Having posted yesterday asking for your winter series listings we received a mail from the guys down at Coalhouse Fort who are running a four date winter series of open meetings for the DF class. Details are available on the events page. As I mentioned yesterday if your club is running a winter series or oopen event then please let us have the details and we’ll ping it up online for you.
Nothing much to report at this time other than a few bits of admin on the site. Windermere MYC have been unable to sail at their usual venue due to some refurbishment work and members have been sailing at Furness MBC who sail DF65’s as well as IOM’s when the water is deep enough. Their details are on the Clubs page.
Following on from last years excellent winter series the hardy souls up at West Lancs YC in Southport are again running a post Christmas Winter series. It starts on the 4th of January and the water is splendid, the clubhouse is superb (it even has a bar) and there is usually a great meal deal to be had as well. Dates are on the events page.
The Wykeham club near Scarborough are holding a Saturday series for DF65’s which is proving popular too. Details are on their facebook page which can be accessed through the clubs page.
If your club is holding a winter series and you’d like to get it some publicity then drop us the details and we’ll post it up on the events page for you. Remember that the class is a great starting point for new radio sailing skippers, the more info there is for them to look at the more chance there is that your club will attract new members, so don’t be shy, get your event details over to us!
Talking of events we are in the latter stages of putting together our 2015 National sailing calendar which will form the basis of a National Ranking for DF65 skippers. Confirmed events so far are Keighley, Woodspring, Lincoln and Coalhouse Fort.
If your club would like to hold an event please get in touch and we’ll do all we can to help you out.
This weekend sees the final round of the Midlands RG65 Championship which is being held at Bournville MYC in Birmingham. For more details on how to enter and for the NoR, please check out the Events page.
