Members Sailing for 2018

The club’s dinghy fleet of  9 Toppers, a Wayfarer and RS Vision are stored in Coronation Park for easy access to the higher slip.  All are free for members to use, we just ask that you contact us to be added to the approved user list.  We encourage juniors to tae them out too, but with safety boat cover.

The Tuesday evening clubs sails started in April, look our for dates on the club email/Calender.  If you'd like to sail with us or drive safety boat contact Paul Talbot on the club email: post@dartmouthyachtclub.co.uk.
 There's an entusiatic team involved with dinghy sailing but are always looking for volunteers to help with a range of things from maintenance, co-ordination or just a pair of hands,  If you'd like to be involved please contact us!
As ever, all club organised dinghy sessions will have safety boat cover and we will continue  to offer all training at cost to our members, making it as affordable as possible.  All dinghy activities are published via club emails and listed on the DYC website’s calendar so please keep a look out, as training course fill very quickly.

Stop Press:

Our application for Sport England Funding to support the further development of both the Junior and Senior dinghy sailing squads was successful. A brand new Ribeye RIB safety boat, can bee seen out on the river. The grant money  allowed us to double our Junior training capacity and buy a  dinghy road trailer to get our more advanced Juniors competing around the region....  do look out and support them!
