Sandhoppers go crusing next year! 2023 …….

Published by under Cruising,Sandhoppers,Social

This was the TBYC cruisers at Queenborough last year, 7 boats on one mooring! It would be great to replicate this next year with Sandhoppers. There are a number of weekends when we can leave at 10:30 (sh) wander (or race) over for lunch on the outgoing tide and come back on the incoming tide. Who fancies it? Maybe a trip or two further up the Medway as well? A sail up to Chatham Marina? Stay overnight in the hotel and come back the next day? All ideas welcomed …. [email protected]

** Saturday briefing at 10:00 in the club ** Sandhopper National Championships – 13th & 14th August 2022

Good morning,

Not long now until the Sandhopper Nationals at TBYC and great to see some of those entries coming through and some surprise entries expected as well! We could have 17+ boats on the start line this year which would be fantastic.

Janet will not be able to join us this year as she is on holiday. Therefore, could I ask that you complete the paperwork promptly (By Wednesday) and make payment so this can be dealt with ahead of time.

Also, as a reminder to compete in the National Championships you must be an (Sandhopper Class British Association) SCBA Member, this is still only £10 to be a full member or £5 as an associate. If you are already a member, just a payment is required to the SCBA account (details below) with your name as a reference.  If you are not a member, can you please complete the attached form, return this as per the instructions and make the payment with you name as a reference.

The BBQ is booked for Saturday night this is £12+ per head, it will include a choice of meats and salad. The SCBA will be providing complementary nibbles and a Pimms and Lemonade as well.  Please let Mark Robinson ([email protected]) and I know if you are intending to join us for the BBQ, so we can let the chef know the expected numbers. All are welcome. Start time will be circa 18:00, Mark will confirm the full details and menu shortly.
