BUMP & GRIND BULLETIN
FOR 24-Sep-20

Haul-Out will be held on October 16th and 18th. The Haul-Out email blast was sent out to all members on Monday, Sept 19th. If you did not receive it, please check your junk mail. If you still did not receive it, please contact the TYC at info@thornburyyachtclub.com.
 

Please be sure to fill out the section regarding how your mast will be placed – mast up, stored on your boat, or stored in the pavilion. This is very important for Haul-Out boat placement.

 

We will need your waivers and payment by October 2, 2020.  The cradles are coming to the harbour on Oct 7th. The club cannot move your cradle without your waiver and payment by October 2nd.

 

Cruising Awards

 

As the 2020 cruising season comes to a close, it's time to tally up the miles traveled for the annual distance awards.

 

This year we will be handing out the burgees for the distance awards as well as those for the Northern and Southern Rendezvous at Haul-out in October; the recipients will be named in the following week's e-blast.

 

The distance awards are for:

  • 300 nautical miles,
  • 600 nautical miles, and 
  • 1,000 nautical miles.

Note that the distance awards are for the miles attributable to boats registered with TYC (i.e., charters don't count).

 

Please send us your mileage for this year.  In addition, please let us know if you attended the "unofficial" Southern Rendezvous in July.  (We have a list of the attendees of the Northern Rendezvous.)

 

Please send your accomplishments to:  vc@thornburyyachtclub.com

are working with the Town regarding our safety plan for the Haul-Out. We will be having limited access to the harbour during Haul-Out, similar to what we did for launch. We will provide more information to you over the next 2 weeks.
