TYC Club Trophies

As a sailing club, Twickenham Yacht Club has acquired many trophies over the years that are awarded to sailors at the Annual Ball and Prize Giving.  Several trophies are prizes for specific handicap races and regattas; there are also trophies for best results over the Summer Series of races.  While not quite the America’s Cup, these trophies reflect hard-fought battles on the river as TYC sailors compete for their name to be engraved as a winner!

Glovers Island

 

A spring Easter Sunday morning handicap race, first presented by Syd (Commodore 1982-84) and Sally Baker in 1979 and won by D. Croft.

Easter egg prizes are the order of the day for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places and cream eggs are presented to all involved.

From the Race Hut start line, the course takes sailors downstream to Glovers Island for rounding, which can catch out many experienced sailors as they pass through the narrow shallow waters. There’s usually only time for one lap with a finish back to the Marble Hill steps or Lower Dinghy Park.
