It’s a wrap
On behalf of Poole Radio Yacht Club a big thank you to all competitors for taking part in the championship and making this into the great event it was.
The event was a wonderful celebration of all things Dragon Force 65, a great boat, great racing, great company and great fun.
We really enjoyed your company and we look forward to catching up with our new Dragon Racing friends in the near future and to hopefully seeing you in Poole in the near future.
Then very sadly they all went !

15 Days to go
Two weeks today we will be throwing open the newly painted big green shutters, putting out the flags and welcoming old and new freinds from across the UK & Europe to Poole Radio Yacht Club for the 2021 UK Dragon Force F65 National Championship.
We have more really good news:
We are delighted to announce that we have an additional perpetual Trophy for the Championship.
International Management Systems Marketing Ltd (IMSM) have very kindly commissioned and donated a very smart Trophy to be presented to the leading skipper from the home club.
IMSM are an International Consultancy specialising in the implementation of ISO standards to all organisation from SMEs to large corporations.
The IMSM Trophy is a great incentive for members of the host club to take part in the UK National Championship and adds an extra dynamic to DF65 club racing during the year of the championship.
So in 2021 Poole Radio Yacht Club skippers will have the good fortune to have 2 trophies to aim at before the IMSM Trophy leaves Poole and makes its way around the UK from 2022.
See you in Poole in just under 2 weeks!

Time to talk Fish & Chips & Prizes
To compliment the Saturday Evening Championship posh Fish & Chip Supper we are going to present some Posh Prizes to add to evening fun.
As a class we are supported by many great trade suppliers who deliver exceptional service. Despite a very tough year they have gone 13 steps further and donated some very generous prizes for the Evening.
Sorry no details here about the prizes, but you will be impressed, particularly if you win one.
So a very big thank you to:
Cat Sails - Nigel & Sue Brown
Graphite - John Tushingham
Housemartin Sails - Martin Roberts
PJ Sails - Peter & Lesley Wiles
RC Yachts - Mike Weston
Sailboat RC - Josin Marasovic

We really couldn’t do it without you!
