire a few people to take things further and start taking courses under the British RYA (Royal Yachting Association).
Join us for a day of a sailing on the Grevelingen meer. We sail with Fox 22 (3-4 pers. per boat up to 7 people can join) on the Grevelingen meer (Bruinisse, NL). This is an event for beginners or advanced sailors. The event will costs around €40-€55 (depending on the amount of participants). We will meet at the charterer (Aquavitesse) at 09:00 on the 27th of September. The address of the charter is: Jachthavenweg 74, 4311 NC Bruinisse, Netherlands Make sure you’re on time! We sail all day and have lunch on the boats picnic style (Bring your own lunch!) . We will start heading back to Brussels at around 18:00. Please bring warm and waterproof clothing in case of showers. Life jackets are included by the charterer in rental cost.
