Winter Sunday Race 5 Cancelled

Published by under Racing

Race Notice

Winter Sunday Race 5 programmed to start at 15:00 hours on Sunday 18 December 2011 is cancelled.

Reason: dusk is less than an hour after the programmed start time and it is not feasible to move the start time forward and not appropriate to run what would otherwise have to be a very short race.

This notice is posted in accordance with Section 3 of the Sailing Instructions.

Graham Dare
Rear Commodore (Racing)

RYA Powerboat Training

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

On a very cold Saturday last, we completed our second RYA Powerboat Level 2 training course this autumn, with five more Club members successfully gaining their certificates.  They are Izzy Duce, Janet Willsmer, Adrian Bunting, Allen Burrell and Brant Chapman.  Well done!


Since we registered as an RYA Training Establishment in 2009, we have trained 33 people up to Level 2.  Before that, with the support of SMAC we helped a further 20 members gain this valuable qualification.


Our team, Tony Clarke, Toby Speller and Ken Clarke, get a huge buzz from teaching on this course and as a result, we know that we are adding to the pool of skilled powerboat drivers in the Club, providing safety cover for our racing.  Without that cover, we cannot race.


If you would like to join this group and get your Level 2 qualification, contact any one of us through the office or email [email protected] and we will endeavour to sign you up for one of our 2012 sessions.  The charge of £25 covers the cost of training materials and contributes to the cost of fuel for the practical part of the course.

Thanks Kylie and the TBYC social team, for putting on a fab Christmas party at the weekend. Food / band and the dodgy company was great.
