So we took a trip to Eastbourne a couple of weekends back, we sat by a very nice pond and chatted to some very nice people and concluded the DF racing TT series for 2018. Saturday we sailed DF95’s and I placed a very creditable 3rd out of the 36 skippers. Sunday saw me struggle to set a new (much less sinky) DF65 up and I finished 11th out of the 30 skippers. This gave me a solid 6th place in the overall TT standings for 2018.

We now turn our attention to the upcoming DF95 Global event in Dallas. We are flying out later this week and are very much looking forward to meting lots of international DF95 skippers and racing at Lake Ray Hubbard. It is sure to be a blast!
With this in mind, and the fact that it is also half term for Phoebe we have taken the decision that we will not be shipping any new orders until we return from Texas which will be week commencing the 12th November. This will allow us to concentrate on clearing our current orders and getting our gear all sorted and packed, ready for flying out on Friday.
If you just can’t wait to get your hands on some of our goodies then the guys at RC Yachts will have our full range of DF sails, rig bags and patches in stock. The guys at Happy Yachting in Sweden will also have our DF65 rig bags in stock and I’m hoping the Dragon Sailing North America will have our DF65 and DF95 sticker sets back in stock before the end of this week.
If, however you fancy something a little more bespoke then you can place an order with the shop but remember it won’t get looked at until we return on the 12th November.
That’s us signing out for the time being, however we’ll be sure to update you on how we are getting along.
