Daren Fitchew – Double Winner – Frozen Sheet & LOS Brass Monkey

Published by under Racing



A double achievement for Daren Fitchew who followed up his Brass Monkey win, by  today also winning the TBYC Frozen Sheets, whilst sailing his Sprint 15.

Again another windy day, as Daren suggested had been in his advantage, it’s what he had been training for.

Chris Boshier who also raced both races, had an unfortunate capsize during a gybe which left Daren with a 18 second corrected lead. We should not forget that Chris also sailed the double in his Contender last year.

Gary Sverdloff sailing his Sprint 15 took 3rd place.

Prize Giving took place after the race with Commodore, Beverly Warrington presenting the coveted prize.

All other entrants were very happy that it was not the normal low winter temperatures but those more like Autumn, although the Rum Punch served by the Commodore and helpers was enjoyed by all.

TBYC Retain the Brass Monkey Trophy

Published by under Racing

Saturday was a now common 5-6 (gusts even more) , so perfect weather for Daren Fitchew (and other members) to go off to Leigh for the day, sailing a Sprint 15. Having came second to Chris Boshier last year, he was keen to get the top spot.

Well done to Daren for winning this years Leigh on Sea Brass Monkey Trophy. We understand he had a very good distance on all boats. Well done to the other sailors from TBYC that also sailed around in the exciting conditions.

This does mean that we have now held the trophy for 3 years following two years of wins by Chris Boshier.

Club Racing this Saturday – Two races planned

Published by under Racing

The Sailing Committee met today and discussed the poor weather we have had during the Saturday and Sunday Winter Series and that the without three races, according to the Sailing Instructions each Series will not be valid.

It is therefore planned, at the discretion of the Race Officer, to include an extra race on Saturday to complete the series. The weather has been reasonably mild, except for the wind and therefore we feel that this should be acceptable to all.

We still plan to run a single race on Sunday.
