Reminder – Put Club Racing Dates in your Electronic Diary

Published by under Racing

As DutyMan has just been populated for the year (Race and Tide details), I thought this would be a good reminder. You can automatically include the DutyMan/Racing dates in your diary (Outlook, Gmail, Smartphones, etc).

The following link downloads a file in a format that is recognised by most packages (.ICS). To put into Outlook you can use the Import Option once the file is saved, and within Gmail Google Calendar you can just add the URL directly as anothers calendar. http://www.dutyman.biz/eventfeed/?id=T0001839&m=h11rCbtm . When any changes are made they reflected in this link, so if you are using a dynamic calendar like Gmail it should automatically update.

If you are more adventurous all this information is available in the Smartphone tab once logged into DutyMan, including links specifically for your duties. Remember however the file format isn’t just restricted to Smartphones.

Never miss a race !

David Hopper RNLI Charity London Marathon Run Update

Published by under Members

Hi Everyone,
Just a little update after the quiz on Thursday. With all of your help we managed to raise £1025, smashing the £2300 target, totalling £2900 overall! An absolutely staggering amount. I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness and generosity.
A massive thank you again to Jane, Debbie, Barry, Izzy, Alex Gibson and Steve Hopper for helping with logistics. Also thanks to Howard in the kitchen and the bar staff. Thanks to the Gourmet Deli Co. John Barry salon, Wild Health, and everyone that donated gifts for the raffle.

Now all I have to do is run 26 miles, can’t be that hard right?

Hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanks again for supporting the RNLI.

Best wishes, David

Catering at TBYC

Published by under Catering

Dear Members, Visitors and all that have enjoyed the catering at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club for private events.


The catering Manager Howard Fruin, due to personal reasons, has tendered his resignation to the club.


On behalf of all club members we would like to thank him for all of his hard work during his employment with us.


Howard’s dedication was evident through his commitment in supporting our sailing and social calendar providing excellent food that was very much appreciated.


We wish him well in his future ventures and look forward to seeing him as a member socially around the club  and I hope, out on the water.


Howard remains for one month and we would appreciate support for him in his final weeks as Catering Manager.

We would like to assure members that normal service will remain whilst exploring the very best for the club.


Kind regards


Steve Hopper  Commodore

Wayne A Miler  Vice Commodore
