Friday Bright Nights Sailing (Now RYA Onboard)

Registration now open for DSC Members!

DSC plans to resurrect the Friday Bright Nights Sailing programme again at the beginning of August! 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.

We’ll need lots of help to make this happen for our young people’s benefit – so Mums and Dads etc we’ll need your help as volunteers to make the events run smoothly! No previous experience will be needed other than what your experts in already – ‘Kid’s’, anything else we’ll show you what’s needed, and help where required.

We currently anticipate that we’ll have an online registering system in place this week, and will be using a similar online booking system as 2019 to book your place to come sailing on a Friday evening – provisionally 3 sessions, running between 7pm and 9.30pm. Probably significant reductions in numbers attending during and going afloat during a session, we’ll do our best to offer a fun session in true DSC style.

The jury’s still out about whether or not we can accommodate a BBQ , or admission to the clubhouse by parents whilst the sailors are out on the water, we’ve made some improvements to the outside courtyard area though!

Please keep an eye here and on the Donaghadee Sailing Club Facebook pages for updates….

Our ‘Online’ registration is now open for DSC members, we plan to open up to new participants after our initial few weeks – perhaps extending the season on Saturday and Sundays into September.
