50 Years of Discovery Sailing Project


Belatedly due to Covid, we are creating a book to enjoy alongside the 50th (and a bit!) anniversary celebrations later this year! This is going to include the history of the project and photos and stories from our 50 years.

We’d love it if you could send in DSP photos to help us create the book. These could be anything from 50 years ago to current! Please include a little bit of context for the photos, particularly rough dates, so we can organise them chronologically. For example, Thermo, Tall Ships 2010.

We look forward to seeing all the photos and stories! And don’t forget it doesn’t just have to be photos onboard, events are great too, anything DSP related will be very much appreciated!

Please send to: vikki.biggs@dsp.uk.com

2022 Reunion Date

The AGM Reunion is postponed until 1st – 3rd April and will take place at the Docks as usual.
This also allows the opportunity for further training courses to be run as well.

Welcome to Lis, our new Project Organiser!

Lis Gray has recently joined Discovery Sailing Project as Project Organiser. Here is a statement from her introducing herself.

Having been in post for a few weeks now, I am already feeling very warmly welcomed by many members of the Project. Thanks to several keen volunteers and Pete the Boatswain, I am beginning to get a working knowledge of the Discovery Fleet. I sense I have a big pair of wellies to fill and I really appreciate the handover support Andy has given.  I am delighted to be part of the DSP family and already love the whole ethos of the Project.

In the winter months I’m keen to learn how things work and I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can between now and the start of the sailing season.

Here’s hoping that in 2021 we can create memorable sailing adventures for everyone.
