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.

dinghy park / lower car park security

over the last week I’ve been to the club dinghy park to work on boats 4 times, 3 or these times the gates have been wide open with the lock left hanging and twice with the code still displayed. Now I realise the lock and gate aren’t the best or biggest theft deterrent, but it does go some way to keeping the general public out. So please, if you’re first into the car park, close the lock back up and scramble the code and if you’re last to leave, shut the gate and lock it back up please, it’s not rocket science people, I’m sure you wouldn’t leave your front doors open or your keys in the lock when you go out, so please don’t do tantamount to the same to the club dinghy park.

Sail Training 2020 – Update by the Sail Training Officer

Published by under Cadets,Club Notices


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to run the sail training at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club as originally planned.

Our General Committee is meeting regularly to review and discuss the situation.

The feasibility of small group Sail Training later on this season is being considered as we keep reviewing the Government’s and RYA’s guidance.
Similar considerations are given to Cadet Sailing.

All Sail Training applications submitted electronically are valid.
Further applications are welcome:

Looking forward to see you on the water:
Best regards:
Andras Gal
Cadet Sailing Coach and Sail Training Officer

RYA YouTube videos for kids

Published by under Cadets

Dear Cadets and Parents,

I would like to recommend the RYA YouTube Channel.
#SailFromHome RYA
The “Sail Smarts” series has started for kids.
Check it out!
There are many other good resources on sailing on YouTube and online.
Sadly at present we can’t do much more than that.

I hope that we can safely get back to sailing again at one point in the future.

Best wishes from Andras

This one is on tides:
