TBYC Hurricanes at Clacton

The Thorpe Bay flag was flying high in Clacton on Sea this weekend.

The dynamic duo of Julian Reichert and Jeremy Sandford took the win of the Clacton TT by just 1 point from Canvey regular Lloyd Turner.

Taking a well deserved 3rd place was Hurricane veteran Nick Elmore sailing with youngest son Charlie and putting up a great fight with a photo finish in race 3, so close that the race committee couldn’t decide who was in front!

Well done team TBYC.

Dear Commadore, Vice Commodore, Committee and members of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club,

It has been 6 months since I started as Catering Manager at the club which Jenny and I have been members of for 17 years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in the new venture which now allows all the staff to work together as one.

I would like to thank Donna and all her team for working hard with me to embrace the changes made to improve the service to the members and their friends and families.
Also thank you to Sara Speller for her hard work and support promoting Friday club nights.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Barbara Herve and Margaret Kennedy for their endless supply of fresh herbs from their gardens which are readily utilised and much appreciated.

It was an honour to cook for those members who attended the 70th anniversary celebrations, huge congratulations to Anthony and Lisa for their organisation over the whole weekend the club looked fantastic. Speical thanks to Mick Kilkelly for his assistance and support at the Christmas and 70th ball.

My final thanks goes to Janet for her daily help and support to enable the smooth running of both the club and kithcen.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the Summer months to enjoy the Balcony Menu that has now been launched. There is a busy Summer ahead with Cadet week, Moth Nationals, Kestrel Nationals, Hornet Europeans and Cadet Nationals as well as the regular Oppie Beach club.

Once again, many thanks to you all for your continued support.

Kind Regards
