RSK D-Zero Nationals – Discounted Entry deadline

It may seem hard to believe with everything that has happened worldwide over the last 18 months but we are finally getting close to our National Championships.

With the generous sponsorship packages from RSK as our title sponsor and Tunnocks as our Tracking Sponsor this promises to be the best nationals yet! We also have a VIP scheduled in for prize giving day. On top of the sponsorship the Class Association are paying well known sailing photographer Tim Olin to come for all 3 days of the event. I am sure we will improvement in hiking and boats flatter when his RIB is close by…..

With entries currently standing at 44 confirmed and another 5 promised we are VERY close to breaking the 50 barrier for the first time in our history. So if you are still wondering about coming then don’t think too long. The discounted entry deadline is on the 5th August 2021, so save yourself a few quid and get you entry in before then.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Largs!

RSK D-Zero Nationals 2020 – Postponed until 2021

In light of the ongoing Coronavirus situation the host venue for the RSK D-Zero National Championships has taken the difficult decision to cancel all of their Open events for the rest of the year with the exception of their Regatta weekend at the end of August.

As this was not unexpected the D-Zero Class Association, Club contacts at Largs SC and the Event sponsors, RSK Group and Tunnocks, had already agreed that should the event not take place this year we would go there in 2021.

The event will now take place on the 25th to 27th June 2021 at Largs.

All current paid 2020 entries have 2 options:

  1. As the entry free will remain the same for 2021 they can hold their entry for that event.
  2. A refund of their entry fee

All paid entries will receive an email shortly asking them which option to take. However if you have already entered but do not get an email do get in touch with the Class Chair, Paul Jefferies, by clicking here.

RSK D-Zero UK National Championships – Entry now open

The class will decide by the 1st May 2020 if the UK National Championships will take place.

The D-Zero Class Association are pleased to announce the entry to the 2020 RSK D-Zero National Championships is now open. You can jump straight over the to entry form by clicking here or read on for a bit more information if you still need to be persuaded…..

This will be the sixth national championships of the D-Zero Class and the first to be held away from the South Coast – a big vote of confidence in Scotland, and Largs as an International Sailing Venue.

The 2019 Nationals were held at the prestigious Weymouth Portland National Sailing Academy – site of the London Olympics Sailing 

Forty-three D-Zeros competed, with three Scots figuring in the top ten overall.

See the video of 2019 year’s Nationals here:

Scotland was voted unanimously as the location for the next Nationals at Largs Sailing Club on the basis that Largs SC is recognised as hi-quality sailing, extremely hospitable, venue. It has hosted four very popular D-Zero Scottish Championships; the 2019 event enjoying 17 entries, with boats travelling from all over the UK.

It is expected that the 2020 event will attract at least 45 boats with more than a dozen Scottish Entries. In the Scottish Year of Coasts and Waters we intend to make this one of the best and most enjoyable racing events that the fleet has experienced.

RSK, an international Engineering, Environmental and Support Services Group, have agreed to sponsor the event and the on water tracking by SailRacer is sponsored by Tunnocks. We are hoping that other Scottish companies will support the event to give a real Scottish Welcome and a taste of the best Scotland has to offer. 

The plan, as with previous years, is to have a BBQ on the Friday evening. This is not included in the entry fee as we appreciate people may have other plans Friday.

Food on Saturday is included and will precede the AGM which we will aim to keep short and sweet so as not to spoil the party.

More details will be released as they are finalised, in the meantime get your entry in by clicking here.
