Return to Racing Guidance and Risk Assessment

AMENDED RISK ASSESSMENT – Includes Committee Boat and Racing with Participants from Different Households 

Racing is back at TBYC! 

Racing will now be as per the 2020 Sailing Instructions and the Committee Boat will now be in use full time.

HOWEVER! In order for this to happen within the HMG and RYA Guidelines, a lot of work has been done behind the scenes. We have completed a guidance document and a risk assessment which needs to be read by competitors and support teams alike.

By taking part, you will have been deemed to have read the attached documents and will follow the guidelines set.

As always we need volunteers to run racing, so please check Dutyman, your emails and the website and volunteer whenever you can.

We are delighted that we can now do this and look forward to a large turnout this weekend.

Windsurfer wanted

Published by under For Sale

Please see below from Frazer

Hi TBYC folks
As a former Yachts & Yachting employee I am looking to get back into windsurfing.
I’m based in Leigh and am looking to pay cash for a cheap and knackered 250cm-280cm shortboard that the club (or a club member may own). I’d rather buy off someone local so if you have one to sell please contact me and I’d social distance view and pay cash.



[email protected] or phone 07800 771536.
PS Happy if it’s been sitting in somebody’s garden for 15 years… or needs a bit of work.

Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

As a committee we took the decision back in March to continue to plan for a Cadet week, but not to put out the application forms due to the uncertainty of the duration of lockdown. The General Committee have been meeting on a weekly basis, closely monitoring the guidance from the Government and subsequent changes to the advice given by the RYA and PLA.


Having reviewed the planned changes to restrictions issued last week and even with the gradual lifting of lockdown, the obstacles were too big for us to provide a safe event on and off the water. We have therefore taken the decision to cancel this year’s Cadet Week. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, we are disappointed but feel it is the right decision.


As the summer progresses I look forward to seeing more people re integrating with the club and getting back on the water in whatever form that may be. When as a club we are able to organise activities safely, we will look at the remaining planned Cadet programme for the season and issue further guidance.
