Social

DSC hosts a wide variety of social events for our Members all year round. There is something for all ages – live music, quizzes, talks, BBQ’s and much more.

Check out our Club Calendar to see what’s on!

We run an active social calendar for all our members, young to not so young.

Our Junior members are welcome to join in to most events and are allowed to remain in the bar area until 10pm (with a parent/responsible adult). After this, the balcony room is available for them, where there is a TV, music and a Wii with a selection of games.

DSC Bar

The Club bar is open to coincide with summer sailing on Wednesday and Friday nights and on Sunday afternoons/evenings. Shorter opening hours apply during the winter period:

Volunteer @ The DSC bar

As with the rest of the Club, the bar is manned by volunteers who do bar duty once a month. It is a great way of meeting and getting to know other members and not very onerous, so why not give it a try and give your Club a helping hand?

You will be on duty with an experienced person who will teach you the ropes. Discuss it with the bar manager, Paul (07546 291750) or anyone who does the bar to find out more.

The social committee is always looking for new ideas and suggestions of events from our members.
