Giuseppe La Scala‎, the first D-Zero owner in Italy posted the following on the class Facebook page:

Happy New Year from the first D Zero owner in Italy. The picture was taken today, during the ITA 1 launch in the Tirrenian Sea (Castiglione della Pescaia, coast of Tuscany). Thanks to my partner Andrea Pivanti.

Welcome to the fleet Giuseppe and we hope you are the first of many.

The D Zero arrives on the Isle of Man

David Summerville reports:

The first D-Zeros were delivered to the Isle of Man this week. Today they were spotted racing in the Manx Sailing & Cruising Club’s Winter Series on the picturesque Injebreck Reservoir. In the summer months they’ll be racing on the Irish Sea.

Manx Sailing and Cruising Club also report (to see their Facebook page click here):

Bourne Plaice Injebreck Winter Series.
Different conditions today very blustery and gusty, many swimmers and retirements.
Also the first outing for the brand new D-Zero single handed dinghy,
with two on the water (GBR143 Mike Pridham and GBR146 Mike Swales), not ideal weather for shake down sailing, but you have to start sometime.

And of course some pictures, photo credits Keith Poole and Neil Rawlinson:

Grafham Water SC officially grants the D-Zero fleet status

Taken from: http://www.grafham.org/d-zero-achieves-recognised-fleet-status-at-grafham

Racing Committee has added the Devoti D-Zero to the classes that Grafham recognises as racing fleets. The boat joins our five established fleets (Flying Fifteens, Lasers, RS400, L2000, Sprint-15s), racing alongside the handicap fleets (Asymmetric, Catamaran, Fast and Slow handicap dinghies).

Initially, the D-Zero will start with the slow handicap boats (Start 5 on Sunday mornings, Start 4 in the afternoon); this arrangement will be reviewed, depending on the number of boats racing regularly. Assuming the provisional handicap (1010) is confirmed, the D-Zero will fight it out with the other single-handers in Start 3 on Wednesday evenings.
