TBYC is a registered Bart’s Bash event venue. Whilst not essential,  competitors are encouraged to register their boat on the Bart’s Bash web site prior to the day.

The TBYC results will also be included in the club results set and the TBYC Veteran’s Trophy will be awarded to the first ‘veteran’ helm. A veteran is 55 years or over on the day of the event. The race is also one of the TBYC Sprint 5S series races.

Bart’s Bash is officially a monster

The Largest Sailing Race in the World, verified by Guinness World Records.

The first bash in 2014 saw over 30,000 sailors take to the water at over 550 locations around the world. Forty eight boats took part at TBYC

Bart’s Bash is now an annual fundraising and participation campaign promoted by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) and this year, the organisers want to see participation grow like crazy and see Bart’s Bash become the biggest sporting event in the world.

Laser Open Meeting

Published by under Laser's

Three Lasers travelled to Harlow Blackwater Sailing Club on 12th September, when we arrived the breeze was light with a few gusts, but by the time we had rigged and launched it was blowing 25mph, we had a long run to the start line which was hairy to say the least and i was upside down within 2 minutes !! The course was set straight up and down the river towards Osea Island which meant it was a windward leaward course, and the run which was about 2 miles long was an out of control sleigh ride from start to finish with boats doing death rolls everywhere and people swimming to catch up with their boats !

Michael Airey gave up after having his boat blown away from under him, Chris Tillyer was in the mix up the front as usual, and i had more capsizes in these 3 races than the whole of the year. This is a lovely club to sail at and they had 21 entries from 5 clubs.


Chris Tillyer ended up 2nd overall, well done.

Rick Paxman was 5th overall


One for next years calendar

kitchen closed today Sept. 8th

Published by under Catering

Hello everyone

Just to let you know that the kitchen won’t be open today, Tuesday 8th September.

I do apologise again for any inconvenience. I know there have been a few occasions recently when the kitchen has not been open on a Tuesday, but for me this has been unavoidable because of the holiday season. Although my own son is now back at school I have meetings with his teachers today which are important to attend.

We are trying to recruit another kitchen team member, once we do we can resume our full Tues-Sun timetable.

Normal service will resume tomorrow, Wednesday.

Best regards to all and thank you for your support.
