Litter picking


 
 
If you fancy having a walk round the club, dinghy park, beach or surrounding area and want to pick some litter at the same time, but don’t want to touch it.
 
We now have litter pickers and rubbish bags for you to use. They will be stored with the oars in the little cupboard in the side of the club. Please ask at the bar or the secretaries for the code for the door if you are members.
 
** Please do return them when you have finished so someone else can use them in the future **
 
Happy picking …

Dinghy Park Update

A big thank you to Nick, Chris, Rod, Julian and Howard for their help in organising and moving boats around the Dinghy Park last Saturday.

As a result there are a few boats that were moved to their allocated positions for this year. I have indicated that your boat was moved in the right hand column of the spreadsheet, whist every effort was made to secure boats as we found them, please check it is appropriately secured over the next few days.

Can all Lasers and Picos please tell their class captains if they are in a different position and I will then amend the plan appropriately.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.
Enjoy the long Easter weekend at the Club!

Reporting of property related works, ideas &; Volunteering

Reporting of property related works & ideas 

We are moving into a digital age, gone is the whiteboard in the bar for jobs that need to be done around the club.  Instead, we are moving online.

  • If you would like to register any new work suggestions or have any property related ideas, you can do this by completing the following online form: TBYC Work Suggestions & Ideas

Volunteering

TBYC thrives on its amazing volunteers, and we would like to make sure that we understand who you amazing people are. Therefore, we are asking if you are volunteer or would like to volunteer that you let us know who you are. This is not a commitment from you to do work, we won’t schedule you to do any work without coming to you first and asking if you would like to help. It just allows us to understand who may want to do some jobs around the club and who has this skills and time to do so. It will also allow us to join up on occasion, those that that are skilled and want to teach with those that want to learn that skill.

  • The link is here: TBYC Volunteer Information System
  • Once a job or idea is approved by the General Committee, we will post this on the club’s website as a volunteering opportunity and email out to the appropriate volunteers to see who is available to help the club to complete the job.

Please feel free to let me know if you would like to volunteer for any of the jobs that are on the TBYC Existing Work list at any time, as Adrian says say many hands make light work!

Thank you

Dinghy Park Space

Evening Sailors,

The Dinghy Park is rapidly filling up with only a couple of spaces left on the plan. Please dont buy a new boat before provisionally securing a place. There may not be room for it.

I have noticed a number of boats out of position, causing others to put theirs where they can. There is no sailing this weekend so look at the Dinghy Park Plan and please use the time to move you boat to its proper position if you can. If someone else’s boat is in its place, please talk to the owner or if you can see where it should be on the plan, move it for them.

Other people have informed me that they have always had a space but are not on the plan this year. If this applies to you, please tell me as soon as you can and include where your boat is located in the dinghy park.

If you and a friend have put boats in a different order than shown, please message me the actual position of your boats and I will update the plan.

A link to the plan can be digitally obtained from Janet or myself via email. I will publish the most up to date plan in the Clubhouse before the weekend.

Thank you

DINGHY PARK 2021

Evening Sailors,

From tomorrow, All Dinghies and Catamarans that have paid for this seasons storage can bring their boats into the Dinghy Park. With no main access to the Clubhouse, viewing the printed plan cannot be public so it is located inside the building within the area of the back door, same access for toilets.

You can also review online using the link that has been in the the recent email and posted within the TBYC Facebook Group.

The Dinghy Park plan is always an active document with boats being bought and sold. In an effort to keep the document up to date, if you arrange to swap with someone and your boat is in a different space, please let me know by emailing [email protected] or commenting on the google doc.

Merry Christmas To All At TBYC

Dear Members,

It has been a tough year for many of our members but the strong TBYC spirit has been evident throughout the year.

The award of the Gerald Mitcham Cup to all our members is a fitting tribute.

Lots is already planned for 2021 and our club spirit will continue to thrive.

I would like to thank our staff and the many unsung volunteers of the club for making us such a success.

Merry Christmas and happy sailing for 2021.

Best wishes

Adrian Bunting

Commodore TBYC
