News at Whitstable Yacht Club

Club News - June

Team of Kent!

Thank you to Tankerton Bay Sailing Club for hosting the Man of Kent Regatta on Saturday. Thirty WYC boats sailed down to the course laid off Tankerton for the afternoon, and Whitstable Yacht Club came away with the Team of Kent trophy thanks to the skilled sailing by Harry Newton and Charlie Campion in their Lasers and Phil Emery & Phoebe Payne in their Merlin Rocket! Harry Newton also tool the Youth of Kent prize, with WYC’s Thomas Oliver nipping at his heels in second. Charlie Campion took Second Master of Kent and WYC’s Jack Quinney-Martin was Third Rookie of Kent! Thanks also to the WYC members who supported the event, manning two Support Boats and the WYC Committee Boat which we leant to TBSC for the day… all three came in handy towing WYC sailors back after the wind died away!

Slotty is back!

It’s great to see the WYC Committee Boat, Slotty, back on the mooring in front of the club. Thanks to the team who brought her down from her winter berth this morning. We look forward to making use of her this weekend, providing the support to the Merlin Rocket Silver Tiller Open Event and Taser National Championships, and next next weekend we’ll will be taking her to support Tankerton Bay Sailing Club in hosting the Man of Kent.
