Please come and join us at the Club this Tuesday 6th December at 8.00pm (8.30pm to start singing, please come early not to miss the start) for an evening of carol singing with Rayleigh Brass Band.
All Club members and their guests are welcome. You will be able to enjoy some nibbles while you sing, courtesy of the Cruiser Section.
It’s that time of year again! All cadets are invited to come and join us for Yuletide fun on Sunday 11th December from 4.30-7.00pm (snacks 4.30-5.00pm).
Tickets are now available and priced at a bargain £5 each, which includes party snacks, disco, games and a visit from Santa! You can buy them, as usual, from behind the main bar.
Due to the expected demand and limited space, tickets are available for MEMBERS ONLY. Unfortunately, we are not able to reserve tickets – payment is required upon request. You can pay in the usual ways – cash, cheque, card transaction or bank transfer.
So put on your best Christmas jumpers, come and have fun with your friends and get into the Christmas spirit!
John Charles of Leigh-on-Sea Sailing Club has been kind enough to contact me and point out that their Brass Monkey race will take place on Sunday December 18th, 2 – 4pm. This is a correction to the 27th December, which may have been published in some of our sailing programmes.
TBYC have a proud history of attending this event and taking away their brassware. Indeed I believe it’s Darren Fitchew’s turn to polish the monkey and return it in time for this event. Sailing instructions and the entry form are available via the links below: –
