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.

2019 TBYC duty calendar – now’s the time to choose your duties!

With the start of the 2019 season only 2 months away and the sailing programme now published I’ll be putting names against duties during February to complete the calendar in DutyMan.

For those that did not take the opportunity to pick your duties at the Club & Sailing AGMs you now have an opportunity over the next 2 weeks to pick duties online.

You should receive an email from [email protected] today with a link and instructions on how to do this.

Prefer not to do it online? – then simply email me at [email protected] with dates you can’t do and I’ll allocate duties for you.

If you have not received your email (check your spam folder?) or have not done duties before and would like to get involved (no experience necessary) please contact me at [email protected]

TBYC Sail Training – Stage 3

Published by under Notices

Another successful group of sailors achieved their Stage 3 certificates on Sunday.

The course involves two ‘land based’ sessions covering Sailing theory, Racing rules, Club Racing essentials, VHF Radio, Meteorology and Navigation. Also two ‘On-the-water’ sessions when candidates practice their Seamanship and Racing skills, such as sailing backwards, Man-over-board and effective starting. 

Well done to all.

THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS ON 30 JUNE / 1 JULY

Thanks to all the volunteers who stepped up last weekend to allow sailing to go ahead.

 

These were: John Casson, Tony Padbury, Gary Burrows, Barry Duce and Alex? (hopefully the right Warrington!) – and of course thanks as ever to those with duties who were there.

 

We have a significant number of people dropping out of duties this year often at the last minute and with no good reason which just makes it harder for the rest of us.

 

So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – if you have a duty and can’t do it for any reason do the following as early as possible:

  • Mark as SWAP REQUIRED on Dutyman and actively look for others to swap with.
  • Approach others who are not looking to swap – often they will swap with you if you ask.
  • Or find a future Vacancy on Dutyman and swap with that

If all else fails please let the Duty Officer know asap and at least a week before so we can advertise for a replacement

If you need help with Dutyman (it’s easy when you try, honest ) just contact me at [email protected] I will assist.

When people have made a real effort and have a reason they cannot do their duty we can often help but that is difficult if things are left until the last minute.
