Nationals Done!

So the DF65 Nationals went of this weekend with 41 skippers taking part in the end. Lots of great racing, lots of great social, all in all a great weekend, summed up by the picture below. Read all about the racing and the results on the Results page.



So we are a couple of days out from the start gun for the 2017 DF65 Nationals and we have 46 entries ready to compete for the coveted John Wesley Trophy which has spent a couple of years on a shelf in Yorkshire. There is a good mix of abilities taking part with some first timers along with some more seasoned competitors, all of whom will no doubt have an awesome time both on and off the racecourse.  Good luck to all those competing.

Moving on from the Nationals our next TT event is taking place at Keighley over the weekend of the 14th & 15th of October. For those of you who haven’t ever visited the club up on the moors, it’s certainly well worth the effort. Details of the event, including the all important Notice of Race, are posted here.  Whilst John is away for ten days he will try and confirm your entry to the event as soon as he is able to.

Looking further ahead we have the season finale at Lincoln over bonfire weekend which promises to be another great weekends sailing and social.

As the DF Racing Class Association we took a stand at the 2017 RYA Dinghy show which was a really good way to promote our classes to the wider sailing public. It turned out that lots of people already know about the boats and we were overwhelmed by the response to our attendance at the show.  We have now secured the same stand for the 2018 RYA Dinghy Show which takes place over the weekend of 3rd & 4th March. Come and see us and get your 2018 season off to a great start.

2017 DF Racing UK Dinghy Show Stand…busy busy!

Talking of 2018 we ave some dates for the Class Championships.  The DF65 Nationals will be taking place at Gosport over the weekend of the 19th & 20th May and the DF95 Championships will take place up on the moors at Keighley over the weekend of 7th & 8th July.  Get those dates into your diaries so you don’t book anything else for those weekends…unlike me who has a wedding anniversary and a childs birthday planned for those weekends…..

There is also rumor of a DF95 Global Championship for 2018 as well….stay tuned!

The Fleetwood weekend was a mix of local competitors with an odd visitor who all had fun, Saturday wasn’t the best Fleetwood direction, but good sailing was definitely had on Sunday with the DF95’s. Results posted on the Fleetwood site – Here

See you pondside sometime soon.
