Rib Launching

Tony Clarke will continue to ensure our ribs are fuelled and ready for action, although will not be able to undertake his support boat duties for most of the rest 2015.
This will mean that we need volunteers to undertake the vacant RIB helming and RIB launching/recovery duties over this period.
RIB launching/recovery will require volunteers with a vehicle with towing point to deliver and retrieve the two RIBs between the clubhouse and the slipway on each occasion.

If you are helming or crewing a rib, you will need to ensure it is washed down, rinsed through and the cover and clamp on.
Please can those members with suitable vehicles volunteer for one or more occasions. You can volunteer through Dutyman ( a new duty of RIB launch/recovery has been added) or contact Graham Dare ( [email protected], 07946 413923)
Clearly, if we cannot get enough volunteers for RIB launching/recovery we will need to review our sailing programme.
Thank you in anticipation of your help.
Rear Commodore ( Racing)

TBYC Junior Bart’s Bash

Published by under Cadets,Feva's,Pico's,Racing

As part of the ‘New Cadet Racing’ events this year, we have decided to have a shorter ‘TBYC Junior Bart’s Bash’ to allow our younger sailors a chance to race on Sunday.

This event is open to all Cadets.
We welcome those who have been racing in the Pico Series and of course, all Cadets that may feel more confident with picothe extra support, and not forgetting our more experienced sailors.
The course with be shorter than the adults’ course, sailing for approximately 50 minutes.
Prizes according to numbers.

There will be a briefing at 1400, when the course will be explained. Instructions are below, but don’t worryRS Feva all will be made clear before the race.
Starts at 1500 (Mass Start).
There will be a briefing at 14.00 (1 hour before start) with Nick Elmore and Nick Alston.
The race will use the Cadet buoy as the windward mark with the rest of the course being decided on the day.
The start will be at the committee boat. It will be a Mass Start with the rest of the fleets.
The number of laps will be on the blackboard at the top of the slipway and / or check with Support Rib on the water. Your race can be shortened by the Support Rib.
On the starting signal, you will cross the line and beat to the CADET BUOY, which is a special buoy marked with a C. This will be your windward mark.
Check whether a Red or Green flag is displayed on the Committee boat; Red means leave marks to port, Green means leave marks to sterratarboard.
As you cross the finish line the committee boat will record your time. They will not give you a signal. The Support Rib will blow a whistle unless is needed elsewhere.
Let have a massive turn out on Sunday as this is the last race in this year’s New Cadet Racing programme.
