2023 SILVER CUP, Baratti, Toscana, Italia, European championship
In the beautiful town of Baratti (LI), in the center of the Tuscan coast, at the Piombinese CVP Sailing Center, the 2023 SILVER CUP took place, valid as the European championship class D-one.
Very tall pines, the chirping of cicadas, the sunny beach and the beautiful sea characterized this event, which however had to deal with a naughty wheather perturbation that put the Italian Civil Protection on alert.

GBR: 2022 National Championships, Lymington
The D-One fleet joined many, many other dinghies over the weekend to enjoy the combined hospitality of Royal Lymington Yacht Club and Lymington Town Sailing Club for their annual dinghy regatta. The organisers kindly arranged an extra race on each day and dedicated prizes.
The D-Ones are a very international class, with popular annual events in glam locations on the med and across central Europe and although most travelling fleets are suffering post-Brexit, post covid, post-fuel hikes, it was encouraging to see new boats starting to appear in the UK once again as Messrs Nick Favell and Nick Crickmore sported VERY shiny new boats. Game on!
2022 GBR and European Circuit

There is plenty to prepare for as we look forward to welcoming the back the travelling fleet for some great competition at fantastic venues.
2021 Campionato Alpino / Championnat des Alpes
Due to the continuing difficulties of organising group events, AVAL-CDV have asked the Classe Italiane D-One to postpone this event to 2022.
We very much hope to hold this event 23-26 June 2022, and to enjoy this wonderful location with our friends in easier times.
Thank you to everyone who showed their enthusiasm to enter this event. All fees received will be refunded shortly.
2020 Gold Cup, Lake Lipno CZE
It was a welcome return to Lake Lipno in the Czech Republic for the D One fleet, this time competing for the Gold Cup, again at Kemp Jestrabi venue for the European Championships back in 2016. The event superbly conceived and managed by Victor Teply and generously sponsored by Devoti and Harken.
Lake Lipno’s sub-alpine setting provided a stunning backdrop for the event and is so remote that we had more chance of catching a sheep than the corona virus despite Czechia recently moving onto the red list.
With travel restrictions etc in place the fleet of 15 was not unexpectedly smaller than usual, but made up for this with some high quality sailors including 4 Czechs (two from the Olympic squad) and 11 visitors from all corners of Europe, one representing Argentina as befitting the nearly world championship status of the event. The competitors weighed in with a range between 65kg and 100kg with the boats dual wing settings providing equal racing across all conditions.
