Haulout - Clarification to Last Week's Eblast

On September 8, the haulout forms were sent to all members; a reminder was included in last week's eblast regarding the haulout which included inaccurate information.  To clarify the due dates for payment with an example:

  • The Basic Fee (i.e., fee for boats up to 25 feet) is $125 if the registration and payment are received by September 30.
  • The Basic Fee is $175 if the registration and payment is received between October 1 and October 11.
  • October 11, is the deadline for submitting registration and fee for haulout.

For those submitting payment by e-transfer, the password in last week's eblast was incorrect.  The correct password is "tyc".

Please note that the information on the haulout registration forms that were sent on September 8 was correct.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please email:  treasurer@thornburyyachtclub.com.

Racing Round Up

Saturday - Stewart Wootton

Conditions were light and variable for the Stewart Wootton race. Nine boats started but due to decreasing winds only three boats finished. Had we shortened the course after one lap we would have all been able to finish but that decision had to be made at the centre mark when we were all experiencing the best winds of the day! Second Quest managed to cross the line with less than 10 minutes left in the 4 hour time-limit to take a well deserved 3rd place. The results are as follows: 1st: Crazy Eight; 2nd: Smokum Too and 3rd: Second Quest; DNF: Elmo's Fire, Sass J, Taliesin, Champagne Magnum, Cloud 9, Liminal Experience.

Sunday - John Zolt Single Hander

5 brave skippers took part in the single hander race. It was quite the change from Saturday with winds around 30 knots. It was incredible to see the display of boat handling under such conditions. Moonshadow was unable to finish due to a shredded sail (bringing a lightening bolt shaped piece of Jib to the prize giving). Second Quest was unable to finish due to a challenging furling situation. Crazy Eight took the bullet, followed by Shy Tuna in 2nd place and Liminal Experience in 3rd. Heather's family will be donating $50 to charity for each entry.

See you on Saturday for the Turkey Race. Skippers meeting 9:30 in the pavilion.
