Why not check to see who is on Duty and make sure it is not you (It’s a scrollable window)
There was some exciting achievements for several TBYC Sailors doing the Nore Race (from the provisional results), trophies being received Friday:

Line honours for Kyle on the foiling moth in 1hr 20, the total distance sailed an amazing 42km in the race with 72.4km covered on the day.
The fast cats doing 2 laps could easily have covered 85km in the race, quite amazing stamina needed for that in almost perfect conditions.
3 Lasers traveled to the lovely Fishers Green Sailing Club on Saturday 27th June for their annual Laser Open Meeting. Forcast was light winds, heavy showers, sun, heavy wind, thunder and lightning and yes we had it all !
Chris Tillyer was always at the front in the mix as usual and somehow always seemed to be on the right side of the shifts and came away with 3 bullets, one up from 2nd last year, well done Chris great sailing in very testing conditions;
Thorpe Bay overall results were;
Chris Tillyer 1st
Rick Paxman 5th
Jeremy Doran 11th
