For all those members and families who are new to
sailing, or just new to DSC, welcome to the club on behalf of the Flag
officers, Committee members and other club members. We hope you will enjoy
being a member of our club and take up as many opportunities as possible
to join us both in the sailing and social events.
A number of things characterise DSC - its family
atmosphere, the variety of sailing we do, its youth sailing, and its Optimist
fleet among them. It is run entirely by volunteers and all members have
to undertake duties during the year.
Cadet member's families are expected to do their
club duties as well as helping the cadet fleet in some way, and are encouraged
to join in the life of the club as a whole. Ideally we would like to see
the adults join in the club races too...

Sundower week ends with a stunning sunset and party!
SUNDOWNER AND MID-SUMMER FEST
After a windy start to Sundowner 2018 the sailors were blessed with lighter winds, sunshine and high tides. Congratulations to James Brosnan-Wren for winning the series, followed by Will Powell in 2nd and Bruce Woodcock in 3rd and and thankyou to all those who volunteered during the week. Our inaugural Mid-Summer Fest wrapped the week up last night, and saw over 140 of our Members doing what they do best - party! The summer night was long and warm, the food delicious and the disco got everyone raving up until last orders. We raised over £1200 for the RIB Fund - Thank you!
