New Date for the 2021 RSK D-Zero National Championships
After having to cancel the 2020 National Championships due to COVID restrictions and having set a new provisional June 2021 date, the D-Zero class association with the support of Largs Sailing Club has now taken a positive decision to set August 20th to 22nd for the RSK supported National Championships; by moving the event to later in the year Paul Jefferies, class chairman, feels that the event is much more certain to go ahead and gives an opportunity for entrants to plan well in advance which should ensure a good level of entries and hopefully meet the class ambition to top the 50 boat entry target.
Paul says “we must thank Largs sailing club and our event sponsors RSK Group and Tunnocks for their tremendous support and for sticking with us. The new August ‘21 date also means that for those wishing to extend their holiday in Scotland entrants could opt to make a week of it and join in the hugely popular Largs Regatta Festival the following week …. What a great way to get back into active sailing!”
With top sailors such as Dan Holman, Nick Craig, Steve Bolland and Alistair McLauglin in the class, the D-Zero fleet is enjoying healthy competition, well supported open meetings and growth and the boat is proving to be one of the UK’s most exciting hiking single-handers. The nationals are set to be an exciting and enjoyable event set on great sailing waters at a club renowned for its excellent race management and hospitality.
Note – Designed by Dan Holman and further developed and built by Devoti (of Olympic Finn fame) the D-Zero is a fast modern, lightweight racing dinghy built of carbon and modern composites raced by men and women from 50kg to 105kg and ages from 15 to 70yrs of age. Fleets are to be found UK wide from North Scotland to the West Country. UK sail numbers are now reaching toward the mid 300’s
