TYC Yacht Club

Commodores Communique (Jan20)

Hi Everyone

2020 has arrived, happy New Year all.

As we start this New Year and new decade we start on a positive note.  As many would have noticed the Hyacinth is dying and this is as a result of bugs that were introduced that only eat the hyacinth.  See the full story by Stuart Claque attached at the end of this communiqué.

Now that the hyacinth is disappearing we can get back to what TYC is known for and that is good sailing.  I will attach our current Sailing Calendar too.

Ronnie and I will be putting our permanent marks back in the next few weeks.

Upcoming events:

We have our first Sail Training weekend for the year on 1st and 2nd of February 2020.  If you are keen to join us please contact Rowan Bouwer at rowan.bouwer@gmail.com 

TYC are hosting the 2020 North West Championships over 2 weekends 08/09 and 15/16 February 2020.  We expect quite a few visiting boats so if you are in the vicinity come support and join in with the festivities.  We do plan on having a bring and braai on both Saturday evenings and Salads will be available at R50.00 per person. Breakfast will be available on both the Sundays of the regatta.

We have had quite a few private functions that have happened at the club over the December period as well as a photo shoot that took place a week ago.  These events have really helped the clubs cash flow.  Thanks for your hard work managing these events Fred.

House Work:

You should have received email communication from TYC regarding NO INCREASE in membership fees for 2020/2021 season. Please start making preparations now already to ensure you pay your fees as soon as you get invoiced in March 2020, this will keep our club in a positive cash flow and make it easier to keep our club the best place to be. Those that are still in arrears, this is a call to please get yourselves up to date and start the new season on a clean slate.

When making use of the swimming pool please do not put chairs in the pool as this damages the floor, also look after the creepy crawley, it is needed to keep the water sparkling for all to enjoy.

Best Regards

Ralph Paterson
