This week-end (26 & 27 April) is the first of 3 week-end mini-series in the 2014 TBYC Race Calendar. The format is the same as the week-end mini-series in 2013.
Each mini-series has 2 races back to back on the Saturday and Sunday for each fleet, with results based on one discard if all 4 races are sailed. The same 3 starts sequence and 5 fleets as for normal club series racing is maintained in accordance with the 2014 Sailing Instructions.
As last year, the races on Saturday and Sunday will also each count towards the Spring Saturday Series and Spring Sunday Series as appropriate so if you only sail one of the days at a week-end your sailing is still contributing towards a Saturday or Sunday series result.
The other 2 week-end mini-series in 2014 are on 19 & 20 July 2014 and 13 &14 September 2014.

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
