Following on from my forum posting, our WYC league is well and truly up and running with expert team managers Don Sims and Larry Lamberton (Team Lardon aka The Coffee Club) at the top, followed (not that closely) by Wild Times (managed by the Commodore himself). It's not too late to join our league - our league is registered as Whitstable YC - email me at the office for the passcode. If you can't avoid may as well join in!! Melanie

Food - American style burgers and french fries (chips to us!!) will be served from 6PM to the start of the game. Don't miss it !!!!

Bar Committee Announcement

After considerable discussion and a vote amongst committee members it was agreed that we would temporally delay increasing bar prices (as a result of the March budget and supplier increases) until outcome of the next Mini budget on 22nd June, so as to avoid increasing bar prices twice in one month. Revised Bar prices will be introduced before end of June based on changes in the March 2010 budget, increased suppliers prices as well as the anticipated VAT increase in the June Budget.

Any old kitchens?

We need to replace the kitchen in one of the WYC tenanted properties. If any members are planning on replacing their current kitchen (and it is in good repair), please could you contact the office. We will need the whole unit (not just doors). Many thanks. WYC

Social Events

It looked like all those people who came to the BBQ and stayed for Bertie Butler and his 'Jazz Pilgrims' had a brilliant time on Saturday night. Next dates for your social diaries- June 12th,18th and 23rd for Englands first round matches in the World Cup. You will be able to watch England and enjoy some culinary delights of the opposing team cooked by Chef David and his team.

Race officers required for Evening Series

We need race officers for the Evening Series. The next race is on Wednesday 2 June. Please put your names on the board in the club. If there are no volunteers there will be no race - and that would be a pity.


The General Committee wish to draw members' attention to Club Rule 44 which states that "A member introducing a visitor shall on entering the Club premises insert the visitor's name and address in the visitors' book and sign the entry..........Non members shall not visit the Club premises more than six times in any one year". The Visitors' Book is being regularly checked and we are aware of offenders (who will receive a letter). More importantly, we risk losing our licence if we are inspected and found to be breaking the conditions of our Club Premises Certificate. WYC.

Have a look at this link - - it was put together by WYC member William Lee by using still from the webcam. Melanie

Well done Melanie

Congratulations to our very own Melanie Rogers, who sailing with Dan Norman, won the Dart 18 Open at the club over the weekend. They scored two firsts, three thirds and discarded a fourth in a highly competitive 36 boat fleet. Very well done!

Race Officer Duties

A guide for race officers is available on the club website. Before you arrive for your RO duty this year, please take the time to read it. And please arrive at least an hour before the starting time - two hours if you expect to be on the committee boat.

WIFI comes to WYC

You can now work from an office with a sea view. All you need is a wireless device and simply search for a "Freerunner Hotspot", connect to it and it will take you to the WYC landing page. You will then need to register!
