Cadet Night this Friday at 7.30

Published by under Cadets

I would like the Cadets, if they wish, to write an individual Christmas Card to the 100 Orphans that I had the privilege of supporting in India recently. I will supply the cards and names and ask the youngsters to write a simple message. It will be the first Christmas Card they have ever received. Suryapet Orphanage is a Christian hostel, so that they will be celebrating Christmas. I will also send cards and toothbrushes! More photos on the TBYC Facebook page.
To read the full Blog go to and click on the Suryapet Ophanage Menu/Tag.

Matt Dear Trophy – Cadets

Published by under Cadets

Twenty TBYC Cadets in twelve boats competed in the Matt Dear Trophy at Thames Estuary Yacht Club on Saturday. This prodigious trophy, in memory of Matthew Dear who tragically lost his life after taking Anabolic steroids, is to raise the awareness of the dangers to young people.

The Cadets hugged the start line and fought for a prime positions, making a good start. After an unfortunate port-starboard collision, Adam and Robin emerged 2nd and 3rd, both in Lasers. Meanwhile the RS Fevas were battling through the fleet soon gaining 4th 5th and 6th positions. Those Cadets in Picos were fighting the waves holding their positions as the winds increased. By the end of the race our TBYC Cadets gained 2nd (Adam), 3rd (Luke and Sam), 4th (Robin), 5th (Hannah and Lydia), 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th 10th, 11th, 14th and 16th out of 29 boats.

Although we did not get first place, Adam held onto his 2nd place throughout the race and received his well deserved trophy and gave a vote of thanks on behalf of the visitors.   Well done Cadets!!

This annual charity race was first held in 2010 in memory of Matthew Dear, who tragically passed away in 2009. The aim of the charity is to raise awareness of the dangers of Anabolic steroids and appearance and performance enhancing drugs. See for more information.
