Today we have received confirmation that D-Zero designer Dan Holman and class newcomer Tom Southwell will be representing the D-Zero class at the Battle of the Classes 2015 at the Southampton boat show on Sunday 13th September. Good luck to Dan and Tom.

Some information on the Battle of the Classes event (more details can be found here):

The Battle Of The Classes Pursuit Race will feature at the Southampton Boat Show on the 13th of September 2015.

Hosted by Royal Corinthian YC and SWAC with live GPS Tracking and online commentary from SailRacer. Each dinghy class is invited to enter two of their best boats to compete in the annual pursuit race.

SailRacer will be on hand again with live GPS tracking and online commentary.

Competitors will launch from the nearby Southampton Water Activities Centre and will be competing on a course laid just off the boat show marina. Each class will be represented by just two boats so the standard will be as high because each class will be competing to show which class is best.
