Icicle Series 2018

A reminder that the Icicle series starts tomorrow.

Please make sure you have read and understand the ‘2018 Sailing instructions’ and ‘2018 Icicle notice of race’



There are still many duties to fill, so if you are intending to sail please put your name on the rota list.

Good news is that the water level has risen considerably, unfortunately this has left the walkway to the pontoon under water, we need some willing volunteers to sort this out.

Icicle Series 2018

A reminder that the Icicle Series starts on 7th January 2018

We had a very good Icicle series 2017 with a total of 24 boats entered. Let’s see if we can do even better in 2018.

To qualify to sail you must put your name ( in the case of juniors an adult) on the duty list, this is posted on the notice board.

Sailwave results for Durleigh S.C

It was a cold day with a moderate variable NW wind blowing.

The numbers racing were bolstered by 3 brave youngsters in their Topper dinghies, unfortunately 2 had to retire due to capsizing and getting very cold, hope this does not put them off competing in the future.

Well done to young Ed in his Topper, finishing and getting 3rd place in the first race.

Dan, Malc and Tom vying for position, guess what happened next?

Today’s sailing

The start of the Winter series gave us very windy conditions

Unfortunately it was too much for our younger sailors, we hope this has not deterred them and hope to see them next Sunday.

For those that did take to the water it was a race between RS400s and Comet trios.

With plenty of capsizes Malcom Bale’s decision to put in a reef in the mainsail of his trio ┬ápaid off coming 1st in the second race.

Winter Race series

The winter series of races starts this Sunday 5th November for 6 Sunday’s.
There will be 2 races, 11am start for 1st race and the second race possibly back to back.
We have some new young members racing this series, they know the basic rules of racing but have not raced before, experienced racers please give them some leeway, we don’t want to put them off.

Today’s sailing

Very windy conditions for racing today.

3 RS400’s decided to race.

Unfortunately Elliot and Jemma had a rig failure and had to be towed back to the shore.

Jack and Roy did better but capsized near to buoyed off area and needed assistance.

Despite capsizing several times Scott and Dan made it to the finish.

Good to see these guys making the most of what DSC has to offer.
