We are now well into 2015 and since I took over as registrar I have registered over 150 DF65’s. As some of you will be aware my life is currently a little bit hectic and as such I am conducting registrations and issuing sail numbers in batches of ten.
This means that if you are the first of a new batch you may experience a delay of perhaps a week or so before a sail number pings into your inbox. If however you are number 10 of a batch you’ll experience some lightening quick sail number issuing!
Remember some good events this weekend at Keighley and Watermead.
Well here we are, there is a week to go until the DF65 Northern Championships which takes place on the 25th – 26th April at Weecher. A keen entry so far with more to come will make this event good fun, but the famous Yorkshire hospitality will make it great fun so get your entry in! Details on the events page.
there is also a joint DF / RG event being held at Watermead on the 25th which is the third round of this joint series, details are on the RG website for this one.
Then on the 10th May there is the Southwestern District DF/RG Event which is being held at the Woodspring club at Portishead nr Bristol. It’s a new venture for the club and deserves your support so please get your entry in early. Details are on the poster below and on our events page.
And finally we have added a Nationals 2015 page to the site, in reality it is a link to the dedicated Nationals website that the host club, Coalhouse Fort have developed. It is a great site with all the details you’ll require to enter the event, find some accommodation and keep up to speed with the preparations for the event.
Even if you haven’t yet raced your DF65 yet please do not think that you are not going to be good enough to compete. At any and all of the above events there will be plenty of friendly help and practical advice available from both newer and more experienced skippers, you may well find your boat being looked at by a National Champion and some useful advice being imparted to help you along. If you are umming and ahhing about entering an event then take our advice….just do it, you’ll have a great day out at the very least!
