A note from Lincoln RSC

We’ve had a note from the Lincoln club who are the hosts of the next rounds of the DF racing 2023 TT series. The event is in a couple of weeks and if you are there then you need to read the post and if you aren’t yet there then you need to hurry up and get your entry in.!

DF65 and DF95 Skippers

The next rounds of the DF TT are due to take place at Lincoln Radio Sailing Club on 1st and 2nd April 2023.

As at today, we have 20 spaces left for the DF65 on the Saturday and only 8 left for the DF95 on the Sunday. 

So if you want to join us head off to the MYA events calendar and get your entry in.

This is a message from Mr Derek Priestley the MYA President:

Saturday Evening Banquet                                                                                                        

Micky Boy Chamberlin has arranged for everyone to meet for dinner in the (heated) Marquee at the Railway Inn, Station Road, Thorpe-on-the Hill, Lincoln LN6 9BS on the Saturday evening of the Lincoln TT weekend.

After dinner, we will be presenting all the GBR skippers who will be racing in the DF Global Championship at Fleetwood in May, with an MYA shirt to wear at the event opening ceremony.
We hope that all 26 GBR skippers for the Globals will attend this TT event and that all people present at the TT event will come to dinner and wish them well.

Many thanks.

Derek Priestley 


As meals have to be pre-ordered with The Railway, if you haven’t got your order in and wish to join us, please contact Jen Hand email jen.hand@outlook.com before 24th March 2023 for a copy of the menu.

DF95’s done

A better day for the skippers that turned out with breeze all day in varying degrees from various directions. Some course resetting and some general recalls and we’ve managed 5 complete races.

Thanks again to all involved and we’ll get a full weekend report out over the next few days.

Results below, congrats to all of the 54 skippers who braved the chilly conditions at West Lancs.

65 TT done and dusted

So, a slow day today, a test for skippers and even more so for the race team. Too many course changes and a few too many general recalls along with the fickle conditions led to a race day with only four races.

These things happen however and most skippers had a good day on the water. Thanks to all the helpers and especially PRO Peter Baldwin who has dealt with everything that was thrown at him today.

Results below and 95’s tomorrow with a forecast of a little more wind….hopefully. Congratulations to everyone who got involved

Aaand we are off….sort of

So we are all ready to go at West Lancs YC for the first round of the 2023 TT series. It seems that we might be lacking a vital ingredient however…..the wind wasn’t booked so we are all stood around waiting for it to arrive. More news later.

Southport Incoming

This weekend sees the first round of the 2023 DF Racing TT series at West Lancs YC. We have a bumper entry for both days with 50 plus entries for both days. It seems that the weather gods might keep us dry but it doesn’t look too breezy and I’d advise a comfy chair and a good book.

Practice on Friday afternoon for anyone that’s around followed by a couple of quiet pints somewhere.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Lincoln TT Entry Open

We always enjoy a trip to the Lincoln Club, they always go that extra mile to make us feel welcome and we love the venue as much as the people who organise the racing. If you’ve never been to Lincoln RSC before then it’s well worth a trip out. The sailing water is great, the hospitality is superb and the racing is sure to be as close as ever. 65’s on Saturday 1st April (no joke) and 95’s on the 2nd April. Entry details are on the event page, click here to take a look.
