SUE ELKINGTON

Published by under Bilge

It is with sadness I have to announce that a club member Sue Elkington has passed away earlier today after a short illness.

Sue will be fondly remembered by members and in particular those involved in Cadet week where she ran the Bosuns hut for a number of years.

We at TBYC send our most sincere condolences to her son David and all the family.

Tier 4 update

Dear Members,

Following the Governments announcement that we are now in Tier 4 the club has reviewed its guidance to members.

Members can still access the dinghy park and free sail as there is no limit on outdoor exercise.

Please also consider you should be staying at home and only travelling for specific reasons like work and education.

If attending the dinghy park on your own you may only mix with one other person who is not part of your household or support bubble.

RYA guidelines currently do not include Tier 4 advice. This will be reviewed by the club when published.

Regards

Adrian Bunting

Suspension of Racing

Published by under Racing

Dear Members,

Having now moved into Tier 3 and with infections currently rising in the local area a decision has been made by the General and Sailing Committees to currently suspend racing at the club. We are aware that RYA Tier 3 guidelines do still allow racing to continue.

Many factors were taken into account when making our decision and included the clubs duty of care to all members including the volunteers for Rib duties and race management.

This means racing on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th December is cancelled.

The toilets and access to the dinghy park will remain open to members.

Members may still currently go free sailing but nothing will be organised by the club.

If members use the water please take into account Club Notice 8 issued on the 6th November which again becomes applicable.

The decision to suspend racing will be reviewed again prior to the Frozen sheets race currently scheduled for Saturday 2nd January 2021.

Regards

Adrian Bunting

Commodore TBYC.

Club opening and Food Orders

Update: Following the review of bookings Thursday evening, it has been decided it will be more cost effective to close for the evening. The club will still be open lunchtime.

Dear Members,

The club is currently open as much as possible on the run up to Christmas.

Whilst adhering to the Government guidelines the tables are arranged so that you may eat with friends whilst maintaining a safe distance.

Can members book in advance if possible as we do not want to have more staff on than necessary, however I do not wish to deter people coming down last minute as well.

This Thursday James is also cooking in the evening but as yet we have no pre bookings so please make sure you book.

If we receive no bookings for Thursday by tomorrow afternoon I will make the decision to close to avoid an unnecessary cost.

This Sunday the club now closes at 3.30pm to allow lunch time attendance but without sailing this week it was not believed worth staying open later.

Hopefully with the rollout of vaccines now started the new year will bring our normal times a step closer.

Kind regards

Adrian Bunting.
Commodore TBYC.
