Dinghy Park – For Sale!

Published by under Club Notices

The club has an ever increasing number of Picos and Lasers with a finite amount of space in which to keep them.

We would like to encourage members to buy and sell boats within the club so that current numbers can be maintained and the usage of boats increases.

We have a number of new members looking for such boats and would like anybody looking to sell in 2019 to let me know so that we can match seller to buyer.

Existing boats should be easily identified by either having the numbers written on the cover or a clearly readable tag on the trolley.

Our ultimate aim would be for all boats to be used regularly throughout the year but realise that it does not always work out that way. Please don’t just leave the boat unused for 2019.

We have received notice that Pico 12411 has been put up for sale – the cost is £ 990 ono. Please contact me or Janet for further details – details and pictures can be found on the club’s notice board.

Thank you all in anticipation of your cooperation in this matter.

2019 TBYC duty calendar – Last couple of days to choose your duties!

If you want to choose your duties online you have until end of Sunday 10th Feb to do so. After that I’ll be allocating duties to fill in the gaps for those who have not already done it.

Thanks to all those who have used the online option so far and those who have send me dates directly. Any feedback on this years approach is always welcome.

Please see my earlier post on 30 Jan for more details.

2019 TBYC duty calendar – now’s the time to choose your duties!

With the start of the 2019 season only 2 months away and the sailing programme now published I’ll be putting names against duties during February to complete the calendar in DutyMan.

For those that did not take the opportunity to pick your duties at the Club & Sailing AGMs you now have an opportunity over the next 2 weeks to pick duties online.

You should receive an email from [email protected] today with a link and instructions on how to do this.

Prefer not to do it online? – then simply email me at [email protected] with dates you can’t do and I’ll allocate duties for you.

If you have not received your email (check your spam folder?) or have not done duties before and would like to get involved (no experience necessary) please contact me at [email protected]
