DBSC held its annual prize giving on Saturday 25 February.
After an initial drink and some canapés to match, the event got underway with a speech by vice-commodore John Sim. John summarised the events of 2011, which included the successful launch of a Novice series, and of two races in the Wednesday summer series.
Looking forward to the 2012 season John mentioned the new Jubilee Series – an open event with two races a night from 6 to 8 June.
Ronnie Millar (Rear Commodore Sailing) announced the dinghy winners. Ian Renilson led the way in terms of prizes in the asymmetric class, with 4 trophy wins and two second places. Stewart Moss picked up 3 trophies in the handicap class.
In the keel boat section David Williams in Brief Encounter dominated picking up 7 of the 11 trophies available – a larger bookshelf will be required in their house.
The prize for best junior went to Jamie LeGood, and that for most races sailed (the famous Dalgety Bay paddle) went to John Hilton.
The annual Ocean Youth Trust prize for the junior member who has shown outstanding commitment in racing, training and off water activities – went to Emily McCready.
The final prize of the night was for David Williams…but this time for the infamous Bent Propellor Award (awarded for best disaster) due to some excessive mooring dragging in the early season gales.
The evening finished with music, dancing and the odd celebration or two from the many winners at the event.
