Sailing this weekend

Published by under Club Notices

Sailing This Weekend
Having looked at the advice from the Environmental Services and Anglian Water, the sewerage issue is no better. With advice not to enter the water and stay off some beaches, we feel it would be irresponsible to put our volunteers and sailors in harms way.
We have therefore decided to cancel racing for this weekend. I’m really sorry and hope that the situation is sorted very quickly. We’ve lost enough sailing recently as it is.
We will not be closing the slipway and if you wish to sail you may. Please be aware that cub ribs are not to be used so no safety cover will be available.

Old Masts around the dinghy park

Published by under Club Notices

Thank you to Tolga Kulahcigil and Steve Margerison for volunteering today to help move the old masts off the mast rack ready for the Sandhopper lift out and for when the new mast rack is built.

If you had a mast on the rack that can be disposed can you please arrange for this ASAP or mark it up for disposal and we will arrange for this.

If you have mast that is to be used for a boat and it should be on the the rack please place it on the new rack once it is in place.

All masts that are left in the temporary space as per the photo once the new rack is in place will be disposed of as we will assume that they are no longer required.

This message will also be emailed to all members and posted on the TBYC website.

Thank you
TBYC House Rep & TBYC Sandhopper Class Capt

TBYC Flag Lowered for Sir David Amess

Published by under Club Notices

TBYC Club flag has been lowered today as a mark of respect for Sir David Amess who died  earlier today. Although not a club member this is very unusual circumstances and Sir David Amess was one of our local MPs  and had been for nearly 40 years. He was a prominent member of our local community known by many at the club and his passing in such tragic circumstances is so sad for all. TBYC wishes to pass on our condolences to Sir David’s family and friends.

Commodore TBYC.

Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race at TEYC

Published by under Club Notices

Congratulations to Team 2; Michael, Nathan, Eleanor, Ashleigh, Charlotte and Holly for gaining 1st place in the Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race.
Well done to all 22 Cadets who represented TBYC in the Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race on Sunday 19th September. We gained the first 3 positions and even a 5th place with some of our sailors who have just started sailing this season.
1st place TBYC Team 2
2nd place TBYC Team 1
3rd place TBYC Team 3
5th place TBYC Team 4
There were 73 boats, adults and Cadets, entered for the event.  The Mass start was exciting and a little frightning from the beginning, but our Cadets manage to make good progress and complete the course with good times. A special mention to Hannah and Lydia in their RS200 who actually gained 3rd place out of all 73 boats.

Dear Members


We have had over 100 entries for the Winter Sailing and Storage. We are passed the deadline to secure a slot but will of course take entries. However, these will now be on a discretionary basis and a space will not be guaranteed.


ALL OTHER DINGHIES must vacate the dinghy park by the 10th October – just over 2 weeks from now. If no entry for storage is in place before then, it will be assumed that you will be taking your boat home on or before this date.


There are many boats in the dinghy park that have not been touched for years. If owners don’t come forward and they are unidentifiable (which the club rules require) they may be disposed of. Please don’t be that owner who does nothing and leaves it to others to move!


Thank you for your help with this.

You would need to decorate the main bar and then take down and pack up at the end (we have some decorations)
Arrange sweets/snacks for trick and treat buckets
Welcome the disco
Be around throughout the party
I will arrange disco and ticket sales
If no one volunteers by Sunday the event will be cancelled. Please contact me for further information.
Thanks in anticipation
