  8. I prefer to race rather than talking about it!! BUT for years I've said "Hold your course" to Starbord shouts to re assure the stbd boat that I've seen them & that I know ther're there AND that I intend to avoid them!! Now, back to racing for me!!
  9. 3 day regatta just announced in Campione Lake Garda for next April. For full details check out the DF 95 Facebook page. Spring sunshine on Lago Di Garda.

    They are indeed John Lewis designs & were a from a group of 10 "one design" boats privately funded for the MYSA Kensington. They were all built by Ken Jones of Birkenhead. ( Graham Elliott's Grandad) & as Brad G has said earlier they were used for a race between yachting journalists, held on the round pond as an exercise to promote our sport to a wider audience. Good luck with your restoration.
  11. David, I was assuming that all who have paid want their place!! Of those who haven't paid some, may not after all, want to come. It is they who may now want to withdraw & allow some one who DOES want to come have their place.
  12. 77 are now entered for this years Nationals at Fleetwood with around 40 confirmed as paid. If you want to secure your place you MUST pay by 31st March. The waiting list is building! But............... if you've decided that you don't want your place..... now is the time to give it up for someone else.
  13. We're now up to 64 Entries but only about 20 have paid! If you want to secure your place before the 84 limit is reached PAY YOUR ENTRY FEE please. Thankyou Derek Priestley
  14. 35 entries have already been received for this years Nationals at "Sunny Fleetwood" in August! Thanks to all those for your support. PLEASE REMEMBER to pay!! any entries not paid by 31st March will be removed from the list when the entry is opened to overseas competitors. We at Fleetwood look forward to welcoming you to what we hope will be a great sporting & partying weekend. Thanks. Derek Priestley
  15. As a retired gentleman, of a certain age, I love my sport & do all that I can to promote it. I also like to race in all the events that I can. In 2017 I have raced in club events in DF65 DF95 Vane A class Vane M class even Vane36" class. Open & Ranking events for IOM & RM classes. National Championships for RA, IOM, DF65, & 95, and "Old Mans Championship" for RM. I was also PRO for RM 10r & Vane A week. The point I'm trying to make is that I just want to race my boats at any level. Be it the forth coming IOM European championship, the RM World Championship or the first International gathering for DF95's As long as my finances will stretch, and "you know who" is happy, I would like to do them all!! THIS IS FROM DEREK PRIESTLEY THE INDIVIDUAL SKIPPER!! NOT THE MYA PRESIDENT!!
