More below about what you can see on stand C6 at the Dinghy Show
In just over a year the Finn world has changed with almost all of the major players in the class switching to the Devoti D-Fantastica. We would guess that it's no surprise given the amazing success of the D-Fantastica over the past 12 months. The final major Finn event of 2015, the most prestigious Finn event other than the Olympics, the Finn Gold Cup was held in Takapuna, New Zealand and the top 9 places went to people sailing the D-Fantastica with 10th going to a Classic Devoti Finn.
Anyone wanting to get their hands on this revolutionary new Devoti Finn will need to wait until mid September for delivery if they place an order now, such is the demand for these boats.
It's incredible that, with such tight measurement tolerancances, Devoti and the Fantastica team have managed to, yet again come up with the winning formula. One of our regular Devoti Finn customers, having owned a considerable number of Finns, just took delivery of a new D-Fantastica and first comment after racing was 'best Finn i have ever sailed'.
Our passion for Finns is well known and we would be very pleased to meet with you and tell you more about this amazing Finn.
The Devoti D-Zero, following a massive showing this winter,can also be seen at the Ali Pali!
It's fantastic to be able to report that the class outshone all other dinghy classes in terms of number of races entered in the 2015/2016 GJW Direct SailJuice Winter Series. This amazing statistic, after less than two years from the launch of the D-Zero, demonstrates the high level of enthusiasm and commitment from the early adopters of the class.
For this year's Dinghy Show we will be showing off our new Flip Up Rudder as an option for people who prefer this to the standard cassette rudders. We will also be displaying our Limited Anniversary Edition D-Zero complete with carbon TackTick bracket.
Come and visit our stand at the Dinghy Show and find out more about our plans for the class as well as learning more about this high performance, hiking single hander! The D-Zero Class Association is just opposite our stand so you get the chance to chat with the enthusiastic owners and find out why they enjoy the boat so much.
Better still is that any order for a D-Zero taken at the Dinghy Show will qualify for our 'Special Dinghy Show Offer'. Details about this offer to be published here soon!
The Devoti D-One has, over the past two years, gone from strength the strength in the UK attracting a number of top dinghy sailors from other prominent single handed classes. It was great when Nick Craig, one of the most successful and prominent dinghy sailors in the UK, fell in love with the D-One and joined the fleet with the result that many others followed him into this exciting, two sailed, single hander. With so many new D-Ones coming into the UK fleet there's always an opportunity to grab a bargain used boat and join the fleet.
We are pleased to have sponsored the D-Ones in previous years and will continue to do so in 2016 supporting both the travellers' series and the National Championships. We are looking forward to an exciting 2016 season with the usual thrills and spills to be expected in this demanding class.
The UK D-One sailors love to travel and many will be supporting mainland Europe events in 2016. We are opposite the D-One Class Association stand at the Dinghy Show so there's a chance to order our D-One from us after checking out the boat and sailors on the Class stand.
D-Ones go from strength to strength in the UK
The Devoti Optimist making waves across Europe
After all what would you expect from the most successful ever builder of the Olympic Finn class? The Devoti Optimist is fast becoming accepted as a top rate racer and with the Devoti quality and attention to design behind it it's no surprise that it's leading the way.
Come and visit us at the Dinghy Show and see what's so special about the Devoti Optimist!
We will be offering a special Dinghy Show deal, restricted to a small number of boats only, to anyone looking to upgrade to this great little boat!
