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 →

SPRING 2018 TOMs LADDER RACE SERIES RESULTS!

Categories:

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!

TOMs “Ladder” Competition – collect points to win prizes!

TOMs “Ladder” Competition – collect points to win prizes!

We are starting a new TOMs program for 2018.  This is  to increase participation, improve skills, encourage everyone to have the opportunity to skipper (not just the approved CBYA skippers), include different levels of experience, and encourage team work. But mainly – this should be FUN! 

Initially we will use white sails only, with a crew of 3-5.  We propose three days each month, two Thursdays and one Saturday over  three months. We can increase  frequency  if requested.

Every crew member will accumulate individual points during each event, and you will sail with different crew each time.  The best score of twelve races will be collected, the rest discarded. So the more you sail, the more low scores you can discard!

CBYA Veterans’ Regatta

On Thursday, September 28, the annual CBYA Veteran’s TOMS Regatta took place in Calpe.

Five veteran teams competed against each other, with five crew members on each of the RCNC-owned TOM racing yachts. The average age for each team entered in the Veteran’s regatta had to be minimum average of 65 years of age.

Wind conditions were light, but favourable, for the CBYA sailors, and three races were run over a short, twice round, windward-leeward course.

A Fun TOMs Cruise & Raft-up!

Categories:

When I agreed to go sailing a couple of months ago, I obviously was not thinking straight. I’m not a good swimmer, I hate deep water and I get seasick! The closer the day got, the more apprehensive I became.

The day arrived, a glorious one at that, and my husband, John and I walked to the Real Club Naútico de Calpe. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, a good start. John and I were put on a TOM skippered by Dave, with experienced crew member José. Everything seemed so complicated –  I wondered what I’d let myself in for! read more →
