GBR D-ONE Class Association (22)
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 GBR D-ONE class operates through the D-ONE International Association, which has a representative from each country. The committee member for Great Britain is Ben Falat
Paignton Harbour, scene of last week's more-than-exciting POSH regatta, has some very clear instructions at the entrance.
Clearly Nick Craig did not intend to follow them...
With a large percentage of the UK D-One fleet only arriving home from their Gold Cup just days earlier in the week a depleted fleet of D-One's attended their Inland Championships at Oxford Sailing Club over the weekend of the 25th/26th October. Saturday was shared with the D-Zero's and International Canoe's. The aim of the day was for short action packed racing and minimal faff and that's exactly what the race officer served up with four 35-40 minute three lap races back to back.
The 2015 D-One GBR Travellers Series is being supported by North Sails One Design Europe and Suntouched Sailboats, with the kind permission of Devoti sailing :
- they have provided a New Black Gennaker for the winner
- the winner to be decided by a race-entry based raffle drawn after the last event of the year;

The full competition rules are available on the website here: TravellersRaffle.pdf- the more races you enter the greater the chance of winning!

update: We now have some additional prizes provided by Spinlock. In support of the launch of their exciting new range of 50N PFDs this season, Spinlock will be supplying a number of WINGS as prizes for key events.
Already the choice for team BAR, the WING offers the performance sailor a fresh approach to PFD design, focusing on the speed, athleticism and high agility of the new generation of sailors in a compact minimalist design. https://www.spinlock.co.uk/en/categories/wing-and-foil-pfds
For each regatta in the traveller series we have a Spinlock "Wing" PFD to give away. Spinlock will also be supporting us at this years National champs with some prizes. A fitting
prize to have "Wings" for those who sail the boat with wings!
