Unfortunately ‘Coalhouse Fort Radio Yacht Club’ are no longer able to Host the DF65 Class National Championship this year, due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic.
We feel it is not correct to put both our membership and travelling competitors at risk of this Virus.
Even if there was a change in circumstance, allowing unrestricted group gathering by early August, there would be no time to show that it would be safe for all those involved, to continue.
We feel the time for cancellation should be now, to ensure all prospective entries can be made aware. We will off coarse refund any entry fees paid so far. Finally we would like to offer to host the event in 2021 if circumstance allows.
Notice Of Race –
All Competitors must sail a fully class compliant yacht. Yachts may be checked during registration and at any time during the event, non compliant yachts may be refused entry and Competitors found racing with non compliant equipment during the event may be disqualified from either that race (not discardable) or the event in total. It is the competitors responsibility to be compliant with the Class Rules a copy of which is available here these should be read in conjunction with the build instructions available here.
