Dinghy Park Update

A big thank you to Nick, Chris, Rod, Julian and Howard for their help in organising and moving boats around the Dinghy Park last Saturday.

As a result there are a few boats that were moved to their allocated positions for this year. I have indicated that your boat was moved in the right hand column of the spreadsheet, whist every effort was made to secure boats as we found them, please check it is appropriately secured over the next few days.

Can all Lasers and Picos please tell their class captains if they are in a different position and I will then amend the plan appropriately.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.
Enjoy the long Easter weekend at the Club!

Reporting of property related works, ideas &; Volunteering

Reporting of property related works & ideas 

We are moving into a digital age, gone is the whiteboard in the bar for jobs that need to be done around the club.  Instead, we are moving online.

  • If you would like to register any new work suggestions or have any property related ideas, you can do this by completing the following online form: TBYC Work Suggestions & Ideas

Volunteering

TBYC thrives on its amazing volunteers, and we would like to make sure that we understand who you amazing people are. Therefore, we are asking if you are volunteer or would like to volunteer that you let us know who you are. This is not a commitment from you to do work, we won’t schedule you to do any work without coming to you first and asking if you would like to help. It just allows us to understand who may want to do some jobs around the club and who has this skills and time to do so. It will also allow us to join up on occasion, those that that are skilled and want to teach with those that want to learn that skill.

  • The link is here: TBYC Volunteer Information System
  • Once a job or idea is approved by the General Committee, we will post this on the club’s website as a volunteering opportunity and email out to the appropriate volunteers to see who is available to help the club to complete the job.

Please feel free to let me know if you would like to volunteer for any of the jobs that are on the TBYC Existing Work list at any time, as Adrian says say many hands make light work!

Thank you

Once we are finished we can all go sailing knowing that we are completely prepared.

9am Saturday, don’t be late for the start.

If you come we will get the jobs done quicker.

New Red Race Buoys – Help required.

Published by under Working Parties

Its planned to float the new race buoys out after racing on Saturday. These will then be swapped over at low tide on Sunday morning with the faded orange buoys floated back in prior to sailing on Sunday. Low tide on Sunday is at 9:40am, so I plan to start at 9:00 which should give plenty of time to deal with the 6 buoys. To make life easier, it would be great to have someone assist.

It’s not the lowest of low tides, so I’d suggest a wetsuit or drysuit will be required.

Clubhouse Maintenance.

Published by under Working Parties

There are always lots of jobs cropping up that need doing to keep the club house in order. I believe we can undertake some of these without needing to call in contractors. Instead of leaving all these jobs until a working party it would be nice to get them done as they arise. So if anyone out there from a trades background or DIY expert feels that they may be able to help in any way it would be great to hear from you.

I only have small jobs in mind, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please drop me an email  [email protected]

Many thanks.
