Lost Safety Bag

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

I have lost my Safety Bag, which I use during RS Feva and Team Racing training. Last seen Friday 18th July.
It is a Black Gill 10 L Dry bag with ‘Nick Alston’ and Safety Bag’ written on it. It contains everything you need to help ensure the youngster’s safety.
Any information on its whereabouts would be most appreciated.
Thank you, Nick – [email protected] 07815113459

Pico Surgery

Published by under Monohulls

Tim Allard is holding a Pico surgery this Saturday, starting around 14.00hrs, in the dinghy park. It is for parents and cadets who haven’t sailed for a while, and is an ideal opportunity to make sure all equipment if sound and in good condition prior to Cadet Week and to ask any questions you may have.

Sprint 15 Nationals Round up

Published by under Catamarans,Members

Another event that as a club we have demonstrated that we welcome these events and that we support them well. We have had many excellent comments from sailors that were visiting and this would not have been possible without our members. This includes the Sprint 15 sailors that entered but also worked hard until they were on the water, all those that volunteered and went on a Rota (some supplying boats), those members and cadets that came down from the club house at short notice to help on the beach (Rupert Snow is memorable “Aim at me”), the staff we employ (over 900 pints of beer were poured) and finally everybody that were friendly to all the visitors over the weekend.

Even though everybody does this unpaid, please remember this has brought required funds into the club in entry fees, catering and refreshments behind the bar.

There was success for Thorpe Bay out of the 83 boats sailed with the us winning the Team Event. Finley Cullender was 1st Junior, Gerald and Nathan Sverdloff was 2nd Two up. Steve Healy was 6th overall, 1st over 50 and 5th Most Improved, Gary Sverdloff was 2nd Most Improved, Keith Persin 3rd Heavyweight. The following Thorpe Bay Sailors were all in the top quarter overall Steve Healy, Andrew Wood, Chris Tillyer, Jim Bowie, Gary Sverdloff, Peter Thompson and Andrew Hannah. Although well done to everybody else. Peter Thompson without doubt showed us all up, sailing in shorts and shirt, often standing (must be his skills from the paddle boards) and being there at the front of many races.

Thank you to everybody for your time.

Paul Morgan (and Steve Healy), Sprint 15 Captains.
