IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL TMOR COMPETITORS

 

Moorings for TMOR 2018

 

Mooring for TMOR this year should be a little easier. 

Please could competitors who are bringing boats to moor on the bank please read and follow the following instructions:-

  • Moorings at Boundary Farm.  

 

1)    By kind permission of the landowners Mr and Mrs Donny Cooke, the Boundary Farm moorings will be available to TMOR competitors. These are the old 24 hour moorings that are currently listed as ‘No Mooring’

2)    Please note that these mooring do not have any posts to moor to, and vessel owners will need to provide their own anchors.

3)    The bank has been profiled and slopes into the water at an angle of 45 degrees. Boats may well not be able to get tight alongside the grass bank.

4)    There are no rubbish disposal facilities on this bank. Please ensure that the bank is left immaculately clean and clear of any rubbish. This is vital if we are not to prejudice the use of these moorings in the future.

5)    Mr and Mrs Cooke have emphasised that the use of these moorings is entirely at the risk of the vessel owners and they will accept no responsibility for any mishap or problems however caused whilst these moorings are being used during TMOR

 

  • Moorings along the Reed bank from the TMOR tent towards Thurne Dyke

This area of reed bed belongs to The Roll family and it is with their kind permission that we are able to hold the regatta and moor our craft. They have made some requests of craft mooring on that bank and the TMOR committee are very concerned that their requests are understood and complied with. Craft that moor to this reed bed will be noted and any non-compliance with these requests will be noted and referred to the TMOR committee for future reference and possible action.

 

1)    The reed bed must be as undisturbed as possible. If you use posts to moor to then they MUST be removed after the regatta.

2)    If you use pallets to get on and off your craft these MUST be removed after the Regatta

3)    PLEASE DO NOT cut numerous paths through the reed bed up onto the flood wall. The Rolls’ have requested that there is one path cut along the marsh beside the moored boats. The TMOR committee will attempt to cut this path during the build-up on the Wednesday, and there will be an entry and exit at either end. If you have a problem with this please inform us. 

4)    Please do not cut large holes in the reed bed for dinghy storage / BBQs etc. 

5)    This is an attempt to minimise disruption to wildlife and the ecosystem which are very vulnerable at this time of year particularly with nesting birds. Please support it.

BAR ROTA
Hello all, TMOR is approaching so I am putting together the bar rota and am seeking 
volunteers again for bar duties.
Please don’t worry about experience as its not really necessary, apart from the fact that
you’re likely to be serving your skipper, crew or friends!
If you are willing and able to help please email me at diseeney@live.com with preferred times / days (Preferably 2 hour slots) It would also be really helpful if you could include a contact number
for the TMOR weekend. 
 
The club really does appreciate your support and assistance during the weekend.

Many Thanks, in anticipation

Di Seeney.
 
 
 
 

 


 
 
 
On Friday Evening from 8pm only
 
POP UP GIN BAR
 
EACC present a sumptuous selection of finest flavoursome gins, a munificence of marvellous mixers and gorgeous garnishes for the delection of the discerning denizens of this temporary tent of temptation.  For your pleasure, ladies and gentleman:
 
Blackwoods Vintage, from Shetlandserved with Fevertree bitter lemon and strawberry OR Fevertree tonic and orange peel.  EACC's  #no 1# gin from the 2016 summer cruise.
 
Gin Maré, from Spain, served with Fevertree Mediterranean tonic and rosemary. 2016 runner up and the classiest bottle.
 
Monkey 47, from the Black Forest.  Served with Fevertree tonic and lemon peel. Named for the year TMOR was first sailed (possibly). Formidable.
 
Thomas Dakin, from the Warrington canals area.   Served with Schweppes tonic, orange peel and coriander.  Based on an historical recipe for a cordial used as a stimulant to revive weary travellers on a long journey. 3RR?
 
Adnams First Rate, from Suffolk. Served with Fevertree tonic, lemon and thyme. Award winning, unlike their local football team.  Or ours, come to that.
 
Pell and Co Hopton Gin, distilled at the White Horse, Neatishead.  Served with Fevertree Mediterranean tonic and dried orange.  Our favourite locals, getting more local by the day. Hurrah!
 
Bullards Strawberry and Black Pepper, from Norwich. Served with Fevertree tonic, strawberries and mint. Summer in a glass, without the rain or the mud.
 
Priced at £3 for a single or £5 for a double.
 

THURNE MOUTH MALTS

 
We are pleased also to announce the re-appearance of the Thurne Mouth Malts Pop-up Whisky Bar at TMOR on Friday evening from 8pm as a supplement to the always excellent regular bar. We can present a small selection of single malts which represent the range of scottish whiskies to enable you perhaps to try a new style or simply a new expression of an old favourite. The following have been selected for their quality and to provide something different to the average bar selection:

Highland - Balblair 2003 - full bodied, citrus fruits,honey and spicy finish.
Highland - Old Pulteney 12 - the maritime malt. Light on the palate, salty. An east wind at TMOR.
Speyside - An Cnoc 12 - barley on the nose, clean and herbal, with a spicy fruity crescendo.
Speyside - Balvennie Double Wood - mellow, nutty, sherried. Warming. 
Islands/Islay - Talisker Storm - banana, wood smoke, brine. A beginners peated.
Islands/Islay - Bruicladdich Port Charlotte Heavily Peated 10 - a marmite of a whisky from the most maverick of distilleries. That's Bruichladdich. 
Lowland - Auchentoshan 3 Wood - triple distilled.  Cooked fruit, sherry toffee and rum like.

Tasting notes available and all priced to allow you to try the range. Water!
