The AIB DBSC 2021 Summer Sailing Season annual prizegiving will be held this year in the National Maritime Museum on Friday, November 12th at 19.00hrs
It’s a move away from the traditional club based event. Due to COVID, it follows on from the fact that DBSC was unable to hold its annual prize-giving last November. Three separate events were held in the waterfront clubs in June/July this year instead.
DBSC has been celebrating the wrap up of its 2021 season with a report by Commodore Ann Kirwan here
After a three-week race training programme during May and early June with great participation, the full racing programme started on June 8th which was six weeks earlier than last season, a bonus considering the difficult and uncertain circumstances. The club enjoyed great weather with only one day lost to strong winds – Saturday 7th August and only two Thursdays and one Wednesday lost to very light airs.
DBSC held 639 races over the season with 138 dinghy races on Tuesday and Saturdays, 17 Water Wag Races on Wednesdays and 445 keelboat races on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
