We have been in existence for three years and in that time our fleet has grown from 9 to 30+ skippers of varying skills from very competent to complete novice; all are welcome. If you have any questions or want to come and join us, either head down on one of the clubs night (see calendar) or have a word with our Class Captains:

Skippers should acquire registered sail numbers which must be displayed on the mainsail on the original sails or on both jib and mainsails, according to the DF 65 rules, on replacement sail sets. 

New skippers will be allowed to race on provision that sail numbers are obtained a.s.a.p.

 Sail numbers are obtained from the DF Class Association by registering (for free) click here

We will split the Wednesday events into three seven week periods and award first and second prizes with two awards based on the whole season. The Saturday events will be a separate series.

 Winners will be determined by using a skipper’s best scores for fifty per cent of the total number of races in the award period. This ensures that skippers who join part way through will have an opportunity to win and also will not penalize skippers who miss some sessions for whatever reason.

Guest skippers are very welcome but each guest will be limited to 3 events, according to club rules. To continue racing the guest should join the club.

Races will run according to the SSI rules of the Model Yacht Association.
