Dragon Force 65

493175_1100x

Welcome to the DF65 Fleet page, this is the place to find out what we are doing when, keep up to date with the racing or simply find out more about this great little yacht.

We are currently sailing on Wednesday mornings from 10-30am

From Spring through to Autumn, while the Wagalers afternoon dinghy series is taking place, DF65 racing starts at around 4.30pm every Wednesday. We usually manage to sail around 8 or 10 short sharp races every week so there is always a chance to recover from that poor start or mark rounding with the next port flyer never more than 10 minutes away.
From October to March racing takes place on Wednesday mornings from 10-00am (Racing starts at 10-30am) to about 1-00pm.
If you are interested in joining in, just turn up on one of our race days or e-mail dragon-force@ripon-sc.org.uk we are always keen to see more members taking part.
Yachts come almost ready to race and start around £230-00 including the radio control and batteries, second hand yachts can often be found for much less, if you are thinking of buying a yacht do come and talk to us first so we can make sure you don't spend more than you need to.

DF65 helms must be MYA (Model Yachting Association) members so that they have the mandatory 3rd party insurance cover.
