Please note entries and payment must be in by 17th October 2010 so we can allocate dinghy park spaces.

DON’T FORGET this is an open even, so if  you want to get some Winter training in with a buddy from another club get them to enter too.

National 12 crew wanted

Published by under Racing

My regular crew Sue has put her back out and sadly will not be able to sail for some time so I am looking for some one to pull some strings in the front end of my N12, being small and agile is a big bonus. A National 12 may not be the fastest boat on the water but it is quite a challenging technical dinghy to sail. So if you are interested please give me a ring on

Cadet Representative

Published by under Bilge,Cadets,Club Notices

Due to ever increasing commitments – and a distinct lack of spare time – I have decided to step down as Cadet Representative at the AGM in November. Would anybody interested in taking on this most worthwhile job please contact me (07790 089860). I will be happy to assist in any way I can. The Firework and Christmas Parties will both already be arranged so handover should be easy.

Windy Weekend at TBYC for 29er 49er B14 & Musto Skiffs

Published by under Racing

if you had a choice the comfort of the Clubhouse could have been favourite this past weekend.
For the travelling fleets of 29er 49er B14 & Musto Skiffs their journeys were rewarded with some excellent seat of your pants sailing and the odd swim.

We are very lucky to have the as always true professional of Alan Willis within our club who as Race Officer did an excellent job in very testing offshore windy, cold, wet conditions controlling the race course and the motley crew that assisted him including the one man comedy act of Nigel Payn on hooter, Ann Mckinlay on gossip, Alix Dell, Sally Willis and Lisa Farrell on their last and future shopping trips. How Alan survived i am not sure as there was also a lack of the traditional smoked salmon and champagne…
With 52 boats there were a fair few fallers at the gybe keeping all the guard boats very busy.
Many thanks to the club members who supported with their own ribs on this occasion and many others to give the necessary cover.

club ribs,
team Clarke,
team Boygle,

back in the clubhouse Tony Padbury on results, in the Kitchen Jo slaved away from the early hours on breakfasts through to the evening Hog Roast and all this on her Birthday!

Club members sailing in the event put on an impressive display, in the 49ers David Hopper taking 1st with Colin and Amanda Goodman 2nd both outstanding with Colin showing why he is in my opinion the best helmsman in our club.

Dan Henderson in his Musto Skiff finished a very credible 3rd ahead of the current national champion, Dan who is still underweight against the competition in the windy stuff even overcame a bad hair day following an impressive off in front of applauding committee boat and guard boat spectators.

thanks again to all who gave up their weekends to support this event,

Peter

Published by under Bilge,Racing

Many thanks to Howard Hawkes for abandoning his lead over the sprint fleet in order to rescue a cadet who had been whacked on the head by his boom and quite obviously could not get back on his boat this Sunday, top marks Howard.
