The “Dragon Force 65” and “Dragon Flite 95” model yachts each represents and offer affordable & race orientated designs. They introduce the novice, or experienced skipper an opportunity to race together in these “Strict One Class Designs”, of international repute in the model yachting community, with its own dedicated “DF class website”.
Each design comes boxed with an “A” rig, in a “Almost ready to Sail” (ARTS) form, which then involves rigging the masts, sails, lines etc. All you then need is to factor in a “radio & batteries” to get afloat.
4 rigs are permitted for each class depending on wind strength, your preference & budgets.

Our club has been evolving since their introduction with the numbers of DF65s now having its own “DF65” dedicated Saturday race meeting once per month.
Now the larger designed “DF95” has grown in interest & is also to be integrated with racing in a series.
All this, together within the club, skipper aided training & practice times is also envisaged. This “shared help” is designed to aid helms to get the best out of them in boat tuning, race tactics etc.
We all need the practice!
The DF association has a “ Hints & Tips” page (see below & follow menu)
