Inter Club Dinghy Challenge


Thurrock Yacht Club takes on Thames Estuary Yacht Club in an inter club dinghy challenge.

Rig and prepare: 1200

Briefing: 1330

Racing Starts: 1400

HW: 1553


The race will run in accordance with standard TYC sailing instructions.


The TYC wayfarers will be divided into two fleets to ensure a fair mix of age and variant boats. The fleets will be allocated to the clubs by a draw.


There will be 3 individual races, although this may be reduced to two (at the discretion of the race officer) if the series is not completed before high tide.


The awards will be as follows:

  • Top TYC Crew - based on standard series scoring
  • Top TEYC Crew – based on standard series scoring
  • Top Overall Crew – based on standard series scoring
  • Top Club – based on series standings.

The formula for calculating the top club will be to add the finishing positions for each club in the overall series together, with the lowest score winning.

The awards announcements will be followed by a “bring your own” barbeque.
