2022 Sailing Calendar plus Twixmas

A little later than everywhere else and I’ve found time to publish the 2022 DF Racing TT Calendar. It appears on the Events page and has all the dates in list format so you can plan your DF racing year.

In other news don’t forget the two day Twixmas regatta up at Fleetwood over the Christmas period. Come and race your DF95 on the 28th December, have a few beers at The Mount, stay at The New Boston and race your IOM on the 29th. sounds like a plan.

The New Boston is technically not open but if we can find six rooms worth of people they have said that they may well open especially for us on the 28th. If you fancy it then please get in touch and we’ll see what can be sorted.

West Lancs report

West Lancs YC, a lovely spot

Well I’d written it this morning, it took nearly an hour and then it’s gotten lost somehow. I hate technology sometimes and I’ve written a much much shorter report which is pretty crap compared to my usual work. Apologies for it but I need to crack on with real life now. Anyhow there’s some words and some pictures, check them out by clicking here.

Southport DF95 Sunday

Well, another day at Southport and another great day of racing for the 37 skippers. National champion Craig Richards took the win from a hungover Nigel Brown who had a storming day on the water. Tushy came in third.

Results below and full report to follow when I get a minute early week.

Southport is always fun!

True to form Southport and West Lancs YC have delivered us an awesome day. Varied breeze, corse changes aplenty and many great races have brought us to the end of the day. 35 skippers managed 9 races in some testing conditions for both skippers and race team.

Derek won the day with Buzz second and fleet newcomer Nick Martin in third.

Full results below.

Friday Night Feast @ West Lancs

We’ve had an email from Alan @ West Lancs YC who tells us that there is a bit of a do happening at the club on Friday evening from 1830 onwards. It’s an American evening where there will be cold beer, brisket and pumpkin pie on offer. No need to book, just turn up and get involved if you fancy it.

West Lancs Incoming

Just a few days now before we head to West Lancs YC for the final two rounds of the DF Racing UK 2021 TT Series. Whilst Tushy is assured of the top spot there are a number of other spots that are still very much up for grabs. There are also a few new DF skippers heading to the event and we look forward to seeing them on the startline.

Still time to get your entry in and enjoy the great racing and superb social that the DF fleet is known for. Sign up, get involved, have fun!

DF 95 Eastbourne TT sorted

So 32 skippers pitched up this morning for a light wind day of racing at the Eastbourne club with DF95’s being the boat of choice today.

Results above and congratulations to race team and skippers alike. Everyone had fun and we are all on our way home now.

Full report to follow early next week after an 7 hour trek home and some sleep.

Eastbourne 65 TT in the bag

It was a tough day at the office for both race team and skippers. Both did great work in challenging conditions. Light breeze filled and allowed us 22 races. Tush first by some margin. Ken and Snackers separated by two point in second and third with Wayne ‘I can see France from here’ Stobbs some way back in fourth. Highlight of the day was Jim la Roche winning his first DF race, swiftly followed by another win. Great job Jim. Thanks to Jez and his race team, to get so many races in conditions like we had was excellent, well done.

95’s tomorrow, 10am kick off. Drink and food now….in that order.
