Changes to Deep Water Shipping Channel Buoyage (SeaReach 1-7)

Published by under Club Notices,Cruising

Currently the shipping lane has centre lane buoys called SEA REACH 1 to SEA REACH 7 which are Pillar type Bouys. These are being replaced by port and starboard buoys either side of the deep Channel. This work is taking place on several dates over August.

This will affect anybody cruising the Thames Estuary, however those West Shoebury and East Leigh channel marker used by us for racing currently look unaffected.

More details on the work is available at New Yantlet Channel Bouys
The following link will be of use if you are interested in the current locations:Tidal Thames Recreational Users Guide

Published by under Cadets,Club Notices

Our local Scout Association wish to thank TBYC for putting on a fantastic sailing event on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th July which enabled 19 Cubs and Scouts to gain their water activity and challenge badges. Four races were held on each evening with 12 Picos challenging for the top spot over a short inshore course in ideal sailing conditions. Peter Snow was on peak form on Monday winning 3 races and John Williams pulled away from the fleet taking 3 wins on Tuesday.
My thanks to our band of volunteers who made this event a great success:
Jacob Allard, Sophie Boyge, Harry Boygle, Amy Chapman, Teddy Elmore, Michael Hodges, Tommy Holmes, Trevor Hughes, Harry Hughes, Laura Lloyd, Robyn Murdoch, Olivier Petty-Mayor, Peter Snow, Johnny Snow, Alex Thomason, John Williams and Linda and Rupert Snow for manning the support boat.
