Dinghy Night – Talk Sailing and Drink Beer – This Thursday

Published by under Bar,Racing,Social

We don’t often get a chance for all sailors to get together and have a chat about sailing with like minded people, so this Thursday evening will be that first opportunity.

Meet some of the people you often just sail past, watch and chat about sailing, chat to others how you could improve yourself, talk about the plans for the year or just help us have more evenings like this.

See you in the club Main Bar, Thursday evening.

Cadet Race Training and Races 2017

Published by under Cadets,Feva's,Pico's,Racing

I have put together a full program of Training and Races for Cadets aged 11+ years, in any class of boat during this season.  In addition to the Pico Racing there will be Cadet Race training (including mini races) using our new training Rib, preceded by Shore based sessions during Cadet nights on some Fridays. I intend to go into some depth over the season, preparing our youngsters for Cadet trophy races, Interclub races and School’s Sailing. In addition, we will train a TBYC Team Racing squad (Year 9+) with our first match against Haileybury School in May. There will also be the opportunity to take the TBYC Stage 3 qualification in September. Nearer to the end of the season, we will enter the Matt Trophy and the Interclub Cadet Team Race at a neighbouring club, both of which, we have won in the past.

I have put all the dates and events together on one sheet to encourage our boys and girls to participate as fully as possible and ENJOY making progress with their sailing.

TBYC Cadet Race Training and Races 2017               I can E-Mail you a copy if you cannot open the file.

Whilst I will publish times and events, it would be helpful to know those who are interested. Please E-Mail me at [email protected]

Winter and Icicle Series – Our Thanks

Published by under Racing

Just as we start our main sailing seasons I wanted to take the opportunity on behalf of the Sprints and I am sure the Lasers and all other classes, to thank every volunteer that has helped during the cold and unforgiving Winter and Icicle series. Without all of you we would  have not been able to continue to deliver competitive sailing.

Winter and Icicles Privezegiving – This Sunday

Published by under Racing

Don’t forget the Winter and Icicle Prizegiving, which takes place after the last Icicle Series race this Sunday (probably around 14:00). Come and support everybody in your classes, right after the last Icicle on Sunday. Prizes for Saturday Winter, Sunday Winter and all of the Icicles.

Can Jim Bowie take the top spot in Sprints? Allen Burrell will I am sure win the Fast Monohulls but what boat will he be sailing. Will Chris Boshier get trimmed right to beat Ivan Holjar in the Lasers? Will a Hurricane sit top of the General Handicap and who is the Crew and Helm ?

For this and other nail-biting scenes, make sure you’re there o­n Sunday!
