As the storm hits the UK, we head off down to Dartmoor again tomorrow for the DF65/DF95 TT for the weekend – looking like similar conditions to last time we were there!!
The Catsails’ sailloft – like many other places in the UK – is currently resembling a sweatshop as I cut out the many parts for more Deluxe Rigbags on order. As we make everything ourselves, your sails and accessories start off as that roll of cloth and after going through various stages , end up as your deluxe accessories and sails. Sue, Catsails.
All in the post today and then we are off again for the weekend. This time we are headed down /along to Cornwall – specifically the Argal Reservoir at Falmouth for the IOM Ranking weekend.
So the sun shone and the wind blew! Amazingly, we had a weekend of racing where some people used every rig for the Dragon Force 65. A +, A, B and the C suit were all out on the water at some point over the weekend.
John Tushingham emerged triumphant but it was certainly tense for some of the next places as Sunday afternoons’ racing kicked in. Congratulations to all. The full report and results will be on dfracing.co.uk. Thnak you to all at Two Islands for making us all so welcome.
As many of you know, Sue was involved in a major accident at the beginning of October 2017, she is now about to go in and have her Knee Replacement Operation, following which we hope Sue will be well on the road to full recovery. Unfortunately this is going to have an effect on our lead times for the month of June and possibly into July. So we are just asking that you email us first if you are concerned about lead times for all new orders – temporarily it will mean a longer lead time for production of sails and accessories. Current orders will not be effected. Thank you for your patience. Sue & Nigel, Catsails.
So after a very busy week getting sails and accessories out to customers, Nigel headed off to Eastbourne on Friday afternoon for the DF95 UK Nationals 2019. As usual the host club of Eastbourne looked after all the competitors and their support crews all weekend – going above and beyond! Congratulations go to John Tushingham on his hard fought win, and Nigel placed a very creditable 8th place.
Link to results –
A bumper crop of DF65 and Df95 sails going out on a Monday, this week is sure going to be a busy one if this is the start…
Well done , Pierluigi on your 2nd place – looks like you all had a great event.
