Event Details

Come and celebrate the clubs 50th Anniversary Year!

As is customary at DSC, exceptional food form the ‘Grumpy Old Gits’ caterers, good company, and the very best of craic on the night.

So imagine your on a dream cruise,  the ship has run aground on ‘Wee Scotsman’s rock’ just off the harbour entrance as its passed through Donaghadee sound,  the captain has given the command to abandon ship – ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, please make your way to your Muster Stations immediately, abandon ship!’ You haven’t got time to change, so must hastily don the life-raft in whatever attire you’re currently wearing now! The survivors stumble upon the sailing club for shelter 😉 and something to calm their nerves after their ordeal!

Fancy dress is mandatory at the ‘Shipwrecked Ball’, prizes will be awarded for the best and perhaps worst costumes.

Very limited numbers available, as we respect the wishes of the members, to keep this event small & and in keeping with the current crisis, so only 60 spaces! This is a members or invited guests only event.

The Members lounge will be setup to meet with the current best practise & guidance, where possible socially distanced, room ventilation  switched on,  windows open for fresh air, face coverings should be worn as required and moving around the premises, hand sanitiser  will be provided, DSC would like to thank you for your compliance during these challenging times.

Please do not attend if you or any member of your household is feeling unwell.
