We are now entering the busiest part of the season and we have numerous special sailing events arranged for all boat classes. There are some significant changes to the sailing calendar so please make sure you have them in your diaries.
DSC are running a Performance dinghy racing series taking place on 18th June, 9th July, 6th August and 17th September, all starts are outside in the river at 15:00 hrs when we hope with the sea breeze and sun it will become an exciting series.
Another new series is the Joint Clubs Saturday Keelboat racing, in order that the performance series dovetails with this series the start times have changed. The keelboats will now move to an afternoon start time as shown below, please amend your diaries. Entry opens on line from Monday 23rd May.
The Saturday Keelboat Racing takes place on 11th June, 18th June, 2nd July, 9th July. The race on 18th June is scheduled as a long race so will start at 1300hrs, the remaining 3 races will start at 1430 hrs to align with the Performance racing and use the same Committee boat.
As resources will be out there it would great to see the Sonatas out sailing as a class using Windward/Leeward courses (decision pending). During this Saturday racing there will be an opportunity for those members who have volunteered for mark laying duties to use their new skills.

The Dabchicks dinghy racing is continuing to grow, Saturday Social sailing is in full swing, Sunday afternoons are open to all and are proving popular, weekday sailing goes from strength to strength, and the MFOB programme has now started.
It doesn't all stop there;
DSC is in the process of organising some ILCA training for all members, and an Optimist open, news to come shortly.
Whether it be Keelboat or Dinghy racing, entry is open to everyone for:

WMYC Centenary Regatta, with racing taking place on Thursday afternoon, and Saturday afternoon followed by the party. Results for Friday will be extracted from the Friday night series.
