What's Happening Now at Twickenham Yacht Club

May has seen the return of our popular Improvers' Sessions, with both adult and children's events aimed at allowing people to develop their skills and get more experience outside of the weekly racing. More sessions will follow throughout the season, giving a good pathway into the sport. A similar initiative will also be run for paddleboarding, with weekend evening sessions throughout the summer. Racing is now in full swing, with the longer days allowing the return of the Wednesday Evening series. May also saw the Long Distance race to Teddington, with sailors braving rather wet conditions for the promise of a pint at The Anglers.

Tough conditions were also braved by a number of TYC boats travelling to Greenwich, as the annual journey along the tideway made a long-awaited return to the Cruiser fixture list. Many thanks are due to our hosts Greenwich Yacht Club and we look forward to welcoming them at Twickenham. The next Cruiser event will be in the opposite direction in June, with a trip up the slightly more tranquil River Wey.

As ever, anyone interested in the Club and its activities is welcome to come down and visit. For sailing, arriving at the Club at either 7pm on a Wednesday or 10am on a Sunday offers a good chance to watch the racing, go out in one of the support boats or even crew in a race. On 12th June, we will also be holding our annual Open Day, an ideal chance to learn more about everything the Club does, as well as a chance to try out dinghy sailing and paddleboarding.

For more details or membership enquiries (see separate News Item on the Home Page), please get in touch via the contact form on the TYC Website or visit the Clubhouse on Wednesdays (from 20:00 to 10:00pm) or Sundays (13:00 to 16:00pm).
