2023 isn't over and the D-Zeros are planning another great year in 2024.

We're all set for our inaugural European Championship and our 10th Anniversary National Championship - heck we're nearly becoming establishment in the dinghy racing world.

The Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy has been selected as the perfect venue to attract our friends from Europe, a big south coast entry, and the Scots will travel anywhere for a free meal, beer and a chance to outsail the fleet!

The first notice of booking has been released, to be followed soon by the Notice of Race once we've signed up all our sponsors. Thanks so far to Harken, Sailing Chandlery and Phoenix Marine. We hope that North Sails and Devoti Sailing won't be far behind them.

Have a great sailing year in 2024!
