Malicious Attack on CBYA Dinghy Section!


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 →

During the Spring of 2018, a TOMs LADDER RACE SERIES took place. The race series was devised to increase participation, improve skills, develop racing skills, encourage everyone to have the opportunity to skipper (not just the CBYA skippers), employ different levels of experience and encourage team work. The following key aspects defined the series:
• Utilise the TOM one-design boats for competitive racing
• Maximise the number of boats on the water by limiting the crew number to a minimum of three
• Sail with white sails only to enable sailors with a wider range of experience level to compete. Beginners are spread between boats • For each race day, the (TOM) boat number, skipper and crews are randomly picked from a hat.
• Every participant accumulates individual points for each event and sails with a different skipper/crew each race day
• The scoring system is applied as follows:
1point for first, 2 points for second, etc… 6 points for DNS, DNF and 7 points for not racing
• RCNC provided the race officer, who laid the course on the day and recorded the results. A special thanks go to Pablo and his team!

The postponed one week CBYA cruise to Ibiza /Formentera is now confirmed to start from Dénia on Saturday 23rd June 2018, and we plan to get back on Saturday 30th June 2018.

Unfortunately, no other CBYA-owned yachts are able to join this cruise on the selected dates, however we are happy to investigate chartering a yacht if there is adequate additional confirmed crew interest. CBYA-member owned power boats are also welcome to join the cruise.
