Winter Dinghy Park

Hi All, It’s that time of year when the sailing season is over and the winter series will begin (after the Cruiser and Sandhopper liftout 21/22nd October). As per the Club program, all dinghies should have vacated the dinghy park in order for these manoeuvres take place. Specifically rows E,F,G.
If you own a pico or laser and wish to pay for storage for the winter please contact your class captain to discuss rack storage and how you will put your boat on the racks. It is YOUR OWN responsibility to ensure your boats are moved.

Thanks from Jim Percy

Published by under Club Notices

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Simon Boygle, Adrian Bunting, Chris Boshier, Tony Clarke, Robin Foster-Taylor, and George Mellon, who provided help and comfort to me when I collapsed in the dinghy car park yesterday. And also to others who showed their concern about my well being both during the incident and afterwards.

After very thorough checks in the ambulance and at the hospital, which took account of my existing medical condition, I was given a clean bill of health, with the incident being put down solely to dehydration. I had only consumed one cup of liquid since the previous evening. So be warned – do keep the liquid intake up.

So again, many thanks indeed to the wonderful Members of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club who continue to provide great expertise and care, both on and off the water.

Jim Percy

Stingray groups

Due to changes in the numbers of Cadet in Stingrays, We have needed to revise the teams. The revised teams will he posted at the YC before registration this afternoon.

This year Stingrays is as popular as ever but is relatively young and inexperienced so we have worked really hard to make the teams as balanced in average age and experience as possible. Thank you for your support with this as we move towards another fantastic week on water and the beach.
