Check your emails for messages from the Membership Secretary, and please respond.

IMPORTANT – Regarding your contact information, we have become aware that some members may not be receiving emails from our membership secretary. As this is one of our Primary forms of contact for the club, please ensure that you let Sue Weston know that you are able to receive her emails. She did ask recently for all members to contact her and affirm that they are receiving her emails.
As of this date, either many more emails are not getting through than we thought, or lots of members still need to contact Sue as a matter of some urgency, please.
Please check your junk/spam folder and mark memsecretary@durleighsc.org as a safe recipient in your “safe senders” list.

Many thanks, DSC Committee.

We breed champions!

The handbooks are ready!

Dear Sailors,
The handbooks are ready and can be collected from the clubhouse next time you are up.
They are in a box, underneath the notice board.
They are in alphabetical order and I would be obliged if they could be kept that way as it will make it easier for all concerned.
Many thanks
Sue Weston
