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!

Calling all Juniors

Calling all juniors: If you are not already involved in part of the ceremony for Annalise Murphy tomorrow we would love to see you at the East Pier Bandstand at 5.45pm to welcome Annalise and walk with her in a parade to the People’s Park for the celebrations.

Please arrive early as parking is very limited in the area.

The boy’s Laser place to represent Ireland was won by RCYC’s Johnny Durcan who is also a cadet member at NYC.
