Laser Open Meeting

Published by under Monohulls

3 Lasers traveled to Fishers Green Sailing Club on Saturday 27th June and were greeted with bacon butties, hot sun and a gentle breeze. There were 20 boats entered 7 of which were visitors. They have a large lake with numerous islands to navigate around which made for challenging moves down the runs to see which side of them to go. Local knowledge prevailed here big time as the wind shifts were massive, and getting on the wrong side of one cost you many places as i found out to my cost a few times ! This really is a lovely small friendly club who were very appreciative of us attending, i really would recommend it as one to do again next year. Well done to Chris Tillyer who scored a 2,3,2,3 to secure 2nd overall from the club hotshot.
I had a 10,8,7,6 for 8th overall, and Jeremy Doran had a 13,12,13,15 for 12th overall, and is improving at every event he attends.

New Cadet Racing – Sunday 28th June 2015 – Start 09.00

Published by under Cadets,Monohulls

New Cadet Racing

This Sunday is our next session in the ‘New Cadet Race’ Series.

Let’s have a big turn-out!!!!

  • 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 guide

Cadet courseCadet course

  • There will be an optional briefing at 08.00 (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 09.03. (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.
  • Check whether a Red or Green flag is displayed on the Committee boat; Red leave marks to port, Green leave marks to starboard.
  • 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.

Summer Ball Thanks

Published by under Bar,Catering,Social

I would just like to formally thank Steve, Karen and their team for a seamless and professional service last night and for the incredible efforts they put into the preparation in the weeks before – Karen was an absolute star.  I have had many people comment to me today on how delicious the food was, how efficient and friendly service was and what a delight it was to enjoy such a fantastic meal.  We are very lucky to have great caterers who work extremely hard to deliver the perfect event for us – the best one we’ve had in years!


Grateful thanks to Lorraine and her bar team for their equally seamless and professional service and hard work.  No-one waited long for drinks, empties were cleared efficiently and the atmosphere was a fun and friendly one.


I also think everyone will agree how brilliant everyone looked in their standard smart black uniforms with gold ties and bow ties.  It tied everything together and made for a very professional feel to the evening.
