Dangerous Obstruction at the West end of TBYC Beach

Published by under Members,Notices,Racing

IMG_6373This object has now been found and removed, thanks for those involved.

Will anybody entering the water or sailing from our beach be aware that currently there is a large metal obstructions in the sand approximately 10 feet away from the West end Breakwater. This maybe visible during early tide but is covered during higher water.

Southend Council have been advised as people have tried to move by hand. Please therefore assume that it is still present until I can advise you otherwise.

New Cadet Racing – Sunday 12 April 2015 – Race start at 16.30

Published by under Cadets,Racing

New Cadet Racing

The new course is aimed at all Cadets who can sail and to wish participate in a race with a shorter course, more laps over a reduced time.

There will be prizes for the older cadet as well as the less experienced sailors. A coach in a dedicated Support Rib will support the races.

Races will be raced under the TBYC Sailing Instructions.


Your guideCadet course

  • There will be an optional briefing at 15.30 (1 hour before start.)
  • The race will be a windward leeward course starting at the committee boat. It will be the second start with the Fast and Slow Monohulls at 16.33. (Time plus 3 minutes).
  • First check the number of laps on the blackboard at the top of the slipway and / or check with Support Rib on the water. Your race does not use a shortened course.
  • Once on the water, go to the Committee boat and look for the last number on the BACK of the boat, which indicates D on the diagram / or check with Support Rib on the water.
  • On the starting signal, you will cross the line and beat to the CADET BUOY, which is a special buoy marked with a C. This will be your windward mark, leave to Port.
  • Run or reach down to the course. You must NOT go through the line on the downwind leg (as in the sailing instructions).
  • Beat up through the line and onto the Cadet buoy and continue until the displayed number of laps are completed.
  • As you cross the line the committee boat will record your time. They will not give you a signal. The Support Rib will blow a whistle unless is needed elsewhere.
  • On Saturday there are two Races. You can do both, but you will need to wait for the second race to be started. Check out the number of laps with the Support Rib.

Dinghy Park

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

Now that the Cruisers and Sandhoppers are back on their moorings, could all members with boats in the dinghy park ensure their beloved vessels are moved into their allocated spaces as soon as possible.

The amended allocated space plan is on the notice board in the main lobby. If your boat is not listed then contact John Laliberte for a space.

If you have a Kayak, Canoe, Windsurfer or Paddleboard and require storage space on the racks for the summer, please mark your vessel with your name and postcode and contact the Club Secretary to pay your storage fees.

If your launching trolley is untagged, please write your name and sail number on the back part of your cover so John can fix the tag to your trolley.
