He’s Done it Again !

Kyle Stoneham decided not to defend his Inland Sprint 15 National title at Grafham last week end (he wanted to but you can only sail one boat at a time unfortunately!). Instead he opted to join up with Hugh Styles at the same venue & & compete in the F18 Inland Nationals sailing a Nacra Infusion. Some very hairy racing especially on Sunday created eventful situations for all competitors but guess who came through to win? Team Styles & Stoneham are the 2009 F18 Inland National Champs.

Not sure if you have been down the club lately and seen the fliers.

There are still a few tickets left for the Christmas Party.

The booking form is on the reverse of the attachment if you would like to book a table.

If tickets are sold out then you could always join in for the entertainment after 9pm and they cost £10pp. The Zoltans are fun local jump-jive band and well worth seeing if you haven’t before

TBYC Fast Spitfire at Minis bay

Published by under Catamarans

David & Kyle had never sailed a spitfire together before untill the Nationals at Minnis Bay S.C. on the 9/10/11th October just past. To come 2nd in a fleet of 22 boats including the top spitfire veterans is a special achievement & there is little doubt that had they been involved with the boat, kindly lent by that oldsea dog Pete Thompson, for a few months competitive practice we would have another pair of catamaran National Champions at Thorpe Bay. Well done guys.
Heres the link to the results

from that even older seadog, Glenn Stoneham & Struan Wallace

Hi All,

This weekend is the end of Season Trophy and with it comes the end of Season, which means all dinghies and catamarans and their ancilliaries (road trailers, windsurfers/kyaks/paddle boards or whatever else you hide under your boats) need to vacate the dinghy park this Sunday after racing.
The only exception to this is any Picos which are on and have paid for rack space over the winter by this wekeend (at the more than reasonable price of £30, cheques with pico number on the reverse accepted).
Boats which have entered the Winter series can return to the dinghy park once the cruisers and sandhoppers have moved in for the winter.

Cadets on Tour

Published by under Cadets

Jess&AlexJess Quinlan & Alex Warrington – Otters/TBYC GBR 8407
George Warrington & Greg Watson – TBYC GBR 9029

Fishers Green Open Meeting

A popular “pond” event which this year was run in very difficult conditions. With not only 32 kts of breeze and very shifty but also sudden lulls and gusts caused by the many trees made this entertaining to watch to say the least! However Jess and Alex managed to secure a very solid 2nd overall in a 39 strong fleet. Showing off their great spinnaker work and boat handling, blasting them through the fleet after what was a lottery of a beat in most cases.

George and Greg did very well and were 23rd despite not sailing in the last 2 races after a bad capsize, which is a great improvement for him. Especially considering that it was Greg’s very first Cadet event and only his 3rd time in the boat!…… Well done Greg!
