The finale of the winter series will be the Xmas pudding race on Sunday 10th December, everyone welcome sailing or not. There will be free mince pies and mulled wine after the race plus Christmas puddings for the race winners.
Our Mirror dinghy Class race day is to be held on Saturday 7th October 2017, First Race start 2 pm. This is a rescheduled event from earlier in the year, so please support the afternoon and make it as popular as our first attempt, (and much fun as our successful Comet Class race day).
We might have a couple of race options depending on weather and time available.
If you have never raced, or are an old hand, just come along and join in the fun. At least get your Mirror out on the water so we can see as many red sails as possible. You don’t have to race on the day, but we would like you to join us for a sail. Free tea and cake for all Mirror Crews, Prizes for first three places.
If you can’t make it o this occasion, but want your Mirror to have a trip out, then why not offer to have her crewed by another club member? Let Nick Tasker know if you wish to offer your boat out.
Ten days to go and counting – If any Durleigh Comet Sailors are unable to join in our wonderful Comet Race Day, please consider offering your boat for another crew to sail. We would love to see you there, but the next best thing will be to see every single one of our Comets out on the water on Saturday 30th September. Let’s get as many of our Comets into orbit as possible.
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.
It has been a good year for the Icicle series.
A total of 24 entries and 23 races.
Well done to everyone who made the effort to come and sail, I am sure it has been enjoyed by all.
The provisional final results are:-
Malcolm Bale & Richard Maltby
Full results will be posted in the clubhouse.
Spring series starts next Sunday 2nd April, everybody welcome, especially those new to racing.
