There was a record turn out for recent years of 83 Sprint 15′s at the Sprint National Champioinships on 18th to 20th August 2012 at Brightlingsea – bolstered by 17 Sprints from Thorpe Bay.
Well done Team Thorpe Bay for flying the Club Flag ( Rob Bailey, Gary Burrows, Nick Cotgrove, Graham Dare, Clive Dilliway, Martyn Ellis, Darren Fitchew, Andrew Hannah, Howard Hawkes, Steve Healey, Alan Leonard, Keith Persin, Theresa Ryall, Stefan Smith, Conrad Stevenson, Gary Sverdloff, Gerald Sverdloff)
The best 3 TBYC boats were:
- Howard Hawkes – 14th ( best race 4th)
- Martyn Ellis – 21st ( best race 4th)
- Gary Sverdloff – 25th ( best race 3rd)
There were a number of general recalls and a few black flags but a good time was had by all both on and off the water.
