Feva Worlds 2011

Published by under Bilge

Congratulations to all the children and adults who made the TBYC visit to the Feva Worlds, such a resounding success. 7 boats competed from the club, helping make a fleet of 160 boats from countries all over Europe and the World. The event was superbly managed in an outstanding sailing area and we were afforded every type of wind conditions from the sublime to the outrageous!
Thanks to the valient efforts of Steve and David Hopper, Martin and Nick Binnindijk, Barry Duce, as well as the more sane approach of Martin and Lyndsey Swindon, we all enjoyed a close view of proceedings on their ribs. Steve’s vision for a new cadet fleet has been realised in style and huge thanks goes to him for setting on track such a successful future for TBYC cadet sailing. I expect we will have even more boats being sent from TBYC for the Feva Worlds 2012 at HISC!

Sprinters at Seasalter – 16/17th July

Posted on behalf of Steve Healy
Well done to the magnificent seven who braved the howling winds at Seasalter last week, we had 18 – 38 mph winds on the first day, offshore with flat water, cat course, absolutely adrenalin fuelled thumping fun.

Especially well done to Martin Ellis for his 3rd place overall, to Howard Hawkes for his 3rd place on race 1 and also to Gary Burrows and Keith Persin for 6th and 7th on race 3 ( top end of F7).

All in all a great show by the Thorpe Bay Sprinters – well done to all!
