Tickets for New Year’s Day Brunch are selling fast.
This is a popular event with a limited number of tickets. We expect to sell out – buy now to avoid disappointment.
Tickets available from the office or the bar.
In keeping with the last few years we will be having a no-charge New Year’s Eve Party from 8.30pm onwards.
Why not have dinner with family & friends and then head down to join everyone at TBYC to see in the New Year. The champagne is on ice and there will be dancing to DJ from 8.30pm onwards.
No tickets – no charge – look forward to seeing you there.
Members of the General Committee, under the guidance of Mick Kilkelly & Martin Swindon, will be serving full English breakfast and other brunch options including scrambled eggs with Smoked Salmon (no pre-orders required).
Tickets £8 per person (Children £5.00) go on sale Tuesday from the bar or the Office.
We have two sittings for brunch – 11am or 12.30pm. You’ll need to select your sitting when you buy your tickets. You are welcome to arrive at any point during the session you have booked but you will need to vacate your table by 12:30pm for the first sitting or end of service at 2pm for the second sitting.
This is always very popular and places are limited, so please buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment (ticket sales close 30th December or when we’ve sold out).
The bar will be open serving Bucks Fizz, Bloody Mary and all your other favourites.
Its planned to float the new race buoys out after racing on Saturday. These will then be swapped over at low tide on Sunday morning with the faded orange buoys floated back in prior to sailing on Sunday. Low tide on Sunday is at 9:40am, so I plan to start at 9:00 which should give plenty of time to deal with the 6 buoys. To make life easier, it would be great to have someone assist.
It’s not the lowest of low tides, so I’d suggest a wetsuit or drysuit will be required.
Just a reminder that Leigh-on-Sea Sailing Club are running their Brass Monkey race this Sunday starting at 2:00pm. Due to the late notification and in the interests of fairness, the Sailing Committee have decided that no concessions (e.g. avg points) will be available to entrants.
Links to the sailing instructions and entry form are available on an earlier posting.
Thorpe Bays YC, Kyle Stoneham is currently enjoying the sun in Bermuda, whilst he races in the International Moth Regatta that is taking place.
Even though racing was cancelled for a day due to strong winds, some of the competitors went sailing in Hamilton Harbour, so they decided to run some speed trials, with Kyle completing the one minute course in top slot. Well done Kyle.
