IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL TMOR COMPETITORS

 

Moorings for TMOR 2017

 

There was a meeting today between EACC representatives, BESL and the owners of Boundary Farm, who own the old 24 hour moorings at Thurne Mouth.  As most people are aware, these moorings are currently being removed by BESL. It is hoped that they will be replaced by next season with 24 hr pontoon moorings run by the Broads Authority. As a result of this meeting we have agreed that this bit of bank, which currently resembles the Somme, cannot be used for moorings for TMOR this year. Competitors are asked not to moor there.

 

The options for mooring are:

  • The marsh bank from the TMOR tent all the way up to the moorings near Thurne Dyke. There will not be any racing up the Thurne this year so it is probably acceptable to double or even treble moor along this bank – depending on the width of your craft. Please be aware of nesting birds and keep paths to and from boats as discreet as possible
  • The southern bank of the Bure going from the TMOR starting point on the corner up towards Horning. This is piled but the piling is not is particularly good condition but goes for a significant distance. You will need a dinghy if you moor there. 
  • The Lion inn at Thurne is undergoing refurbishment and should be open by the regatta. The moorings on the north side of the dyke belong to the pub and are currently free 24 hour moorings for patrons of the pub. The pub will apparently be enforcing the 24 hr limit.
  • The moorings on the south side of the dyke belong to the Red House Farm and any mooring there will be by negotiation with the landowner – Mr Lamb.

Regretfully this will make mooring difficult this year. We ask competitors to be tolerant and to try to help people to moor wherever possible. Wherever you moor please remove any planking or temporary jetties used when vacating the site.

 
And would everyone please note that the facilities at the Bureside campsite are for the exclusive use of those staying on that campsite. THEY ARE NOT available for the general use of Regatta goers. EACC currently enjoy a good relationship with the landowner and we don't wish to jeopardise this by abusing his trust and goodwill.
 
Apparently there is going to be wall to wall sunshine and 10 mph breezes all weekend. See you there.   

 

Tom Moore.

HELP FOR TMOR

 

 

HELP REQUIRED SETTING UP
So here we are again at the start of May and Thurne Mouth Open Regatta is once again upon us.
 
And of course we need your help! 
 
We need bodies for site clearance and general set up for Wednesday 24th, particularly Thursday 25th and Friday 26th - if you can help us out for any of those days or parts thereof please email me, Tom Moore, when you can make it.
 
We will of course be extremely grateful for any help you can offer
 
Hope to hear from lots of you
 
Tom Moore (TMOR Coordinator)
 
Footnote: Charlie and BESL have done a grand job on site and I think we can cancel most of Wednesday’s work party.  However I will be there on Wednesday with my strimmer. If one or two people happened to turn up with strimmers it would make my job easier.  However we will not be able to use the rhond to bring in trailers, beer, generator etc., so we really really need as much help as possible on Thursday. There will be a lot of carrying to do.  A barrow or two would be very useful since all the beer and all the equipment will need to come across the bridge.
 

 

TMOR SAFETY BOAT CREW

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!
