There are always lots of jobs cropping up that need doing to keep the club house in order. I believe we can undertake some of these without needing to call in contractors. Instead of leaving all these jobs until a working party it would be nice to get them done as they arise. So if anyone out there from a trades background or DIY expert feels that they may be able to help in any way it would be great to hear from you.
I only have small jobs in mind, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Last weekend saw many of our Sprint 15 sailors racing at Marconi in windy and cold conditions.
Thorpe Bay made an impressive start to the newly introduced Traveller Team Trophy with a turnout of six competitors.
The highlight of the weekend was a long race around Osea and Northey Islands, with a strong if inconsistent northerly breeze, this proved to be one of the fastest round the island races with a fetch for much of the race.
Many of our team getting top 10 position. Chris Tillyer and Steve Healy being split by Jenny Ball our TBYC regular winter visitor, followed closely by Jim Bowie and Daren Fitchew.

I plan to post the course on YouTube soon.
In the meantime see video “Race plan for 10 04 2016”. The new course is more simple, just with 2 gates, one gate is wider and serves as start line as well.
