Booking this session requires your child to have been pre registered with DSC as a Bright Nights sailing member prior to this event. Unfortunately at this time we cannot accept any further registrations.
This page is for booking the all sessions of the evening, 6.15pm – 9.15 for the helm’s only – your child must have successfully completed RYA Junior / Youth L1,2,3 & 4 to helm at the DSC BNS / RYA OnBoard & have undertaken a refresher or assessment .
Please arrive at the club dressed & ready to go sailing, as promptly as possible and 15 mins before your session starts to facilitate booking onto our safety system, allocating to a dinghy for the session and changeover from a previous session.
Helms are asked to enter the rear courtyard via the double gates, and register on arrival, and stay in the courtyard until escorted across the road by a DSC volunteer. Parents may stay and relax in either the bar area, the courtyard, or the promenade to watch the sailing.
Helms will be escorted by a nominated adult across the road to the slipway before the session and back to the rear courtyard afterwards. Helms will be given a temporary armband as a tagging system is in operation, please ensure this is surrendered before leaving the facility.
We offer 3 sessions, and appreciate the helm’s may have to arrive late or go home early. We only have a finite amount of resources to run this event – and are limited by the RYA safety ratios, these only permit us to operate with a number of participants to safety crew – if you’d like to volunteer to help out as a safety crew etc please make yourself known to a volunteer. Thank You.
DSC will endeavour to extend offer a session to all those registered and paid for the RYA OnBoard membership, the event is a book only event, please do not turn up expecting a place, it’s unfortunately 1st come 1st serve with the booking system on the website, this opens automatically every Tuesday at 7pm for reservations. We will try to accommodate further ‘non DSC member’ participants during a the season weather & resource permitting.
We cannot control the weather, adverse weather and or strong winds may deem the session to be cancelled or curtailed. Safety of our young people is paramount, therefore the DSC official / volunteer on the evening has the responsibility and authority to make this difficult decision.
Bookings either haven't opened yet, or are unfortunately full & have closed for this event.
