2022 Gold Cup - Gravedona, Lago di Como, ITA
The D-One has always specialised in great championships in beautiful European locations, so, after two years of very little international sailing, D-One sailors from all over Europe are delighted to have finished a fantastic Gold Cup on Lake Como, hosted by Centro Vela Alto Lario at Gravedona.
A warm-up event was held with the Yacht Club Dervio, on the opposite side of the lake, the weekend before, and showed the 15 boats attending that this was going to be a cracker. The baking sunshine brought 15-18 knots of thermal southerly, with a continuous range of shifts and gusts meaning that no particular route was a certain winner either upwind or down.
Alessandro Novi (ITA) showed tremendous pace to win the event. Marek Bachtik (CZE), Patrick Rufenacht (SUI) and Nick Crickmore (GBR) also found a way to the top of a fairly high-scoring event, but all had some erratic results when caught out by the shifts, or just an out-of-practice capsize. These top four awaited the arrival of the rest of the Gold Cup fleet with more or less confidence in their mastery of the lake conditions.
2022 GBR and European Circuit
There is a great year ahead for the UK D-One Class!
2022 is shaping up as a strong one for the UK D-One fleet with an open event calendar comprising an exciting mix of inland, sea and foreign venues.
The UK circuit kicks off in early April at Oxford Sailing Club before moving on to Burghfield Sailing Club in late April. The National Championship will return to the heart of UK D-One sailing at Lymington Town Sailing Club in July. For the Inland Championship, the Class heads north to Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club in September. The ever popular, Warsash Sailing Club will again bookend the season in October.
A UK circuit travellers series will include the Nationals, Inlands plus one other open event.
For those wishing to travel further afield, the European circuit includes the Gold Cup at Gravedona, Lake Como, Italy in May with the European Championship at Lake Balaton Hungary in September.

There is plenty to prepare for as we look forward to welcoming the back the travelling fleet for some great competition at fantastic venues.

We very much hope to hold this event 23-26 June 2022, and to enjoy this wonderful location with our friends in easier times.
