Crew wanted – Merlin Rocket

Published by under Bilge

Crew required for a very nice wooden Merlin Rocket  No experience necessary.  We can work things out as we go along.  Ideal weight 60-90 kg.  The boat has a symmetrical spinnaker on twin poles which launch very easily.  There is plenty for the crew to do and the Merlin is a great sea boat.

I live in Hertfordshire but want to sail at TBYC as often as possible right through the summer and autumn.  Very keen to do the mid week evening races as well.  Let me know if you are interested.  Call Michael 07867 802062

Shoeburyness Flood Defences

Published by under Club Notices

This is a note to remind members of the meeting this evening Monday 22nd April regarding the sea defences project. At the meeting the council will be presenting a number of schemes and a proposal from the floor will also be discussed.

It is important members attend the meeting to fully understand the implications of the various schemes upon the Yacht Club and the wider community.

The meeting is to be held in the Wendy Owen Hall – which is accessed through Caulfield Road (not the Sports hall as previously thought)At the Shoebury High School.

The meeting will start at 7.30 and Parking is reported to be a little tight so an early arrival is suggested.

Back to normal

Published by under Bilge

Morning everyone,

If you look out across the estuary you will see that we are pretty much back to normal.  Last weekend under the careful eye of Toby Speller the Guard boats were lifted in and back in action patrolling the race course.  Thanks also go to Gordon Saunders who serviced to engines for us through rain, snow and freezing conditions.

Yesterday Paul Morgan, Mike and Will Thomason spent the afternoon in SS3 laying the 15 race marks.  All marks have been fitted with new chain and shackles which should see them showing us the way round for another couple of years.  If you want to know your way round, new stick on course cards are available from the club bar, or you could follow Rupert who is putting his on his transom for Barry to follow.

Those of you lucky enough to have been gazing at the end of the pier around 5 o’clock yesterday evening would have seen the return of SS4 from Dauntless Boat Yard.  She too has had an engine service, new lifting Ram fitted to the engine leg, halyards and an electric windlass fitted to help raise and lower the anchor, hopefully enabling her to be moved more throughout the racing season.  Although the conditions have not been kind to us this winter, a great team of helpers all put in the hours to deliver, maintain and prepare the committee boat to run our racing for another year.  Thanks go to Toby Speller, Tony Clarke, Peter and Ivor Thompson, Barry and Mick Duce and Chris Maloney.

If you would like the current Lat and Long of the Racing Marks (as they was orginally dropped as they may move slightly), please use the Google Earth file from links below:

File that can imported to GPS’s (you will have to right click on Link and do save as)

New Social Secretary…. Could you be the next TBYC Social Secretary?

Due to work and family commitments, I have decided to step down as Social Secretary with immediate effect.

Following on from the success of events over the past 18 months, we have a great schedule planned for the remainder of 2013, and I would like to hand over to my successor as soon as possible.

If you enjoy attending events at the club, have a few hours to spare each week and have good organisational skills, this is the job for you!

If you’re interested in this position, please contact Nick Elmore on 07702 299555 or email [email protected] as soon as possible.

Thanks to everyone for your support.
