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...
