TBYC Volvo Ocean Race Game

Hi All, for all you armchair sailors, and following popular demand I am sponsoring a trophy for the best placed TBYC virtual boat in the game. For those of you who have not entered or who do not know about it, then here are a few facts. The virtual race mirrors the actual Volvo ocean race covering 8 legs over 9 months. The game has in excess of 120000 virtual boats. leg 1 is complete but we will run each leg as a race in a series and load the entrants on Hal’s racing programme as a series. The series will have 2 discards for the 8 legs to enable newcomers to join in and possibly win!!!. After the first leg the top five TBYC boats were 1st Daren Fitchew, 2nd Jeremy Sandford, 3rd Steve Healey, 4th Steve Hopper and 5th David Hopper.

The next leg starts on Sunday 11th Dec 2011 so get registered and join in the banter and fun!!!

You can register at

Then please leave a comment on this article so we can enter you and your boat in the regatta.

Happy armchair sailing Steve Hopper

Congratulations to Allen Burrell who has just won a silver medal at the Finn world championships.
2nd overall in a fleet of nearly 300 boats is an amazing feat, made all the better when you add in the fact that some of the sailors he beat are ex Olympians.
Well done Al we are all so proud of you.

Regards Spratty and Tracey and all of TBYC

Just a few quick things to think about with the worlds looming and continued training.

Could all let me know if you think I have missed anyone as far as emails are concered as I lost the hard drive on my PC and have re generated the Feva email list but do not want to miss anyone.

Also please email me if you are interested in buying new sails before the worlds and I will try to get a deal with RS but need to know by Friday 6th of May

Thank You

Published by under Racing,World's

I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has followed and supported me throughout my sailing. Being in Australia and knowing you have the backing of everyone from your home club is brilliant. I’m sure most clubs dont follow members like we do at Thorpe Bay, and this is what makes us different to others. Thanks also to everyone who came down to the club last Thursday for the Champagne reception.
