2019-Nov09 DBSC Annual Awards – for comments on gallery

We held our 2019 awards review celebrating the many achievements of our young, mature sailors in many races at home and abroad and to thank our trainers, helpers and volunteers who made this possible.

Richard Haydock acted as our Master of Ceremonies doing an excellent job remebering most of the sailing craft names (with the juniors all to easer to correct any errors 🙂 and with George and his crew manning the Bar and Buffet throught out the night providing excellent service as ever.

Our gallery below shows the various presentations – post us you details if you appear in an image and we will update the captions with your preferred details.

2019 3rd Nov RIB training and Laser Racing

16 young adults took to the waters today in our 3 rib boats gaining experience in driving these boats which can scoot over the water at up to 20 knots.

The final Junior Powerboat Programme session 2019 took place with a trip to Inverkeithing Harbour, North Queensferry Harbour, Hawes Pier (for ice cream!) and back to the club.

Conditions were ‘interesting’ at times! Everyone had a great time, including the instructors. HUGE thanks to Iain Tait Steve Panter Jock Stewart, Chris Brisley, Martin Davidson and Paul McInnes for their time and help – these sessions could not have happened without you!

Conditions were fair and mild for time if year…

We also saw 3-4 hours of 10+ lasers racing our courses.

Gavin Adamson Race 2017 – POSTPONED

After some discussion and consideration of the weather forecast, George, our Race Officer, in consultation with others, has decided that the race should be postponed until 27 August.

If the weather forecast materialises, the conditions for RIB launching and race management would be difficult and potentially unsafe. We have also received a number of requests and one withdrawal from potential entrants. In the circumstances, we wanted to give people sufficient advance warning to avoid unnecessary journeys and boat movements and also give the opportunity to reorganise their weekend.

Rather than lose the race from the calendar and series, we intend to run it on 27 August, when the FYCA calendar is lighter and the tides are reasonable.

Revised SIs and start times will be issued in due course.

We look forward to seeing you in August.
