Dragon Force 65
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.
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 to about 1-00pm.
If you are interested in joining in, just turn up on one of our race days or e-mail email@example.com 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.
RSC DF65 Owners are currently considering adding the option of using the A+ rig to their yachts, this will we hope allow us to continue to race even when the fickle RSC winds are at their lightest
Winter sailing times:
Please note that with effect from Wednesday 15th November DF65 racing will now start from 10-00am (racing starts at 10-30am)
The plan will be to sail a few races, stop for a coffee/chat and then continue racing up to around 1-30pm (weather dependant)
The traffic lights are being replaced with an e-mail - no email then we will be racing.
If the conditions look too poor for an enjoyable mornings racing we will circulate an e-mail to all of the active helms to let them know what we plan to do.
We return to Wednesday late afternoon racing on Wednesday 4th April 2017
