AIB DBSC U30's & Women on the Water Series


DBSC want to promote younger Keelboat sailing teams, in order to do this, we are giving a discount of 25% off the normal entry fee. Teams consisting entirely of sailors who are 30 or under on the 1st of April 2023 can enter and will receive a 25% discount on normal fees. All AIB DBSC Green Fleet, Blue Fleet and Red Fleet entries are included in this initiative. 

Commodore Ed Totterdell feels that this will appeal particularly to classes like the SB20s, and Sportboat class but also knows of some interest in other keelboat classes. 'We have formed a special sub-committee of younger sailors to look at ways to make this season exciting and fun for members aged 30 and under. They are planning some great events for the 2023 season'.

It would be great to see a big turnout of young keelboat sailors, so get your team together and enjoy the craic and competition for 2023!

DBSC are delighted to announce the introduction of a new series supporting the push to increase female participation in our sport.

DBSC will run normal Tuesday night racing but with an added difference!
In addition to competing in the normal Tuesday Evening series boats helmed by a female and with a minimum female compliment of 50% (we'd love to see 100%) can enter the Women on the Water series at no additional charge. 
In order to deliver competitive racing with handicaps across different classes the following classes are eligible to enter this new series. SB20, FF15, Sports boat, Ruffian 23 and B211. There will be series prizes for the two top performers in the series.

To make this an exciting, competitive and fun racing series we would love to see as many entrants as possible so get your team together, tell your friends and sign up!  
All WOW boats will be recorded in both the standard Tuesday Series and the new WOW Series
If your boat is already entered for 2023 you can email and ask that your entry to this series is noted. 

Yours in Sailing,

Ed Totterdell
