2018 TBYC Sailing Instructions

Published by under Racing

The 2018 Sailing Instructions are attached covering club racing from 30 March 2018 to 7 October 2018.


For Spring, Summer and Autumn series races, the same 3 starts ( at 3 minutes intervals) , 3 courses ( 2 windward/leeward and 1 square) and 5 fleets ( Windward/Leeward, Slow Catamaran, Fast Mono-hull, Slow Mono-hull and Sandhopper) as in 2017 are retained.  There is no separate Cadet fleet /series/course in 2018.


One change for 2018 is that results for all general handicap trophy races ( except the pursuit race) will also count towards  the series ( Spring, Summer, or Autumn)  in which the race occurs.


Reminder: Helms who have entered any series race ( including the Midweek Series), and which now include trophy races, can claim average points for a particular race if they are undertaking any of the club race duties ( except Duty Officer) on that day. Average Points can be claimed by indication on the Declaration Sheet on the day.

3 Day Cadet Race training

Published by under Cadets

There will be 3 days of Cadet Race Training and a Mini Race series at the end of the Easter holidays for 11+ year old boys and girls.  The training will be progressive and it is hoped that Cadets can attend all three days, however, less is still fine. The training will cater for all abilities, but the minimum requirement is to be able to sail a beat, reach and run.

We also welcome new Cadet members; a great way to meet new friends, while training and having a good time.


Thursday 12th April 7.30 – 8.15  Training Room – Briefing and a recap on Rules, Starting and Safety


Friday 13th April – Meeting/briefing (changed)  9.00 am – On the water 9.30am


Saturday 14th April – Meeting/briefing (changed)  9.30 am – On the water 10.00am


Sunday 15th April – Meeting/briefing (changed) 10.30 am – On the water 11.00am


Reserve the dates for a great start to the season.

Parental help will be most appreciated to help on ‘Polly’ with Safety and Scoring etc.
