Dinghies

Two Laser Dinghies donated to the CBYA!

Categories:

Having read about the recent kind donation to the CBYA of the Stern dinghy (click HERE for details) ,  Dirk Mittman contacted us to advise that he would like to give his Laser dinghy to the CBYA as well. A working group comprising Dave Peachy, Rod Simpson, Chris de Boer and Hugh Epsom duly collected the dinghy, and transported it to safe storage location until we can restart the CBYA dinghy section.

We have also acquired another Laser which was formally owned by Diana Jarvis!

Successful Stern Dinghy Collection Project

Categories:

As a direct result of the local press coverage of the vandalisation of the CBYA dinghies at El Portet beach (https://cbya.org/malicious-attack-on-cbya-dinghy-section/#more-7697), the CBYA has been given a Van de Stadt “Stern” dinghy by a very kind, keen sailor named Herr Modersohn. We arranged a working party to collect the boat and relocate it to temporary safe storage until we can arrange a new secure location from which to operate the dinghy section.

The collection and relocation operation was carried out with military precision by the  following CBYA volunteers:

Successful Dinghy Relocation

Categories:

Many thanks to all CBYA members who came along to help with the dinghy relocation on Friday 25 May. They have now all been removed from the El Portet beach, and have been relocated to a temporary secure location whilst we review our options, and related costs, for relaunching the CBYA Dinghy Section.

If anyone has any suggestions regarding an alternative, secure location where we can store our dinghies, trailers, a safety boat, an outboard motor and other associated equipment, and easily launch, sail and recover our boats, please let us know by clicking HERE.

Malicious Attack on CBYA Dinghy Section!

Categories:

CBYA dinghy section suspended until further notice due to a malicious attack!

Those who turned up for Dinghy Day on Wednesday 9th May had an unpleasant surprise. All three dinghies had been holed, our inflatable safety boat had been slashed down both sides, and our latest replacement outboard had been stolen, despite being secured with a very strong chain, and being locked in our strongbox. There was no damage to any of the other boats on the El Portet beach, so obviously the objective was to put the CBYA Dinghy section out of action.

 

 The rock and rope shown above was used to smash the boats. read more →

A Big Set Back for the CBYA Dinghies!!

Categories:

We are very sad to report that we have been ‘broken into’ at El Portet, and our outboard motor has been stolen. In addition the aft locker on the new “Flying Fish” dinghy has had its lid torn off, and our life jackets which were stowed in there have also been taken! They also stole the Flying Fish trailer wheels, and its mainsheet. We are obviously being targeted because they have now also stolen our old rubber dinghy safety boat, as well as the rubber dinghy and cover which was chained up close to our storage box!

Louise and Wally took to the water on our free-of-charge Dinghy Day on Friday 17th February 2017.

Around twenty CBYA members met at Paradise Beach at El Portet, Moraira, to join in the fun. The winds were light, but ideal for those who had either never been out in a dinghy before, or who had not sailed in one for a long time.
