TBYC Feva’s

Hi all just a quick update.

Following what can only be described as a champaine sailing weekend it was awsome for me to see our Feva class not only on the water but racing and competing well done all who raced!!!

Just a few quick things to think about with the worlds looming and continued training.

Could all let me know if you think I have missed anyone as far as emails are concered as I lost the hard drive on my PC and have re generated the Feva email list but do not want to miss anyone.

If any of you are interested in attending either the Nationals or Inland Nationals please let me know and even confirm please if you are not going.

Also please email me if you are interested in buying new sails before the worlds and I will try to get a deal with RS but need to know by Friday 6th of May

Finally I am trying to put together an order for new boats prior to cadet week  so all of you that are interested then please let me know as early as possible at the below email

Email [email protected]

Happy Sailing Steve

Rib Etiquette at TBYC

Published by under Club Notices,Members

With the rise in numbers of privately owned power craft within the club and the enthusiasm for members to use them for following and supporting sailing activities, the General Committee have been asked to highlight the applicable club byelaw & suggest the following guidelines. 

TBYC Club Byelaw 3.1L:-

“Motorised craft, such as Ski Boats, RIBS, Jet Skis and other PWCs owned by Club members, will only be permitted to use the Club Slipway, when in possession of the written permission of the General Committee and their use is solely for the support of a Club activity.” 

With granted permission General Committee usage guidelines:- 

A)   To launch / recover outside of Dinghies launching / recovering from racing. This includes a period of 45 minutes prior to the published race start time to allow sailing dinghies clear access to the slipway & beach.

B)   Club Ribs to be given priority for launching & recovery as they are required to support Club activities.

C)   All ribs to be moored in such a way that does not prevent or hold up the      launching of sailing dinghies.

D)   Speed limit inside moorings & beach area is limited by PLA byelaws to a maximum of 8 knots

E)   No towing of skiers, wakeboards or inflatables within the moorings area.

F)   When launching from the Club Slipway it is Club Policy that adequate Personal Buoyancy for all persons on board must be worn whilst afloat.

G)   In calm weather (under force 2) speed to be kept at a minimum if navigating in/around the racing fleet to avoid large wash.

H)  Owners are solely responsible for ensuring they have adequate insurance coverage & are responsible for operation of the craft including if they have lent the craft to a third party.

I)   Owners to be aware that road vehicle drivers that have passed a UK driving test since 01st January 1997 may not be entitled to tow a trailer & boat combination over 750Kg. Please check directly with the DVLA. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Back by popular demand after last year is the Easter Hog Roast on Sunday April 24th. Tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 for children and include hog roast and all the trimmings and DJ. Last year over 250 people attended the Easter hog roast so get your tickets quick and be sure not to miss out!

Then we have the Red, White and Blue back to the 80’s Royal Wedding Party on April 29th. It’s 30 years since some members saw Charles and Diana get married and now the next generation can enjoy their own royal wedding with Wills and Kate and celebrate in true TBYC style! Tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 for children and include full buffet and DJ from DNA Discos. This will be THE party of the year so get you tickets now and be sure not to miss it!

We have a special discount for these two events. If tickets are bought for both events at the same time the buyer will receive a £4 discount which means adult tickets will be £10 each and child tickets £8.
