Club Toilets – Now open for Limited use

Published by under Club Notices

We have now assessed and released the toilets in a limited capacity to club members only.

These are for essential use and NOT changing rooms.

To enable more room externally the parking bay closest to the rear door is suspended please do not park there. Also, the smoking area is suspended.

The existing disabled toilet is now set up as Disabled / Family and Ladies only, and the existing Gents is now set up as a lockable toilet and re-designated as Unisex.

Guidance on toilet use under Covid 19:

  • All toilets now have engaged / vacant sliding signs please operate to indicate usage
  • All touchable surfaces must be wiped down before and after use
  • All toilets must be left clean after use. Please leave as you would like to find them
  • In toilets, the lobby cleaning station and the external cleaning station, there is sanitizer for your use
  • The toilets have soap as usual for you to wash your hands
  • The cleaning stations have disposable wipes to wipe down all touchable surfaces
  • The rear door must also be wiped down and has been changed back to the existing access code
  • Signage will be posted at the rear door and by the cleaning station to help
  • Please also remember to be patient and do not forget you can always remind people to be mindful of distancing
  • Please observe social distancing 2m
  • As in all establishments across the country we would remind you that you use the facilities entirely at your own risk and we would urge you if you feel unsafe not to use the facilities
  • The remainder of the club remains closed at present. Although your committee are working towards how we may re-open however this is likely to be in stages and observing social distancing

dinghy park / lower car park security

over the last week I’ve been to the club dinghy park to work on boats 4 times, 3 or these times the gates have been wide open with the lock left hanging and twice with the code still displayed. Now I realise the lock and gate aren’t the best or biggest theft deterrent, but it does go some way to keeping the general public out. So please, if you’re first into the car park, close the lock back up and scramble the code and if you’re last to leave, shut the gate and lock it back up please, it’s not rocket science people, I’m sure you wouldn’t leave your front doors open or your keys in the lock when you go out, so please don’t do tantamount to the same to the club dinghy park.

Sail Training 2020 – Update by the Sail Training Officer

Published by under Cadets,Club Notices


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to run the sail training at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club as originally planned.

Our General Committee is meeting regularly to review and discuss the situation.

The feasibility of small group Sail Training later on this season is being considered as we keep reviewing the Government’s and RYA’s guidance.
Similar considerations are given to Cadet Sailing.

All Sail Training applications submitted electronically are valid.
Further applications are welcome:

Looking forward to see you on the water:
Best regards:
Andras Gal
Cadet Sailing Coach and Sail Training Officer
