Seasons Greetings, Thank You & Welcome!

Firstly and a little belatedly, Seasons greetings to you all from the DF UK squad. We hope you can remember what day it is and we assume that you’re nearly finished with the cheeseboard! A few of you went yachting up at Fleetwood on Tuesday, it looked like a tactical day.

Secondly, a “yuge” thank you to our registrar Wayne Stobbs who, after getting involved early on to help out has decided to step down from his role with the DF UK Class Association. Wayne has been a great asset to the Class Association and brought a wealth of IT knowledge with him which helped a great deal in finding ways to do things as the Association has grown. Wayne will still be involved a little but needs to focus on a few things outside of the radio sailing world. Thank you Wayne, we wouldn’t be where we are now without your input.

And finally, a big warm DF “Welcome” to our newly co-opted registrar Jen Hand who has stepped up to take on the job of registrar for the two DF Classes. Jen has recently completed a stint as the MYA secretary and brings with her a lifetime of organisational skills which will help the UK DF Class Association continue to move forward now and in the future. Jen is standing for election at the upcoming AGM so be sure to vote her in!

Have a good New Year wherever you are, make sure you continue to stay safe and we’ll hopefully see you at the fist DF event in March at Gosport.

AGM Time Once Again

It’s that time of year once again where we need to inform you of the upcoming DF Racing UK AGM. The 2022 AGM will work to a timetable that concludes on the 12th February 2022.

Full details of how the schedule will play out are available by clicking here or clicking the AGM 2022 link on the menu above.

2022 Sailing Calendar plus Twixmas

A little later than everywhere else and I’ve found time to publish the 2022 DF Racing TT Calendar. It appears on the Events page and has all the dates in list format so you can plan your DF racing year.

In other news don’t forget the two day Twixmas regatta up at Fleetwood over the Christmas period. Come and race your DF95 on the 28th December, have a few beers at The Mount, stay at The New Boston and race your IOM on the 29th. sounds like a plan.

The New Boston is technically not open but if we can find six rooms worth of people they have said that they may well open especially for us on the 28th. If you fancy it then please get in touch and we’ll see what can be sorted.
