There are a few events in the offing over the next few weeks, the first is the ND Summer Series taking place on the 4th May at Fleetwood, the second is the DF65 / RG65 Open event at Watermead which also forms part of the MD series and takes place on the 18th May. Both would be worth a visit and more details can be found by taking a trip over to the events page.
Please see the note below from the Huntingdon Club, hopefully they will be back up and running before too long.
“Due to the severe flooding we had in the first 3 months of this year we will have to postpone the RG65 event next Sunday the 27th April. We have only just regained access to the lake and have to make repairs to the launch area before we can host events. Keep an eye on this web site for the date of the rescheduled event.”
We have had an email from the guys at Coalhouse Fort MYC down in Essex who have informed us that as well as Sunday DF65 racing they will start sailing and racing on Thursday afternoon and evening. Afternoon sessions are from 1300 and evening sessions (for those of us that have to work!) commence at 1730 until either the light goes or everyone needs a pint!
For more details of the programme take a look at Coalhouse Fort’s Website, it can be accessed through the clubs page and is under the Eastern District section.
The DF65UKCA website was launched a little over a month ago with membership of the CA being offered a few weeks later to those on the register who showed as DF65 owners. During the latter part of this week the number of members of the DF65UKCA hit 100 which is great news for the class. If you are a DF65 owner who has a sail number but hasn’t yet registered please use the form on the membership page to become a member.
During next week we will be in a position to send back the completed MYA affiliation document with supporting information which will see the DF65 Class become affiliated to the MYA. This process isn’t immediate as the application needs to be ratified by the MYA council when they next sit which is on the 7th of June, but soon after that date we should become an MYA affiliated class.
As a registered owner of a DF65 we, as the DF65UKCA, would encourage you to become a member of the MYA which is the UK authority for all types of model yacht racing.
You’ll receive a short newsletter during May with more details about the MYA as well as up to date DF65 news.
In the meantime “Happy Dragoning!”
