Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race at TEYC

Published by under Club Notices

Congratulations to Team 2; Michael, Nathan, Eleanor, Ashleigh, Charlotte and Holly for gaining 1st place in the Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race.
Well done to all 22 Cadets who represented TBYC in the Interclub ‘Cadet’ Team Race on Sunday 19th September. We gained the first 3 positions and even a 5th place with some of our sailors who have just started sailing this season.
1st place TBYC Team 2
2nd place TBYC Team 1
3rd place TBYC Team 3
5th place TBYC Team 4
There were 73 boats, adults and Cadets, entered for the event.  The Mass start was exciting and a little frightning from the beginning, but our Cadets manage to make good progress and complete the course with good times. A special mention to Hannah and Lydia in their RS200 who actually gained 3rd place out of all 73 boats.

ALL SAILING MEMBERS!

Published by under Club Notices

Dear Members

 

We have had over 100 entries for the Winter Sailing and Storage. We are passed the deadline to secure a slot but will of course take entries. However, these will now be on a discretionary basis and a space will not be guaranteed.

 

ALL OTHER DINGHIES must vacate the dinghy park by the 10th October – just over 2 weeks from now. If no entry for storage is in place before then, it will be assumed that you will be taking your boat home on or before this date.

 

There are many boats in the dinghy park that have not been touched for years. If owners don’t come forward and they are unidentifiable (which the club rules require) they may be disposed of. Please don’t be that owner who does nothing and leaves it to others to move!

 

Thank you for your help with this.

 

Regards

Howard

Rear Commodore Racing TBYC

Welcome the disco
Be around throughout the party

ACTION REQUIRED

I need to send off names to the organisers on Wednesday morning, so I need to know:

Name of Helm, name of Crew , Boat Class, Rig (if applicable) and Sail number.

 

On Sunday, sailors are put into teams of fours. If your youngster wishes to make up/or want to be in a specific team, then inform me in the same reply, otherwise I will choose.
Please E-Mail me by Tuesday evening, so I have time to collate the information needed. My address is [email protected]
Click on the link below to see the Sailing Instructions etc. but don’t worry I will go over the main points on Thursday. The Consent form needs to be filled in either before (print out and complete, bring it to the meeting) or on Thursday.
