Friday First Aid

  • not sure where the club first aid kits are or what to expect to find in them?
  • don’t know what to do if you or a child has an accident on the beach, in the water or even at home?
  • then come down to Cadet Night on Friday evening at 7pm.

David Elkington is our Cadet Week First Aid officer and he is generously giving up his time to share his professional expertise with us. Dave and his volunteers will be running sessions for adults and children on basic first aid guidance and advice to keep us all safe on the beach this summer.  He will also go through the locations of the clubs first aid kits and what to expect to find in them.

Published by under Cadets

We have two sessions of Race Training for 11+ year old Cadets with basic to more advanced sailing skills this week.

The weather is perfect for Sunday’s session. Why not combine Father’s Day with a trip to the Yacht Club. What better place to be!

  • Friday, June 16th 19.30 On-Shore session in the sail training room.
  • Sunday, June 18th 15.30 briefing, On-the-water session at 16.00.  (Change into wetsuits before 15.30)

The training will include Sail trim, stopping and starting, maybe even going backwards and of course, ‘Starts’. We will finish with a race or two!

TBYC Cadet Team Racing Squad at the British School’s Championships

Published by under Cadets

Our TBYC Cadet Team Racing Squad emerged bruised and battered after a grueling British Schools Championships at Maidenhead Sailing Club on Saturday. The event, which attracts the largest number of schools in the BSDRA calendar, completed against each other to take the title.

Our boys, who were the youngest at the event by far, had to compete against teams many years older. However, with determination, our tough squad of Thorpe Bay sailors battled the high winds, made some excellent starts, didn’t hold back on the protests and gave their very best. As the gusts reached 31 mph and in Fireflies, capsizes where swiftly recovered and as a team, the opposition were in for a challenging time. The umpire’s decisions seemed to go against us at times, but with a stiff upper lip, they battled on to take second place in the ‘Plate’ after winning two races in a row.  Winchester College won overall.

Don’t be fooled by appearances, they are ruthless on the water.  Well done boys!
