TBYC New Year’s Day Brunch – the best way to start the New Year!

Published by under Bar,Catering,Social

Members of the General Committee, under the guidance of Mick Kilkelly & Martin Swindon, will be serving full English breakfast and other brunch options including scrambled eggs with Smoked Salmon (no pre-orders required).

Tickets £8 per person (Children £5.00) go on sale Tuesday from the bar or the Office.

We have two sittings for brunch – 11am or 12.30pm.  You’ll need to select your sitting when you buy your tickets.  You are welcome to arrive at any point during the session you have booked but you will need to vacate your table by 12:30pm for the first sitting or end of service at 2pm for the second sitting.

This is always very popular and places are limited, so please buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment (ticket sales close 30th December or when we’ve sold out).

The bar will be open serving Bucks Fizz, Bloody Mary and all your other favourites.

New Red Race Buoys – Help required.

Published by under Working Parties

Its planned to float the new race buoys out after racing on Saturday. These will then be swapped over at low tide on Sunday morning with the faded orange buoys floated back in prior to sailing on Sunday. Low tide on Sunday is at 9:40am, so I plan to start at 9:00 which should give plenty of time to deal with the 6 buoys. To make life easier, it would be great to have someone assist.

It’s not the lowest of low tides, so I’d suggest a wetsuit or drysuit will be required.

Kyle Stoneham fastest Moth in Bermuda

Published by under Racing

Thorpe Bays YC, Kyle Stoneham is currently enjoying the sun in Bermuda, whilst he races in the International Moth Regatta that is taking place.

Even though racing was cancelled for a day due to strong winds, some of the competitors went sailing in Hamilton Harbour, so they decided to run some speed trials, with Kyle completing the one minute course in top slot. Well done Kyle.
