D-Zero UK Class Association Chair Paul Jefferies says:

We are pleased to tie up this sponsorship deal with the UK D-Zero dealer. Since they took over and offered their brokerage service as well as new boats the used D-Zero market has become very active with sailors upgrading knowing their boat is already sold on to a new owner.

With 2019 being the 5th anniversary of the launch of the boat it is great to see so many faces from the early adopters still active in the class together with a lot of new faces joining us. We are please to be returning to the venue of the first Inland Championships back in 2015.

The class is growing particularly well in the north of the country and in Scotland. will be offering demo sails in the boat throughout the weekend starting Friday afternoon (subject to weather conditions and the approval from the host club). To book in surf on over to their website
