THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS ON 30 JUNE / 1 JULY

Thanks to all the volunteers who stepped up last weekend to allow sailing to go ahead.

 

These were: John Casson, Tony Padbury, Gary Burrows, Barry Duce and Alex? (hopefully the right Warrington!) – and of course thanks as ever to those with duties who were there.

 

We have a significant number of people dropping out of duties this year often at the last minute and with no good reason which just makes it harder for the rest of us.

 

So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – if you have a duty and can’t do it for any reason do the following as early as possible:

  • Mark as SWAP REQUIRED on Dutyman and actively look for others to swap with.
  • Approach others who are not looking to swap – often they will swap with you if you ask.
  • Or find a future Vacancy on Dutyman and swap with that

If all else fails please let the Duty Officer know asap and at least a week before so we can advertise for a replacement

If you need help with Dutyman (it’s easy when you try, honest ) just contact me at [email protected] I will assist.

When people have made a real effort and have a reason they cannot do their duty we can often help but that is difficult if things are left until the last minute.

Success for our TBYC Team Racing Squad

Published by under Cadets

Nine of our TBYC Cadets aged 14 and 15 years, plus a dynamic 12-year-old, represented our club in three Team Racing events over the last 3 weeks.  The Cadets have been preparing for these events for some time with practice starts, tactical manoeuvres and even a Team building trip; climbing at Harrison’s Rocks. The first of the three events was the British Schools Thames Valley Championships at Maidenhead Sailing Club. This the biggest Team Racing event in the country attracting twenty teams with youngsters aged between 13 to 18 years sailing Fireflys. Our team, whilst being very young, battled well, putting their tactics into practice and achieving =12th position. The following week was a match against Haileybury School at Broxbourne Sailing Club, where the teams sailed RS Feva’s in gusty conditions and won the overall competition 3:2. Last Saturday the team, a squad of nine Cadets, sailed against Eton College. The five 7-minute races which make up a match, comprising of 3 boats per team (6 sailors) is competitively sailed using the ‘World Sailing’ rules to tactically hold up the opposition while your team plot their way through to the finish. The five-race match was again taken by our TBYC team. I am, as I am sure you are, extremely pleased and proud of our Cadets, who have worked hard to achieve such success. Well done!

A big ‘Thank you’ must go to the parents who have supported these events, helping with the organisation and keeping the boys and girls feed and watered in style.  Also, a special mention to Luke and Adam who delivered the ‘Thank you’ speeches, holding our club in great esteem.
