TBYC 2011 Regatta – A Massive Thank You

A massive thank-you to the TBYC 2011 Regatta Race Officers Alan & Sally Willis and Howard Hawkes who coped with calm professionalism with everything the weather could possibly throw at them this weekend.

Thanks to all the members that supported in the many functions such as Beachmaster, Pico Race Officers, safety boat crews, race recorders, registration, BBQ ticket promotors and the team that spent both days getting very wet assisting competitors off the water in the challenging conditions and helped with the rib recovery tasks.

Thank you to the members that loaned Ribs as additional safety cover – this permitted a much greater level of coverage allowing the racing to take place.

Plus the results team who turned around the results for our five races  in super quick time – well done.

What a great team & thanks again,

Toby Speller -Rear Commodore Racing

Congratulations to Allen Burrell who has just won a silver medal at the Finn world championships.
2nd overall in a fleet of nearly 300 boats is an amazing feat, made all the better when you add in the fact that some of the sailors he beat are ex Olympians.
Well done Al we are all so proud of you.

Regards Spratty and Tracey and all of TBYC
