Pop-Up Blockers

In some situations where you have especially rigorous pop-up blocking you may find that you need to allow pop-up’s to permit all the site menu items to operate correctly, for example many detailed items open in a new window, which some browsers will recognise as a ‘pop-up’.

Use of “Cookies”

Cookies are small software files that are loaded automatically by many web sites into your PC when web pages are accessed. On the Dabchicks Sailing Club web site no use is made of cookies.

We do not collect any information using cookies and do not track your usage of the Internet. External sites, e.g. those accessed when you follow web links, may use cookies to track your usage, for example vendors often use cookies to track orders, and to allow them to send you “targeted” sales promotion material by email. Cookies can be disabled or monitored on most web browsers, however this will normally limit your ability to browse some of the more advanced web sites.

There are a number of well known sites that provide specialist usage tracking services, and it may be considered worthwhile specifically blocking these. Various software cookie management tools and Internet security aids are available, and can be used to control cookies, and pop-up adverts.


This site is tested to work correctly using modern versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome. It should also work correctly in Netscape, and most other modern browsers. Please report any incompatibilities to the Webmaster


Popup windows & close buttons and some other features depend upon having JavaScript enabled. If you get script warnings, this is due to you having script permissions in your browser set to a higher than the default settings. You may safely accept the scripts on this site.

The Dabchicks Sailing Club recommends that you always run an effective virus scanning application, and that if you are a serious Internet user, you invest in proper Internet security arrangements including a firewall.

About this Web Site

This site is built using Adobe DreamWeaver and will operate correctly with most version 4+ browsers and with 1024×768 display resolution or better. Display at greater resolutions will cause some of the formatting to change, with “white space appearing”. This should not affect usability. If you are using a display with a smaller resolution, e.g. 800×600, you will need to scroll horizontally to see the entire page.
