Boat Blog: BCN Marathon Challenge 2010

Posted by indigodream on 18 January, 2010

We received our copy of Boundary Post today (the BCN Society’s newsletter).

The exciting news is that the BCN Marathon Challenge is on again this year – put this date in your diaries….

May 29th – 30th 2010

We’ve decided to take part again this year and work our 2010 Odyssey round it – this means that we may not get so far north but there’s plenty to explore in the East so I’m sure we won’t get bored.

If you have a boat in the vicinity of the area in May then we can thoroughly recommend taking part.

If you don’t have a boat then get in touch via the comments – we have room for up to 8  ‘day’  crew members but we can only offer overnight accommodation to 2 ‘night’ crew, preferably people who don’t mind sharing a bed (with each other and possibly with Lou the greyhound!).

Health warning: we may be grumpy at 5am and towards the end of the second day!

Readers will already know that we did a ‘live’ blog of the challenge last year – looking back I can’t quite believe we managed that. I wonder if we could do the same this year. I have to point out that our account of last year’s challenge is definitely not a guide on how to win 🙂

I’m so looking forward to getting our application sorted – the planning last year was almost as much fun as taking part – that map of the BCN will soon be adorning our lounge wall again……..

    Hi Sue, is there an application pack yet or is that down the line a bit? Anyone who I can register our interest with? Reckon we’ll give it a go, work permitting, so see you in Brum sometime, although hopefully before that too! Pack all well and sporting new fleece coats with snoods. Best to you all. Sx

    Hi Greygal, so good to hear from you – Happy New Year!

    Snoods are THE accessory for greys this year – glad to see that your pack is keeping ‘en vogue’. Blue and Lou are bereft – they can stomp around in their old jackets, just like us!

    There is an entry pack for the BCN Challenge – contact Roy Kenn, 14 Hollemeadow Avenue, Walsall, West Midlands, WS3 1JQ. Telephone: 01922 428644

    It costs a measly £15 per boat (which included a year’s membership of the BCN Society).

    Of course, if you and the pack wanted to join us as crew then just let us know – no need to send your CVs 🙂
