Guard Boat Duty Swop

Published by under Duty Swap,Racing

I am at a conference on May 12th so unable to skipper SS3. Happy to take on a Saturday Race Officer duty not including June 26th – July 10th instead. Alternatively, if you are looking to swop because you are unsure about being RO, if you take my guard boat duty I would be happy to coach you as RO!

From Alan Butler

As the founding editor of the tbyc newsletter NEWSBUOY may I congratulate all concerned on the new colour magazine. The newsletter has come a very long way from its origins in 1961 when a four page foolscap paper produced on a roneo machine,with my wife typing the skins was mailed to 600/700 members.Members might be interested to learn how NEWSBUOY got its name. As editor I announced a readers competition, unfortunately as most editors of such publications will understand nobody answered or entered so the editor’s choice became the name which lasted for over 40 years.With best wishes for many years of success to the new magazine. Alan Butler.

Chris Hull

Published by under Club Notices

Yesterday a body was recovered from the sea and identified as Chris, very very sad in every way but at least we now have an opportunity to pay our last respects.
Chris entertained many of us with his great sense of humour both on and off the water with his last “on stage” appearance at the prize giving supper where the multihull class gave him ample ammunition with their years antics. Chris drew laughter from every quarter with his witty and very clever speech.
Many of us are still trying to understand this tragedy and now the sea he loved has relinquished its hold, Chris can be brought home for a fitting send off for a truly great member.
there will be a book of condolences on the bar which will be presented to the family in due course.

We Now Have Guinness

Published by under Bar

Martin and I are pleased to announce we have managed to get hold of a ‘Guinness Surger’ for those who love the Dublin taste.

Guinness has launched a new device that allows drinkers of the black stuff to create the magic of Guinness Draught.

The promise from the drinks company is that the device, called the Guinness Surger, sends a burst of ultrasonic waves through the special pint activating that instant rush of “Guinness Magic”.

Try this now for an introductory discounted period.
