Super weather for sailing

 July 2021 – Sailing is back on the agenda!

We are following the latest guidance on how to stay safe through COVID, but happy to say that sailing is a great opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy some welcome exercise in relative safety. Whether you are sailing just for the fun of it, or joining in one of our races, don’t forget your sun cream, and cover up from the Sun. We also recommend plenty of fluids  during this heat wave. Take care, and have fun.

If you just want to potter about and unwind after a busy day in the office, that’s fine. If there is a race going on, just stay clear of the racing line and you will be more than welcome to sail whenever we have safety cover on the water. 

If you are interested in joining us, we would love to hear from you – drop us a line on contact@durleighsc.org and we will get back to you to arrange how we can meet you and get you sailing…. we look forward to meeting you.

Sunday Spring Series ends

A sunny day with light and variable north/north westerly breeze that built to a nice fresh breeze after the second race had finished.  There were eight starters for both races, but the second race saw a marked split of the front four from the rest of the fleet on the second lap.

Congratulations to Martin and Lynn Harland, who win the morning and afternoon series.

The Summer Series starts next Sunday.

It’s all about the shifts

A sunny Sunday with light, variable and shifty wind.  Well done to the Comet Trio of Lynn and Martin Harland sailed a ‘horizon’ job on the rest of the fleet, who suffered the ups and downs of the shifts, to take the lesser positions in both races.

Wednesday and Sunday results now up to date

First Sunday racing

The first of the Spring Series finally started on the 8th April with a light to moderate north westerly breeze. There was some confusion during the morning race so, for fairness, the results are calculated for the first two laps.

Results can be found under the ‘Racing’ tab.

Pontoon

A big thank you to those who helped to retrieve the pontoon today, especially to Eddie Oliver who went in up to his neck to assess the situation.

Push The Boat Out 2017

A great day for both DSC and SYCSA.

It was a big success with around  200 people attending and over 80 people going  for a taster sail, some more than once.

There was a good breeze at times which added to the excitement for our guests.

We had 3 new members join on the day and also sold one of our club boats.

Many thanks to all those who helped, it was an enjoyable day for everyone.
