So we are once again beginning the prep for the final round of the UK DF Racing TT Series which looks like a 5th or 6th place finish for me in the overall standings unless I put some really good sailing together. It’ll do for me though and I’ll head to the next event ready for some more great racing.
That next event is around 5000 miles away over in Naples Florida, and our journey to get there starts Monday with a trip to Manchester to see a good friend for a few beers, followed by a flight out to Orlando on Tuesday morning. I have 24 hours in Orlando with no plans whatsoever, so if anyone has some good ideas as to what I can do just let me know!
US Distributor Chuck flies in Wednesday and we will then begin Tim & Chucks epic roadtrip, probably in some sort of comedy vehicle, to Naples.
Practice Thursday followed by three days of tough competition against the USA’s finest DF95 skippers. Roadtrip back to Orlando on Monday and arrive back in the UK on Tuesday morning.
Let the boat prep commence!
It will be a blast I’m sure, but this does mean that as of close of business tomorrow, Thursday 2nd November, there will be no production taking place until probably Wednesday the 15th November. The shop will be open as usual but no orders will be fulfilled until our return.
If however you need some of our goodies in a hurry then please head over to the RC Yachts shop who are fully stocked with nearly all of what we have to offer.
We will be checking our email whilst we are on our travels so if you need to get hold of us you can do.
Again, we hope to head off with all our orders completed, something we should achieve this afternoon or by mid morning tomorrow. If you need anything between now and then, just ping us an order through and we’ll do our best to get it fulfilled before we leave.
In the meantime, here are some of the sails on their way to customers around the globe.
