busy weekend

and what a weekend, tail end of (now tropical storm Michael), Storm Leslie, Sandhopper Final Fling and Lift out, First races of the Winter series (13:00 Sat & 14:00 Sun) and the cruisers being lifted out Saturday morning too!
So if you have a boat paid for in the dinghy park, please ensure it is
a) not in the way of either the cruisers or the sandhoppers (row’s I,J,K or M)
b) securely tied down
AND if you have not paid for winter racing or storage, please remove your boat from the dinghy park as they should have all moved last Sunday.

A HUGE THANK YOU !

Published by under Race Officers,Racing

Thanks to the Race Officer, Assistant Race Officer and six safety crew members who turned up early this morning dressed head to toe in what could only be described as Ocean Wet Gear. All to support club racing in what would have been testing conditions. As Duty Officer is was great to see such commitment from this group of members doing their bit for TBYC.

Endeavour Trophy 2018

Published by under Racing,Sandhoppers

DELAYED DUE TO HIGH WIND FORECAST – RE-RUN TBA

Many of you may be aware of the Endeavour Trophy. Named after the 1934 British Entry to the America’s Cup. The Endeavour is the annual “Champion of Champions” race held at the Royal Corinthian YC in Burnham.

The much coveted (and extremely valuable) trophy can only be entered if you have won a National Class Championship within that year. All classes sail the same dinghy – currently RS200’s over a weekend’s fleet racing in a series of very short upwind/downwind courses.

This year the RCYC have introduced a Keelboat version of the trophy. This will be sailed on September 22nd and 23rd using the 707 yacht. The RCYC have a fleet of these boats, all newly fitted out and ready to race. The type of racing is designed to make exciting, high speed sailing and minimise the spread in the fleet. With a target time of 15 minutes per race, the emphasis is on as many short races in as quick succession as possible. The winner of this event will be invited to compete in the main Endeavour Trophy event in mid October.

Peter Thompson, this year’s Sandhopper National Champion, has put together a team and has entered the event on behalf of the Sandhopper Class and Thorpe Bay Yacht Club. His crew will be made up of: Mark Dell, Paul Beasley and Chris Clarke. All of whom are among our club’s top sailors.

They will be competing against this year’s National Champions from the following classes: Squib, Sonata, RCOD, J24 and Flying Fifteen. All of these will be top class sailors and the racing, now with the addition of the Sandhopper Class, will be very exciting to watch from the banks of the Crouch. So, do come along and support them if you can.

The very best of luck boys!          https://royalcorinthian.co.uk/endeavour/
