Published by under Cadets,Monohulls

I am glad to say that the Picos have had a good 2 days of sailing, completing 4 races. Unfortunately I have had nobody come forward as race officer for Monday and therefore it has been abandoned.

TBYC’s NIC BARNES wins 2015 HORNET National Championship

Published by under Nationals,Racing

Hosted by BrixhamYC sailing in Torbay, with a 10 race championship over 4 days, saw a dry and sunny light wind and less event, in which Nic and his helm Rob Larke posted no less than 4 bullets, supported by 2 seconds.  They took the title in an extremely competitive fleet where the top 10 boats included 6 previous Hornet national champions.  Gary & Tracey also put in a valiant effort with some close racing running all through the fleet, but finished ‘also rans’, enjoying the company much more than the mainly non trapezing conditions.  What a timely advert for the Hornet open meeting to be held at TBYC on 26/27 September 2015, for which a Hornet Association owned boat is currently available to be used, by prior arrangement, by any wanna have a go Horneteers.  Congratulations Nic, and yet another TBYC National Champion to add to the TBYC honours board!

Clipper Race 2015-16 Start @ Southend Pier

Published by under Club Notices

At the last start in 2013 there was not much advertising and it also started on a work day, this year however it is different, so thought we should update you here.

The race allows people to race around the world against other 70 foot racing yachts all of the same design and you could just go to St Katherines Docks this week and sign up for the next. The whole race costs around £40,000 but for less money you can complete single legs and the training sessions.

This year, the boats come down to Southend this Sunday leaving St Katherines around lunchtime and mooring opposite us overnight. On Bank Holiday Monday the race starts from the end of the pier at 12:30.

If your not racing why not walk or even sail to the end of the pier to watch the start. If it is a nice day it could be spectacular.
