The date is finally set for our bi-annual weekend trip to the RAN Marina on Sotra. The fun will take place from 16.10.15 – 18.10.15.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this event; It is a weekend of sailing, fishing and socializing at the RAN Sailing Club on Sotra. We rented a cabin there where we get to hang out, have barbecue and beer, and get to know fellow members of BSI Sailing.. This is also a great opportunity for beginners to practice on some maneuvers out in the fjord.
Due to limited sleeping space on the cabin we will have to limit the the number of participants to around 40. So if you want to sign up, register in the registration form below. First come, first served! We will close the registration when we are full and have a waiting list. Remeber that the registration is only valid by signing up via the form. Simply pressing attend at the event page is not sufficient.
The registration form can be found here. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?usp=drive_web&formkey=dGxuSG5PeWxRUkoxajFtU0NxVnpEemc6MA#gid=0
—How to get to and from RAN—
One can either sail with one of our Albin Expresses leaving Friday afternoon from our dock at Elsesro Marina, or take the bus. The sail time will take ca. two hours. If you want to sail to RAN, please contact the skipper concerned, shown in the “seilplanen”. Those who do not get a chance to sail to RAN will be prioritized on the way back if they wish.
The Bus 445 leaves from Bergen Bystajonen to Anglevik Snuplass. To find out when you should take the bus, take a look at skyss.no.
Ask the bus driver to let you off at the last bus stop Anglevik Snuplass, which is a 5 minute walk from the RAN Marina. Just walk towards the sea, turn right, walk over the parking lot and you’re there. The cabin is behind the main marina building on the small hill.
