Published by under Racing

Congratulations to Graham Sexton for his overall third place crew in the recent Endeavour ‘Champion of Champions’ trophy races.

The RCYC Endeavour is a unique event in the UK dinghy sailing world, recognised by the RYA as the pinnacle of that year’s dinghy sailing achievements which will hail a “Champion of Champions”. Held on the tidal rivers Crouch and Roach in October each year  it’s an invitation only event, with the guest-list hand-picked from National Champions of selected fleets.

Graham represented the Laser 2000 fleet following his 2011 nationals win. The Topper Xenon was this year’s  selected boat sailed by all 25 helms/crews. The event was held on 6& 7 October 2012.

Commodore’s Gentlemans Dinner Friday 9th November

Published by under Club Notices,Social

In the spirit of trying to inject some tradition to the club we have put together an evening of enjoyment for the gentlemen of the club in the following order:
We arrive at 7.00 for a Real Ale and a Seafood reception.
At 8.00 we will sit down for dinner.
During and after the dinner we will hear a few short speeches from members about the past, present and future of our club.
We will then have a tasteful comedian to end the structure of the evening – we then have a chance to socialise amongst fellow members and guests.

I have invited a number of Commodores from neighbouring clubs, officials from the RYA and members of the Southend Branch for the RNLI.

I hope you are able to join me and fellow flag officers and members of the committees of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club to make the evening a special event and one which I hope we can hold annually from now on.

Tickets are now available from the Bar or Office at the club or by contacting me on 0770 2299555.

The dress code is Black Tie And the cost of the ticket is £ 25.

Guests are most welcome.

Regards and Best Wishes
Nick Elmore
