GIRL POWER FOR DURLEIGH SAILORS

Today at Durleigh, the Berkley sisters, Ruth and Izzie were out in a Comet Trio, being pre assessed by an RYA Instructor in practical sailing skills, in preparation for  Dinghy instructor Course. PASSED!!!.

Izzie has been in the Transitional Squad, and crewing in 29ers, which had to come to a temporary stop due to a shoulder injury.

Ruth has been match racing in the Manchester Uni sailing team, she has been crewing in a Firefly for the 1st Team, and won the ” Christy Cup “.  Brilliant!!

Ruth is now off to try for a job with Sunsail over the Summer.

Well done girls, with all your success.

We wish you all the best for the future.

1st PLACE FOR DURLEIGH SAILORS

Scott Bonner and Lynn Harland took first place at the Hartley and Comet Open Meeting, held at Sutton Bingham sailing club, near Yeovil on Sunday.

This was a hotly contested event, with a total of 35 boats from 22 different clubs, coming from as far away as Birmingham and the Solent.

This was the first time that Lynn and Scott had ever sailed together. So they did extremely well to take first place in the double handers, even beating a couple of National Champions.

Scott and Lynn were sailing in a Comet Trio.

Boats in class were Comet Trios, Comet Duos, Kestrals and Wanderers.

They were presented with glass tankards, and a bottle of wine.

NEW FORMAT FOR THE COMING SEASON

DSC now have a, SAILING COMMITTEE, this consists of :-

Richard Bonner, Commodore
Lynn Harland,    Sailing Secretary
Tom Abbott
Scott Bonner
Martin Harland
Andrew Billington

In a quest to encourage more people to participate in the racing, we have made a few alterations to the racing format.

(1)   The races have been shortened to 40 – 45 minutes

(2)   Three races. First race 11.00 am, Second race 12.30 and the third race at 2.00 pm.

(3)   We will be using new handicaps, in line with Sutton Bingham. ( Which should allow for closer racing ).  These can be viewed on the race board in the Club House.

(4)   The Ostrobogulous Series is being trialed for the 12.30 race This is a League.
3 points for competing in a race
1 point for each boat beaten, providing they are above you, or within
6 points below.

This means that the more you win the less points you pick up, giving the advantage to people lower in the League.

(5)  Buoy “B” and the bank will no longer be in use. Start and Finish will be between  buoys A and B

Any one who would like help to get into racing, please come and have a chat           with us.

Spring Series starts on March 30th

Hope to see you on the water

Lynn Harland, Sailing Secretary DSC
