Sad News

Published by under Club Notices

It’s with regret to announce the passing away of Reg White. Thursday morning he played a round of golf, Thursday afternoon/evening he raced his brightlingsea One Design, just as he was steeping ashore he had a heart attack. He started his catamaran career with the Little America’s Cup and the ‘Lady Helmsman’ C-Class catamaran, the first boat with a wing sail to win a major trophy. Reg went on to become an Olympic Gold medalist in the Tornado (1976 Montreal) with crew John Osborn and also won world championships in 1976 and 1979. His East coast company have built some other famous cats like the Hurricane59, Shark, Dart 16, Dart Hawk F18, Spitfire and their last rocket, the Shockwave F18. Condolences to all the White family

St. Pauls to Notra Dame-London to Paris Bikeathon July 2nd 2010

Published by under Members,Social

I said to my wife, “Just going out on the bike for a bit of exercise dear”

“Try not to be long, you know we’ve got to get up to Waitrose”

I thought I would celebrate the end of my seventh decade on planet Earth, incidentally six of them as a member of TBYC, with a bit of a project not akin to sailing this time.

On July 2nd David Johnson and I plan to cycle from St. Pauls Cathedral to Notra Dame in Paris together with a few friends who have agreed to join us.

Some years ago a chum had to deal with the daily trauma of life with a son with Leukaemia. Since then two further friends have had to deal with the same daily upheaval with the disease with the inevitable hospital treatment. For them, they at least had the financial resources to help cope with the burden. Others, in different circumstances, do not.

We therefore have decided to support Children with Leukaemia with this ride together with a 1/3rd going to a local children’s charity Little Havens.

We all are paying all our travel and accommodation expenses, so everything donated plus gift aid, if appropriate, will all go to these causes.

We wonder if any fellow TBYC members may be kind enough to give us a little support with sponsorship, of whatever size ?

I have set up a charity web site account on so either, if you feel so inclined please log in there or alternatively you can ring me on 01702 587894 with your much appreciated sponsorship.

Many thanks
