Tynemouth SC (Newburn) Blaydon Race - CANCELLED
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:52:16 PM »
News just in from Howard Steavenson that storm damage means the Tynemouth SC (Newburn) Blaydon Race has been cancelled.

A combination of "The beast from the East" ' the spring tide flooding and the huge waves from the ESE - which hit Priors Haven from the one direction it lacks breakwater protection,- have caused severe damage to the beach, roadway, and dinghy park at Tynemouth SC. Yesterday TSC hired a JCB to remove the largest rocks from the tarmac but there is a monumental amount of work to be done by members to get the Haven, and the TSC dinghy park, into 'workable' condition prior to the start of our summer sailing season on Sunday 25th March. We have a work party planned for this  Saturday 16/03/18, which we hope will be well attended by members armed with shovels and wheel barrows. However at last night's TSC Committee Meeting we decided to (sadly) cancel the Blaydon Race at Newburn this Sunday in favour of solving our problems at Priors Haven.
