Sad News

Categories:

We are very sad to advise our members that our Boating Officer, Karlheinz Witte, died Saturday morning 21st July at his home in Denia after a short, brave battle with a particularly aggressive cancer. Those who knew Karlheinz will remember his patient sailing instruction, his sense of humour and his hard work on behalf of the Club. He initiated and managed our monthly Charter Cruises from Denia, maintained the CBYA statistics, organised presentations in Javea and was a key member of the CBYA Committee.

He will be much missed. Our sincere condolences to his wife, Aura, and the rest of his family.

Another Great Day Out on the TOMs!

Categories:

The TOMs longer distance cruise and raft-up, originally planned for Thursday 7th June, was subsequently rescheduled to Thursday 5th July. Unfortunately, crew availability was limited to eight TOMs sailors on the day, and disappointingly, we were unable to arrange a suitable safety boat to accompany the TOMs on the cruise. This meant that we to stay in the Calpe bay.

However, we still had fun!! read more →

CBYA Cruise 2018: Formentera

——————————————

A week’s CBYA cruise on Tricky D was a resounding success, with founding and new CBYA members enjoying a week’s sailing around Formentera.

Richard Jones offered CBYA members a week’s cruise to the islands. Four crew signed up: Brenda Bates, Jim Cooper, Jurgen Jeebe, and Amanda Topson. Thanks to the patience of our skipper and his first mate, also a qualified skipper, it was a great opportunity for less experienced members to improve their sailing skills, gain confidence and knowledge of the area.
