TBYC are proud to present:-
Playing live Saturday 24th October at 8.30pm
After a successful tour of Denmark in the summer & appearances at festivals up and down the UK, Thorpe Bay Yacht Club are delighted to welcome Wildwood Jack – Adam Piggott & Jayne Freeman – to Southend.
Melodic songs with guitar and ukulele fingerstyle sophistication drawing influences from folk, country and world music.
Wildwood Jack is the acoustic duo Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman. Touring on regular basis – as well as being featured on BBC local radio – they play all over the south east with frequent gigs in Aldeburgh.
Their sound is a harmonious blend of fingerstyle guitar and ukulele and has been described as a mix of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Nanci Griffith and Ry Cooder. Memorable live shows can feature anything from traditional songs and tunes to a reworked punk classic or even Pink Floyds ‘Shine on You Crazy Diamond’.
Adam says “Everything we do is about maximising the sound and capabilities of the acoustic guitar and ukulele together when we play live. Our style has evolved from playing and experimenting over the years with a lot of influence from folk, country, blues and jazz”.
This is a TBYC-sponsored event – so come along with friends & enjoy what promises to be a very memorable evening of live music!
Don’t forget we have a work party planned for Sunday 4th at 10am, please bring along your gardening tools as we are clearing the Dinghy Park . Thank you for your support.
In light of the fact there is a rather important game for England this evening (!), the Rugby will be showing in the Commodore’s Bar.
We have therefore arranged for the Magic Show with Oliver Tabor to commence around 9.15-9.30pm to allow for this so that everyone can join in with the free members’ evening.
In addition, you will be able to order Tapas on a ‘walk-in’ basis from the hatch if you wish to have some food this evening but haven’t pre-booked. Those who have pre-booked will be given priority for the dishes and the time they wish to have food. Those who order on the evening will be served as soon as possible strictly on a first-come-first-served basis.
I look forward to seeing you there!
Please book on 07947 741947 or email the Galley Kitchen

A dynamic group of youngsters represented Thorpe Bay Yacht Club in this year’s Interclub Team Race, hosted by Thames Estuary Yacht Club. Last Sunday the TBYC team won the Cadet class for the second year running. Peter Snow, Millie and Vicky Little, Greg Watson and Jacob Allard left the beach in windy conditions and were escorted around the pier to practise their starts and get used to the pretty difficult conditions. The ‘Little’ girls made an excellent start leading their class, whilst Peter Snow was steadily moving up the fleet eventually gaining first place by the end of the race. All the team performed well and are a credit to our club.
