ISA Training Centre Awards 2014:
DHSC was represented at the awards in the Royal College of Surgeons Building on the 6th of March 2015 by the Commodore Edwin Fay, Vice Commodore and ISA Training Centre Principal Austin Flynn and Junior Sailing Organiser Sandra Wynne. The overall award was won by Mayo Sailing Club, so congratulations to them. More importantly for DHSC is that out of 80 ISA Training Centres in Ireland Dungarvan is ranked in the top four training centres. This remarkable achievement is down to the dedication and hard work of Ms Sandra Wynne and her team of instructors, course assistants and course participants, so well done and thanks to all and keep up the good work.
Talk on Boat Engine Maintenance:
There was a good turn out for the talk by Kevin Higgins from Marine Motors on Friday the 6th of March. Kevin was on his feet for an hour and a half and he imparted a lot of his hard gained experience to the attendance in this time with a good question and answer session at the end. If you weren’t there you missed a good night. Many thanks to Kevin for giving his time to the club.
A meeting of boat skippers and crews will be held in the clubhouse on Friday the 13th March at 8pm. The purpose of this meeting is to get feedback from members on a sailing/racing programme for 2015. So attend on the night if you want to have an input.
The next race in the Winter League will be held this Sunday the 15th of March with the First Gun at 1200hrs. The last two outings had to be cancelled due to poor weather conditions so hopefully sailors will get on the water on Sunday.
St Patricks Day:
The clubhouse will be open after the local parade from 4pm. This will be good occasion for members and friends to get together after the winter, hope to see you all there.
