Unwanted sailboards, kayaks and canoes

Published by under Club Notices

You may have noticed the unsightly raft of old sailboards, kayaks and canoes cluttering up the racks to the east of the steps as you enter the dinghy park.  These items are sitting there, rent free, and this storage space is required for ongoing club projects, the storage of boats and other gear essential for the continued sailing and racing at the club.

These boards have been moved to the back of the club, where you have one month to either collect them and take them home, or put them under your boat in its allocated space in the dinghy park.

After this time has elapse (24th June 2017) and boards left will be disposed of accordingly.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Chris Boshier
Rear Commodore (Racing)

Southend Triathlon – This Sunday

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

This Sunday, Southend has it’s Triathlon and we all need to be aware that there will be a lot of activity around the club, road, beach and in the water. Our Regatta starts at 12:45 so hopefully most people will be on the water.

The first Triathlon swimmers start at 12:00 swimming from the Shoebury Common slipway and then coming up the beach before Thorpe Bay YC slipway. They cycle through Barling and Wakering, then returning for a run along the Seafront in front of the club. I estimate the first runners will be around 12:45, the cutoff for the race is 16:00. Entrants are parking in the council green car park next to ours.
