Update from September Series

It was amazing to see 135 junior sailors in the National Yacht Club for the the September Series, It is great to see the club so alive with our young sailors. We need lots of volunteers to help launch and recover all these boats so we invite all parents to come and help out over the next few weeks. Results can be found here http://www.dbsc.org/index.php/results

The four week series will finish on September 18th with prize giving in The National Yacht.

We will also host the End of Season Regatta on Sept 25th before we say goodbye to Summer Sailing!
