Aldenham Laser Open Meeting

Published by under Laser's

3 Club Lasers flew the flag for TBYC again and  traveled to the lovely Aldenham Sailing Club on Sunday 10th June, We were greeted with sun, light wind and hand delivered coffee to the boats whilst rigging ( a thing i think we should take on one day !!) light and very shifty conditions made for some huge place changes up the beats which somehow we always managed to be on the wrong side of, as in race 2 i was leading lap 2 with Adam Smith  hard on my heels in 2nd but we still only managed to finish 4th and 9th respectively. This also was Glenn`s first lake event in his Laser and proved to be a bit of an eye opener for him, but he was always smiling after each race which is the main thing. After a lovely lunch followed by strawberries and cream we attempted to improve on the mornings results, alas that wasnt to be and the shifts got the better of us “salties” again, and the  overall end results were;
Rick Paxman 7th
Adam Smith 16th
Glenn Ratcliffe 20th
We have now attended three of the Thames Area Circuit so far this year and they are always great little clubs and great fun. We have all been asked numerous times at each Club as to when we are to be hosting an Open Meeting and thankfully i believe at long last it has been approved for next season. Plenty of time to get some practice in.

Family night (Friday 20th) Sailing kit exchange

Summer has arrived just in time for our first Oppie Beach club. We start this Saturday at 14:00 (changed by the back of the clubhouse). Oppie Beach Club is open to all cadets and adults new to sailing who wish to get on the water for some informal tuition, practice skills form last year or just get in a boat with someone else for the first time. Parents are expected to help hold boats in the water if their child is participating.

On Friday at 7pm we will be going down to the dinghy park to look at how to rig different boats. This is useful for cadets and adults who don’t know or can’t quite remember how to rig and Oppie, Pico or Laser.

In the bar before and after the rigging session I am going to trial a Sailing kit exchange where you can bring any unwanted or too small kit and donate it to the cadets, if the kit is what you need for this year then you may take it and will be expected to provide a small paper donation do the Cadet fund. Thank you.

Our Cadets represent TBYC at the Matt Trophy and WIN!

Published by under Cadets,Laser's,Pico's

We are proud to announce that Peter S. won the Matt Trophy at the Thames Estuary Yacht Club in his Laser, last Saturday. Moreover, our younger Cadets; Adam, Sam, Luke, Tom, Dominic and Daniel, aged between 10 and 14 years, also performed very well in a large fleet of dinghies from local clubs. 

matt-trophymatt-trophy-2It was so good that our club was represented at this event, organised by The Matthew Dear Foundation, which was set up to help educate and inform others about the dangers of A.P.E.D’s (Appearance & Performance Enhancing Drugs). More information can be found here: http://www.matthewdearfoundation.co.uk/

Our thanks go to Andras for organising the Picos, Lewis and his crew for the Safety boat cover and parents for supporting this event. Also a big thank you to the organisers at TEYC.

Well done Cadets!
