TBYC Sandhopper Open Evening 2 July 2021

Thank you to all of you that supported and participated in the TBYC Sandhopper Open Evening Event.

I’m pleased to report that it was a great success with many new people getting out and managing to enjoy a Sandhopper for the first time. We hope to run another session later in the season, if this is of interest to you please let me know so I can get an idea of numbers.

Thanks again and happy sailing to you all.

Yantlet Trophy Postponed – Sun 26th June

Yantlet Trophy
I am sorry to say that we need to postpone the Yantlet Trophy to another day. There are safety concerns that need to be taken into consideration on this occasion. With an RYA Rib Instructor Course clashing with this, we do not have the assets available.
Instead we will re-run the McKinlay Cup which was blown out a few weeks ago. This will be replaced on the Calendar and another suitable date for the Yantlet will be posted in due course.
Look forward to seeing a good race on Sunday.

BYC Nore Race Saturday 19th June

Good News! We can run the Nore Race this year! There was some doubt we could get on the pier, but it’s all OK!

 

Programmes are being posted out to clubs right now. You can also download a copy from www.benfleetyachtclub.org. Follow the link at the bottom of the first page.

 

More good news – the Prizegiving will be the following Friday night as usual, as we don’t have to invoke the socially distant options considered in the printed program.

 

It is only about five weeks to the event so please get your entry in as soon as you are able. Thanks.

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.

HRH Duke of Edinburgh

Dear All

As you know the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh will take place during racing on Saturday afternoon. Whilst some sporting events have been cancelled we believe that Prince Phillip – a keen sailor himself, would not have wanted us to stop. You can almost hear him say “just bloody get on with it”…

We have therefore decided that racing will go ahead and the Race Management Team will endeavour to have the first race finished before 15:00. This may mean it might be a bit short.

At 15:00 there will be a long blast from the Committee Boat’s starting hooter, signalling the start of the Nation’s One Minute Silence. The Ensign will be lowered for the duration. The same will happen on shore for those enjoying the Club’s “Car Park Bar”.
