IMG 7645The D-One fleet enjoyed a fantastic European Championship at Camp Jestrabi, Lake Lipno in the Czech Republic.  11 Czech boats were joined by good numbers of Hungarian, Austrian and British boats to make a strong 25-boat fleet.

Congratulations to Tomai Balazs (HUN119) on the win, closely followed by Petr Fiala (CZE203) and Tamas Szamody (HUN10).

The last day started with a tie-break for 2nd, 3rd and 4th, so commiserations to Humphrey Carter (GBR309) who just missed the podium.

An entirely appropriate image of the results shown right, but the full results are also at D-One European Championships Results . Camp Jestrabi took some excellent photos which have been posted on Facebook and are now on this website as well at http://www.d-oneassociation.org/gallery/photo-galleries

 MG 0015The ITA D-One fleet made visitors from GBR and HUN very welcome indeed to beautiful Alassio in mid-May. 

Tommaso Buzzi, our new ITA class secretary has posted a gallery of fantastic photographs available on this website at ITA National Championships 2016

Full report to follow, but congratulations to Mario Rabbo (ITA 135) on a dominant performance and championship win. Second place was Tamas Szamody (HUN 10), third Alesssandro Novi (ITA 101) and fourth Giles Chipperfield (GBR411).  MG 0164

Alassio lived up to all its reputations: practice day was gloriously sunny with 25kts from the South West and huge rolling waves. 16.0kts achieved on the D-One GPS! Then we had rain and 5kts from the North East, followed by a day of overcast light Easterlies. But then we finished with the most perfect of all sailing days : baking sun, force 3, tight racing. Sailing simply does not get better than this day.

Many thanks to an excellent race team from CNAM Alassio and to all our friends in the class who made the journey. We will all be back.

 

 

The D-One fleet turned out at Farmoor Reservoir over the 2nd and 3rd of April for their first regatta of the 2016 Travellers Series.  Racing started on Saturday into a gusty force-4 with huge shifts across the reservoir.  Terry Brooks, Simon Hawkes and Tyler Harmsworth made the early running with Simon pulling clear on a fortuitous downwind gust unfelt by the others.  Rust was being washed off by a few of the fleet as the gusty conditions took a toll. 

2016 is building up to be a fantastic year of D-One sailing.  We have some great regattas lined up for you in some of the D-One's favourite locations and also some exciting new events.

IMG 0009This year the European Championships will once again be hosted by the Czechs on Lake Lipno at Yacht Club Jestrabi.  It really is a fantastic base for sailng event.  The club has a relaxed atmosphere with camping or motorhome facitilities right next to the launching beach with parking for cars and trailers also.  The site has cabins available to hire with a small cafe and pub or there is a very reasonably priced hotel across the road.  The race course is not far from the launch which means only a short time after you cross the finish line you can be relaxing with a beer and forget about that terrible start or vica versa you can be relaxing with a nice beer with only short distance to get out to the race course to make that terrible start (I think that is the normal Czech tradition)!  A full social will be organised at the club with often a local brewary donating a keg of beer in the evening.  The  event will take place from 16th June to 19th June with training races organised on the thursday.  NOR and registration is available here: http://www.camplipno.com/d-one-european-championship-2016 

Third race for the “Tour de Australis” series was held in conjunction with ACT Dinghy Championships held on 14/15th November at the Canberra Yacht Club..
