A Thank You

Published by under Club Notices

Over the past couple of weeks we have been having problems with one of the displacement boats leaking fuel. When it was realised what was happening, three people, Mark Dell, Toby Speller and Peter Thompson set about removing and repairing the fuel tank and then refitting over a few evenings last week, all in time for the weekends 9’er Open Meeting. On behalf of all TBYC members,  “Thank you and well done guys”.

Cadets On Tour

Published by under Cadets

Jess Quinlan & Alex Warrington – Otters/TBYC GBR 8407
George Warrington & Johnny Van Ingen – TBYC/Stone GBR 9029
Molly Brown & Ben Warrington – Otters/TBYC GBR 3069

3rd Indicator – Parkstone YC

Great weekend’s sailing in 12kt breeze, albeit very shifty making the beats very complex and seeing some “outsiders” coming through the fleet. Jess and Alex finished 6th overall after a reasonably consistent event. Molly and Ben cam 3rd in the Silver fleet and were often in the top 10 at the windward mark. George and Johnny had a comendable 29th place in one race. Again, the chance and experiance of sailing in a huge fleet (75 entries) is a fantastic opportunity for our youngsters.


After this consistent weekend, Jess and Alex have qualified 5th out of the 7 boats selected to represent GBR at the coming World Championships to be held in Argentina at Christmas. This is a great achievement and we are all very proud of their success. This will now be Alex’s 3rd World Team selections since being asked to crew for Ollie Herve in Wales. Thanks Ollie!!


So now comes the difficult time of raising the funds to send them! If any club member has any ideas or whose company might be able to offer some form of sponsorship I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Kyle Wins Tornado Nationals 2009

Published by under Catamarans,Nationals,Racing

Over a busy weekend at Whitstable, Kyle won the Saturday Series with one first and two seconds. He then went on to score a third and double points in the Forts Race Tornado medal series race to secure overall victory. A supreme effort by Kyle and Oliver Herve in what was their first ever Tornado national event. None of ther other Tornado sailors had met this all conquering team from Thorpe Bay Yacht Club – but they wont forget them in a hurry either !


Congratulations to David White for winning the F18 series beating a profesional crew from Nacra UK to score a sensational series win with a large fleet of very competative sailors. 


Nick Elmore and Sam Spratt came second in the mixed fleet to complete a great event.


Thorpe Bay Yacht Club was mentioned more than any other at yesterday’s prize giving – certainly an impressive set of results.
