8 of our members took part in the first DRAGONFLITE 95 TT event at Southport on Sat. With a large entry of 33 boats racing in 2 fleets our members acquitted themselves well finishing as follows:
- 4th Derek P
- 9th Tim L
- 12th Mick P
- 14th Chris C
- 22n Garry B
- 24th Anna Mc
- 26th Susan P
- 31st Mike B
Sunday saw a much reduced compliment of Fleetwood Boats with just 3 of us in a fleet of 28 DF 65’s raced all as one fleet which made the starts & the racing overall challenging to say the least. The wind was light & all sailors but 3 were using the A+ rigs. 8 long 2.5 lap races were completed by 3pm our results as follows.
- 2nd Derek P
- 23rd Mick P
- 27th Susan P
The A+ rigs really made the difference! & if you wish to race on the TT circuit they are WELL worth the £70 investment.
Full results on the dfracinguk site with great photography from Anna Mc
Also on Sunday there were 7 lasers racing on a separate course although I haven’t seen any results I do know that Shaun Holbeche from Fleetwood won & that they sailed 16 races!
Another corker from Tony Wilson, Cheers mate.
Reports will be popping up on Yachts and Yachting and MYA downwind. Stay tuned.
Pictures from Bob Jolly, Cheers Bob.

Good evening model yacht racing fans! Tonight we present a video of the recent A-Class Championships. It was very good, by all accounts.
There is no getting around it… This is big file and it might take a while to stream/download/watch but hopefully, its worth it… these were some Classic Fleetwood Vane A Conditions™ … One for the ages. Thanks to Bob Jolly for sending the footage in.
We’ll also be dropping another massive gallery of pictures soon (when your internet has calmed down)
Intrepid french photographer Erick Rossignol has sent in some great pictures and video from the recent Marblehead & 10R National Championships.
Massive gallery of pictures can be found here, David’s clearly chuffed with the photographs, Thanks Eric 🙂
