Cadet start of the season update

Published by under Cadets,Club Notices

Through the winter the cadet committee with the support of the general committee have been busy beavering away with some exciting plans and projects for the clubs cadet fleet that we would like to share with you now.

TBYC cadet week has been fortunate to be supported by many generous sponsors over the years. This money is used to subsidise the week for members to allow them to enjoy a fun packed week of activities both on and off the water and build the cadet fund for investment for the future.

The club is in a very privileged position to have a substantial fleet for the cadets and members to use including 6 Pico’s, 14 Oppies, 2 lasers, 1 feva and a brand new RS Tera purchased approximately 18 months ago. The Pico’s are used throughout the season for the cadet training pathway, RYA youth training and fun. The Oppies are a familiar sight on the shore during beach club sessions and cadet week. The lasers, feva and tera give cadets the opportunity to try a boat before moving to a new fleet (booking information for these is on the website).

Wear and tear is inevitable so I wanted to make sure that we entered the new season with the assets in the best condition possible by utilising the cadet fund which has been strengthened by our sponsors. I particularly want to thank our 2023 sponsors; IT Method – Matthew and Louise Sullivan, Wetsuit Outlet – Ian and Gina Holman, White and Co – Carla Kennedy, Hudson Weir, Hasib and Heeock, MWS accountants – Jon Gorridge, Dedman Gray – Mike Gray, Above Wealth – Anthony Rowland, Herve Engineering – Howard Warrington and Michael Lloyd, Harrison Holgate – Matt Waters, Thorpe Hall School, Bay Optical – the Graves family, Estate Research – Alex Avery – as well as those who have supported us historically. Through the cadet fund we now purchased 6 new suits of sails for each of the Pico’s, a new Tera mini sail to ease the transition from Oppie to Tera for our smaller cadets and have taken delivery of 7 brand new fully fitted out Sailqube Optimists from Xtremity.net!
Thanks go to Nick Alston for his work on the Picos and Adam Clark, Rob Graves, Tom Hanham, Mark Dell, Scott Weller and Matt Rainbow for their help to complete the Oppie project.

Due to a sizable anonymous donation from long standing members the club feva has also undergone a refit over the winter carried out by Mark Dell including a full suit of sails, rigging check and new cover.

As the new season starts the fleet is already to go.
Please return your boats to the dinghy park as per the dinghy park plan.
Cadet pathway training dates can be found on the calendar on the website; pop them in your diary.
If you would like to use the feva, tera or laser please use the booking system
Cadet week starts on 5th August entry will open imminently so please complete applications asap.
If you interested in sponsorship please contact me

We look forward to many happy hours on the water learning and developing skills while having fun!

Thanks again for all your support.
