We intend to have a joint venture between the race committee and social convenor this Wednesday evening the 28th July to coincide with the end of the Wednesday nights racing for this month. This is open to all, not just those out racing.
A burger with cheese & salad along with a soft drink will be available at the cost of £3.00 each. Vegetarian alternatives will also be available. Food will be available from 19.30hrs.
All members who would like to attend and meet up with other members for a chat are most welcome and if you could give me a call also if the skippers of each yacht could ask their respective crew the number who will be having a burger and get back to me so we can ensure there is enough food for everyone.
For the Racers we will announce the results of this month’s races.
We hope this will be well supported which will allow us to do this regularly.
Kind regards Race & Social Committees.
Please contact Kyle Stewart
We would ask that Boat owners recently lifted in, take advantage of what could be the last weekend without cars in the compound, we need to tidy up any leftover materials and stack or remove cradles to allow access and safe parking for vehicles.
If this clear up is well supported and completed over the weekend TCC Council intends to reopen the compound on Monday the 14th of June, We would ask that you continue to follow Covid protocol of social distancing along with good hand hygiene practice and regularly use the hand sanitiser station provided. Gloves will not be required for those going out to their boats, provided good hand hygiene is seen to be used.
For those with boats still out of the water or those using club dinghy and oars, workshop tools and equipment, which are touched regularly by multiple members, all the rules still apply including wearing glove and masks.
Any members found not to be adhering to TCC Rules i.e. wearing masks and gloves where appropriate using hand sanitiser, spraying touch points before and after use, disposing of Covid related rubbish in the correct bins, then they will be in breach of TCC Rules and dealt with appropriately.
NB. Just because you are allowed does not mean you have to, anyone wishing to continue wearing their gloves and masks going to their boat has the freedom to continue this practice.
We trust we can rely on your cooperation in these matters and continued support in keeping our club safe and functional.
Regards Covid team, Compound convenor and compound committee.
All those intending to participate in this Wednesday race will hopefully have already contacted Stuart Powrie for your start times,
If not, you have until the end of today to do so.
The course for this evening and until the end of June, unless you are notified otherwise will be,
Short course leaving Lappock rock and Beechams buoy to port.
The start and the finish line is from the point of the dolphin on the harbour entrance to the red Mill Rock buoy.
Please record your Finish Times and return them to Stuart by email on Wednesday evening.
Kind regards Race committee.
Now that we have our boats back in the water, TCC racing committee would like to invite all members who might be interested in sailing a set, short course on Wednesday evenings to get involved.
If you have never raced before please do not let this put you off as assistance, help and advice will be available.
This is a friendly club activity, not super competitive serious racing. It gives members a chance to go out in company on a Wednesday evening allowing you to fine-tune your boat to be more efficient which can be transposed to getting more out of your boat when you go cruising.
This will be run as a pursuit race, not a line start. Each boat will have a designated start time and you will record your own finishing time.
If you have a CYCA handicap, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a start time. If not, email giving boat name and class, indicating whether it has a folding or fixed prop (number of blades) and whether it has a roller furling headsail. Allowances are given for these.
Also, indicate if you intend flying a spinnaker.
Start times will then be worked out.
We plan to start this Wednesday coming June 9th. Please send details by Tuesday, 8th.
We would hope you will support this activity and continue to be mindful of good Covid protocol while doing so.
More information will follow before Wednesday evening.
TCC Race committee.
