The newly elected committee held their first meeting on Thursday 23rd of October 2014.

The names of the new committee are posted on the website.

The Commodore’s and the Secretary’s contact details are posted on the website for members information.

It was agreed by the committee that the DHSC Newsletter and all information regarding club activities will be posted on the website in future. Members will be notified by text of updates to the website. DHSC is now going digital, if you are not receiving notification of updates by text please contact the Secretary. This is as an effort to reduce the cost of postage to the club.

Members are requested to keep their punts monitored and bailed if they are leaving them on the pontoon for the winter. Presently some punts are full of water and are going in under the sections of the pontoon with the possibility of damaging the pontoon floats.

Dinghy Park:

Boat owners are requested to remove all sails, rudders, centre boards and rigging from their boats, bring them home and store them in a dry area. Please leave your boat in a tidy state where it will not fill with rainwater over the winter and that the tyres are pumped with air to facilitate movement of trailers.

RIB Run:

It is proposed by the committee that a RIB Run will be organised over the Christmas holiday period. Please contact Mr Edwin Fay at 086 2503895 if you are interested in taking part.
