Windsurfer wanted

Published by under For Sale

Please see below from Frazer

Hi TBYC folks
As a former Yachts & Yachting employee I am looking to get back into windsurfing.
I’m based in Leigh and am looking to pay cash for a cheap and knackered 250cm-280cm shortboard that the club (or a club member may own). I’d rather buy off someone local so if you have one to sell please contact me and I’d social distance view and pay cash.



[email protected] or phone 07800 771536.
PS Happy if it’s been sitting in somebody’s garden for 15 years… or needs a bit of work.

Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

As a committee we took the decision back in March to continue to plan for a Cadet week, but not to put out the application forms due to the uncertainty of the duration of lockdown. The General Committee have been meeting on a weekly basis, closely monitoring the guidance from the Government and subsequent changes to the advice given by the RYA and PLA.


Having reviewed the planned changes to restrictions issued last week and even with the gradual lifting of lockdown, the obstacles were too big for us to provide a safe event on and off the water. We have therefore taken the decision to cancel this year’s Cadet Week. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, we are disappointed but feel it is the right decision.


As the summer progresses I look forward to seeing more people re integrating with the club and getting back on the water in whatever form that may be. When as a club we are able to organise activities safely, we will look at the remaining planned Cadet programme for the season and issue further guidance.

Notice to Members from the Commodore

Published by under Club Notices

Firstly, as always, please may I thank all of our wonderful members for your co-operation, understanding, patience and continued support. Your Committee are very appreciative.

We are now following revised guidance from HM Government, working hard at getting our Club House back open at the earliest opportunity.

It is our intention to re-open the Club House on Saturday 4th July. However, our primary concern as always is to provide as safe an environment as possible under Covid 19 restrictions. This will be a low key return with many safety measures (more guidance to follow).

In short, such measures will be:

  1. Advise to visit only if well and not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms or anxious in any way
  2. Practical steps such as one-way systems
  3. Screens and social distancing markings
  4. Seating only with limited space. Please do not be disappointed if the Club is full, it is for everyone’s safety
  5. Bar, food and toilets only, no changing facilities
  6. Cleaning stations and sanitizer at all tables
  7. Increased cleaning regime Signing in book to be completed by all members to comply with NHS track and trace.

The above is just some of the key measures, full details will follow shortly, and all will be displayed on Club TVs and around the Club. Also, as always, information will be circulated to all via email, Club website, Club Facebook and letters to those who do not have access to electronic communications.

I would again rely upon your co-operation with these restrictive measures and please understand the controls have been very carefully considered for the safety of members and staff.

Yours faithfully

Steve Hopper
