After a successful Nationals the rest of June doesn’t see us with any events, however in July there are two events based at clubs in the South of England where there are good fleets of DF65’s. The first is early July at Southsea and the second is later in the month at Eastbourne.
I’m unsure of the situation at Southsea however if you want to take part in the Eastbourne event you must be a member of the MYA.
For more details on both events please take a look at the Events page.
We are pleased to announce that at the latest MYA Council meeting held on the 7th June both the DF65 and the RG65 along with the Footy class became affiliated to the MYA. This is a big step for the DF65 class which is still seeing strong growth after a year of being on general sale and will hopefully cement the class in the structure of the MYA for the future.
With this great bit of news comes some responsibility, and that is for us, as a class, to ensure that all our UK registered CA members are also members of the MYA, either through their local club or by way of forming a club.
For more details either contact your local MYA affiliated club or take a look at the MYA website to find out where your local club is.
It has taken a couple of days to get the results and report together for the RG65 & DF65 Nationals but they are now on the results page along with a report on the event and some links to photos that were taken over the course of the weekend.
Take a trip over to the results page and have a look.
I’m sure that there will be some last minute practice going on at Weecher today in preparation for this weekend’s RG65 Nationals, the forecast looks good and the entry closed last night at a creditable 29 boats which is almost ten more than last years event.
Unfortunately I am not able to attend but good luck to all those of you that are sailing, especially those entering your first Championship event. You’ll have a blast and you will learn a lot so enjoy it!
If you are in the area and fancy a look at the racing please feel free to pop along to the venue, details of how to get there are available on the Nationals page.
Don’t forget that the entry for the 2014 RG65 National championships closes today.
If you haven’t entered check out the current entries on the Nationals page, we are up to 29, it would be great to have 30 or more.
Currently there is a crop of 8 Development RG65’s and 21 Dragonforce 65 Restricted Class yachts. If you fancy adding to these numbers and enjoying some excellent Yorkshire hospitality into the bargain then hotfoot it over to the Nationals page and get your entry in.
If the weather is anything like it was for the recent M Nationals held at the same venue then you really are in for a treat!
