Dragon Force 65 Class

Everything DF65

Poole Radio Yacht Club has always tried to be at the vanguard of innovation and trends within the sport of model yacht racing.

The club has recognised the phenomenal growth of the Dragon Force 65 throughout the world and is keen to provide the opportunity to sail these yachts to both existing and new members and becomes to our sport.

The Dragon Force 65 (DF 65) is smaller, lighter and more easily managed than other classes, making it idea to transport and launch.

Dragon Force 65

This is new class to the club which as yet, due to the pandemic, has not yet raced.  The decision was made that the club needed to attract new members of a less senior nature than at present. i.e. of working age.  The DF65 is a low cost (£250 including radio) highly attractive boat that requires minimal skills and time to prepare for the water.  To keep the cost down and make sure it is true one design it was also decided that initially only two sets of sails, the A and B rigs, would be used for club racing and the sails would be limited to those produced by the manufacturer Joysway. 

Some club members have already pledged to support the fledgling fleet and at least 8 boats have been purchased.  As we are trying to attract people who may be working sailing will take place on Wednesday evenings, in the Summer, and Saturday afternoons all year.   Remembering that this is a new fleet, everything is fluid at present and I am sure changes will occur as time passes. 

 

As usual with our friendly club newcomers will be welcomed and a wealth of experience and advice is readily available to them. 

 

These boats have sold in enormous numbers both in the UK and worldwide so competition is available at Local, District, National, European and International levels.
