Scott will be advertising his Sailor Post Racing meals prior to racing. Please complete the form at signing in to get your food. This will normally consist of mug of soup, pre ordered baguettes or something like chilli and rice. Experience from previous weekends, it is very good food.
Sandhopper 156 ‘Apollo’
Very fast and well sorted boat with lots of time and effort into looking after it, making it go fast and look good. Blue hull with no damage, Keel has been ground back and red-oxide to stop rusting, re-anti fouled, faired, polished and generally cleaned ready for the new season.
Z-spar mast and boom with self-launching pole. All ropes and harken blocks in great condition some replaced over winter, brand new spinlock main halyard jammer, double bilge pumps, hawk wind indicator, self-draining spinnaker bag with storage pockets, Depth sounder, anchor and oars.
2 sets of Hyde’s 1 as new only used for the nationals plus 1 day practice then stored inside since September. The other are a little older but can still win the club races and a big pink Lonton and Gray kite still got lots of life and is used for club sailing.
All measurement certs and is exactly 700kgs.
This is a great boat and will serve new owner well
If new to the class can arrange a few weekends sailing to get used to the boat and the set-up.

Thank you so much to everyone who came to our Cadet Worlds fundraiser last night! Also a big thank you to those who couldn’t be there but made a donation all the same! I think it’s safe to say we had a fantastic night and it was a huge success. The generosity of the friends and family of TBYC surpassed themselves! The band – The Undercovers – were awesome and I’m sure we’ll be seeing them back at TBYC sometime soon!
Many, many thanks

The first ever Sandhopper to be built.
True Blue has been stripped back and has some new fittings as well as a nearly new set of Hyde sails (used for only a quarter of a season).
Can be viewed in Colchester.
Contact Steve Tubby firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to arrange viewing.
My bright yellow sea kayak was stolen from the club racks at 11.30pm on Thursday 3rd April. The theft was recorded on the club’s CCTV and showed the theives to be two men with a large light coloured estate car. The kayak is very distinctive, being bright yellow and with `Venture Kayaks` emblazoned on the side decks. Moulded into the aft deck is `Easky 13`. A clear picture of the kayak can be found by Googling `Venture Kayaks Easky 13` or by looking at my notice on the club noticeboard. Items that went missing with the kayak include a very neat folding trolley, a red cockpit cover with `YAK` written across it in black, a pump and a small storage box.
If you spot a yellow kayak matching this description I would greatly appreciated a call on 01702 353989 or email email@example.com.
I am offering a cash reward for information leading to the recovery of my kayak.

I have been getting some of the historical documents that the club has in the form of scrap books, photographs, etc and have started making them available on the Internet to allow all members to view them. I have also been approached by a French man called François Chevalier who is currently writing a book on the subject and so my initial uploads has been around the International Catamaran Challenge Trophy when it was at TBYC from 1962-69. If you have anything that you feel that he maybe interested in then please let me know so I could make them available to him.
As for the club history I hope that it will slowly become available at the following link TBYC History on ISSUU, although all the links will be available on our history page.
