Juniors – Time to get the hats, gloves and lap top out!

February 26th, 2013 by

It’s nearly time for our first sail of 2013 Juniors. We’d always planned to get out onto the water in March and so weather permitting we’ll be meeting at the lake at 1430 0n 9th March. On a word of caution, due to the very cold water in March, I’m not sure this time of year will suit everyone so please don’t feel obliged to attend this early in the season.

Can I ask that all juniors and/or parents drop me a quick email at so that I can pull together a distribution list please. Please let me know the names of the juniors, their age, experience and the boat they sail and also confirm the name of the adult(s) who will be attending with them. Let me have any potential members emails you have too please and I’ll add them to keep them posted.

So that I can organise the Oppies, please let me know asap if you need a boat for the 9th.

Thanks all – Really looking forward to a great season.

Give me a call you have any queries – 07771 841334.

Dart 18 GP 1 – Dee Sailing Club

February 23rd, 2013 by


Hi All
Just to let you know that the final arrangements for the first GP of the Dart18 season at Dee Sailing Club have been put in place.  This year follows our traditional format of 3 days of racing and two nights of partying with live music on both nights.   Last year we had one of the best turnouts of the year and we are hoping for a repeat this year, so please support your club and our many visitors and put this in the start of your sailing program.  As always there is still plenty of work to do around the club in preparation, so please look out for your DSC Darts updates for when and how you can help. Thanks Simon.
