Suntouched Sailboats are pleased to announce the appointment of Boat Bits of Huddersfield as their D-Zero agent for the North of England.

Rodney Cobb of Suntouched Sailboats said "We are impressed by the knowledge and experience at Boat Bits and are pleased that they will be supporting the D-Zero in the North. It's great that we can now, through Boat Bits, provide regional access to the D-Zero for new fleet development and support for the current fleets in the region."

Ben Ratcliffe of Boat Bits said "I am excited by the opportunity to be able to offer the D-Zero in our region and have already a significant number of people lining up for trial sails. I am grateful to be involved with the D-Zero as it's an exciting boat which seems to be gathering a significant following in the UK. It's fantastic that the D-Zero, after less than 2 years from its introduction, managed to get more race entries in the GJW Direct SailJuice Winter Series than any other class! For me that makes it a winner in terms of enthusiasm from the owners and I am confident that the class will go from strength to strength."
