DF65 Nationals @ Eastbourne a few years back

Morning, lots going on in my world currently so I’ve missed a couple of event announcements, The NoR for the Keighley TT event in a couple of weeks has been posted, lots of entries already but still plenty of space for those wanting to go.

There are still places available for the DF95 Nationals, entry is now open to all comers.

The NoR for the DF65 Nationals at Eastbourne has been published and entries are coming in nicely.

We’ve also had a smoke signal from Fleetwood about the 2023 DF95 Global Regatta and we are pleased to announce the publication of the provisional NoR for this event. Plenty of detail on the how, where, what and when of the event. Click here to take a look at the NoR

Last week of UK only entries for DF95 Nationals

Well it seems that 60 ish UK skippers have answered the call to enter the 2022 DF95 Nationals at the end of July, this leaves 23 places still available for the event. If you are a UK skipper and you want a spot at the Nationals this year then please get yourself over to the event page where you can find a link to the entry.

As of 1st May the entry will open to non UK skippers and I should think that this will fill the event to almost capacity quite soon after. So, last call UK skippers. If you miss out, don’t say you weren’t told about it!

Lincoln DF TT Report

I’ve had a minute or 90 to sort out all the things that went on over the weekend at Lincoln RSC. If you fancy a read then head over to the Results 22 page and take a look. Maybe get yourself a warm cup of hot brown first as the report will make you cold! Overall TT results are also posted.

Lincoln DF65 results

An interesting day at Scotland Farm no wind, some wind, no wind, snow, some wind just about sums it up I think.

Buzz Coleman took the win from Dave Potter and Peter Baldwin. Tushy could only manage fourth with Dave Adams in fifth, Tim Long sixth and a hard charging Jim La Roche in seventh.

No full results as they are not printed yet but we’ll load them when we get them.

Pub now, DF95 tomorrow.

Lincoln ready to go

We’ve just finished the RG65 TT event here at Lincoln and we’ve got the seeding heats sorted for tomorrows DF65 racing. I’d love to share a picture of the heat board, however due to some monumentally poor internet it won’t let me post any pictures at all.

Anyhow, be assured that the course looks good, the rescue boat works well and the club are raring to go.

See you tomorrow skippers.

From the Race Officer

We’ve had a mail from Race Officer John Tushingham this morning with an update regarding the qualification process for the 2023 Global Championship @ Fleetwood.

It offers clarification on the boat limits for our one day TT events as well as offering some solace for those who didn’t enter Gosport but want to have a stab at qualifying.
