Welcome to the home of the GBR D-ONE Class Association where you will be able to find all the latest news & chat about this exciting single hander from Devoti Sailing.

The D-One is an exhilarating and rewarding single-hander that provides close tactical racing upwind, combined with the fun of asymmetric performance.

Designed by Phil Morrison and using the best materials and technology available to provide a unique sailing experience, the Devoti-one is built using carbon foam construction in CNC moulds, giving a stiff light hull. The carbon mast, boom and bow sprit maintain quality throughout and the boat has been extensively tested by a team of top sailors to make sure it is a winner.

Upwind the D-ONE is powered by a large 11.5 sq.m. fully battened main sail that has enough power to be hiking early but easy to keep control when it gets fresher. Downwind, using the 13.2 sq.m. gennaker, the boat is stable and easily driven with plenty of power to the highly manoeuvrable and lightweight hull.

From the leading builders of the Olympic Finn, the D-ONE has become an international success and there is an exciting international regatta programme!

Conditions were testing with a fresh easterly blowing a moderate swell across Lyme Bay into Torbay. This made for entertaining launching and landing in the harbour with gusts coming from all directions and a swell coming round the sea wall.
