2016 is building up to be a fantastic year of D-One sailing.  We have some great regattas lined up for you in some of the D-One's favourite locations and also some exciting new events.

IMG 0009This year the European Championships will once again be hosted by the Czechs on Lake Lipno at Yacht Club Jestrabi.  It really is a fantastic base for sailng event.  The club has a relaxed atmosphere with camping or motorhome facitilities right next to the launching beach with parking for cars and trailers also.  The site has cabins available to hire with a small cafe and pub or there is a very reasonably priced hotel across the road.  The race course is not far from the launch which means only a short time after you cross the finish line you can be relaxing with a beer and forget about that terrible start or vica versa you can be relaxing with a nice beer with only short distance to get out to the race course to make that terrible start (I think that is the normal Czech tradition)!  A full social will be organised at the club with often a local brewary donating a keg of beer in the evening.  The  event will take place from 16th June to 19th June with training races organised on the thursday.  NOR and registration is available here: http://www.camplipno.com/d-one-european-championship-2016

The Gold Cup this year goes back to Lake Garda.  A place firmly in the heart of many sailor.  We had such a fun and well run Europeans there in 2015 we simply signed up to come back.

There will be the usual pasta party after sailing and of course the beautiful scenery the beautiful poeple and the beautiful food and wine to endugle in.  The regatta will take place from the 15th - 18th September and NOR and registration will be available online at;  http://www.fragliavelariva.it/en/regatta/2072/view
