It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Bruce Lyster who passed away on May 2nd. Bruce was a longstanding member and supporter of DBSC and he had a very successful racing career winning many DBSC trophies over the years. Bruce was particularly successful at the helm of his half tonner Swuzzlebubble, and his Sigma 38 Errislannan. Bruce played a central role in the DBSC celebrations to mark its centenary in 1984 as chairman of the DBSC Centenary Regatta committee. Bruce was also Commodore of the RStGYC from 1995 to 1998 and shared his knowledge and love of sailing through his involvement with Sail Training Ireland. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Gillian and his family at this sad time.
