Expressions of Interest for DSC Dinghy Cruising invited

Picture

A few members have been chatting about the possibility of organising some form of dinghy cruising this year. We are not sure what form this might take, perhaps a weekend, with an overnight, or  maybe just a day sail down a river – returning on the tide.

Using suitable cruising dinghies to journey to local rivers or estuaries we could possibly include camping and other activities.  Let us know your thoughts and depending upon interest, we would be happy to organise a small group. If you are interested please complete the brief (10 questions) questionnaire at

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/68DKJDG

Please make sure you leave your surname when completing the questionnaire, so we can contact you after we have analysed the results.

 

2017 Regatta

Another great Durleigh Regatta.  Not the best turnout we’ve had despite perfect weather. but those that did, enjoyed a day of music, food, sailing and games.  Big thank you to the band and all those that worked their socks off to make it happen.

Father’s Day race and ‘Tea On The Lawn’

Despite very light and variable wind for the 1st two Sunday races the wind picked up a little for our Father’s Day race.

‘Tea On The Lawn’ followed with scones, butter, jam and of course clotted cream.

It was a great success and would propose that we put it on the calendar for next year,  thanks to all that made it happen.

Although Sunday morning started with little or no wind, by 11:30 it picked up to approximately 6/7 mph.  The light winds, blue sky and sunshine made for some enjoyable, yet challenging sailing.

Winners were:
1st Tom Abbott (Streaker)
2nd Dan Langdon (Blaze)
3rd Mike Hayes and Steve Chidgey (RS400)
