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 as a safe recipient in your “safe senders” list.

Many thanks, DSC Committee.

Vacancies – a chance to support your club!

How would you like to be involved in shaping the future and present of our unique and friendly club?

For personal reasons, the roles of Sailing Secretary and Rota Secretary are about to become vacant. The roles are not difficult or time consuming but do require some moderate computer skills. They are Committee members and therefore are directly involved in the club organisation and future planning.

Sailing Secretary:

The role would suit anyone who sails regularly. The informal Sailing Committee currently ‘meets’ by email when there is an issue to discuss and the Secretary publishes the outcome accordingly. The Sailing Secretary also works with the administrator of the racing results to update the website.

Some of the duties could be delegated. The position becomes vacant at the AGM in January so please apply as soon as possible by email to

Rota Secretary:

You will be the main point of contact for the DutyMan online duty booking system (Already set up for 2019) and send occasional duty reminders.

Members organise their own duty swaps.

Please apply as soon as possible by email to


Go to the Members area – Committee Duties page on the web site for a full list of all responsibilities.

You will notice a few committee members are doing more than one duty which isn’t really acceptable, plus we need a Vice Commodore.  If any member feels they can help out and perhaps make a difference to the management of this club, the committee will be very pleased to hear from you.

Renew Your Membership – Overdue

As you know, Membership forms should have been returned by now. The deadline was 19th January 2018, but  several past members have still not sent in their forms. If you know of anyone in this position, don’t worry we will be delighted to welcome them back into the fold – but please chase them up to get their forms into the Membership Secretary without further delay.

If you have decided not to renew your membership, then we are sorry to lose you, but it would also be a great help if you would contact the Membership Sec to inform her of your decision – thank you.

If you are now a past member and are removing your boat etc, please can you check your space carefully and vacate your space ASAP. The boat park spaces will be re-organised next month, so please make sure that your boat is either registered now or removed by the 28th February 2018. After that date, any boats belonging to non-current members will be removed awaiting sale or disposal as per RYA and DSC rules. 

We are happy to try to help any past member in moving their boat off the park, and often can assist with if you would like any help.

Thanks so much for your understanding in this matter.
