Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) West Pier Starting Hut is back on station for the 2018 season following a three-month hiatus.
Dun Laoghaire Harbour did not emerge unscathed from the winter storms and neither did the starting hut on the back of the town's Pier.
The concrete walled plinth which has been supporting the West Pier Hut since DBSC moved to that location in 1968, was demolished during the first week-end of March and totally swept into the sea by the force of the great storm and blizzard.
Not one solitary concrete block was left behind. DBSC are enormously glad they didn’t leave the Hut on station last winter, as they have occasionally had to do in the past for financial reasons.
Happily, a new and improved is back on station and ready to start races for DBSC's 300–boat fleet every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in the Summer months.
As and from Tuesday the 12th June courses to be sailed will be in accordance with DBSC's Course Card 1, Tuesdays West Pier Starts 2018.
