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.

Sara- Huge Thanks after Quiz Night

Published by under Notices

I would just like to say a huge thank you to Monica and John Howard for a fantastic quiz night last night at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club. Great organisation and a brilliant mix of questions.

An even bigger thanks to them for donating this year’s proceeds to my new charity, Big Purple Pants.

On behalf of my fellow Trustees and I – Toby, Steve Hopper, Malachy O’Sullivan, Claire Wood and Carole Sims – I would like to thank everyone who attended and gave so generously.

From a £3 per head entry fee, £5 per strip raffle and inpromptu auction, an enormous, staggering £1,615 was raised!!!

Thank you to everyone who came along, to everyone who bought raffle tickets, to everyone who donated auction items and to everyone who bid and paid for those items.

What a great club we have with wonderful people!

Thank you, thank you, thank you – you have all directly helped local people with secondary cancer. That is something to be immensely proud of.
