The Week Ahead 5th – 11th August


Thurrock Yacht Club Open Day 17th August – Message from the TYC Club Secretary

“I am writing to inform your club members of the forthcoming open day and race at Thurrock Yacht Club on the 17th August 2019.

As usual we will be hosting an open race, available to all visiting yachts, which contests the “Kay Lucas Trophy”. This trophy commemorates a much loved member, and is raced every year. Her family remain involved with the club and promote this race to support the cancer research charity. Entrance is £5 a boat and an additional £1 for each crew member. All these funds go towards the charity.

In addition we will host a bar-b-q and evening live band entertainment. As always this will be a fun and worthwhile day which supports a very good cause and remembers a very lovely person.

Moorings are available and can be arranged by contacting TYC Club Secretary (see TheWeekAhead email).

We would be very pleased to see you on the day. I hope you continue to enjoy a good season, and I hope to see you on the river.”

Thank you
Craig Noler
Secretary TYC
