Event Type

DSC plans to resurrect the Friday Bright Nights Sailing programme which has been re-branded by the RYA and is now called ‘On Board’.  Hopefully starting on Friday 6th August, and finishing on the 27th August – obviously if the current restrictions don’t change between now and the end of the month.

We’re working hard in the background to come up with a plan that will give as many young people the opportunity to get on the water, stay safe and stay within the current Covid guidelines, whilst the mums & dads stay safe on the shore. Our biggest issue is helpers – so we’re asking the Mums and Dads!

We’re provisionally planning to try and run 3 consecutive sessions on a Friday evening, weather and other circumstances permitting.

This  is to register yourself or partner as an adult volunteer to enable DSC to run the ‘OnBoard’ event happening throughout August.

We’ll have all sorts of roles to fill, escort children across the busy, road, help out on a safety boat, check the tally board as the children get on or off the water, or help put the boats away afterwards.

We’ll have a list of volunteer roles that you can put your name against prior to the start of the event. No previous experience is necessary, we’ll be happy to show what’s needed and provide relevant training and assistance – don’t worry we’ll look after all the awkward bits with suitably trained and qualified people. It’s a great way to see and meet people!

Registering for Friday nights ‘OnBoard’ sailing events as a volunteer, requires that you or your child are a member of Donaghadee Sailing Club.

A special ‘OnBoard’ deal is available with a pro rata monthly direct debit option for previous 2019 season  junior members. Please contact us if you would like to explore this option.
