DF 65/95 TT Event Info


DARTMOOR M.B.C. looks forward to welcoming all DF competitors and visitors to SHAUGH LAKE for the TT events to be run on Saturday 10TH of August & Sunday 11th of August 2019.

This will be the second time that the club has hosted this event on the lake which borders the Dartmoor National Park. The venue provides something different for the racing skipper as the lake lies in the now unused section of a china clay production area. The lake has two fully walkable control zones and an elevated platform control zone on the north side. Boat launching is from two separate fully decked platforms. Although not the largest of lakes, it is sizeable enough to enable courses for most racing classes to be laid.

Racing can be challenging at times due to the nature of the surrounding countryside and the weather conditions associated with the moor. The venue is popular with a significant number of visiting competitors wanting to return to it because of the calibre of organised racing which the club offers.  As a private club with free car parking, toilets, buildings and event gazebo’s it has a lot to offer, but it also something else, scenic Dartmoor as a backdrop. This year permission has been granted for Motor homes to remain on site throughout the event including the Saturday over night. But please note, the discharging of either grey or black water on the site is not allowed due to environmental restrictions.

In both the 65 and 95 classes local numbers have increased significantly and it is likely that a good number of club boats will enter the events.  DMBC has a number of scheduled MYA events to run this Summer and with this in mind further upgrades of the Club’s facilities and equipment have taken place.  Structural upgrades have been made at both launching areas and also in respect of H&S in several lake positions. With strict environmental conditions to adhere to the uniqueness of the site remains and the local wildlife are very apparent on the site.

The Race Officers for the events are the same as used on the previously run TT events so the requirements of the classes are well known.
