Devoti D-Fantastica Finn
The Fantastica Finns are now recognised, in the international and Olympic fleets, as being the only
choice for an Olympic campaign. This is also true of the highly competitive Finn Masters fleet where speed and performance are
The downside of this amazing success is that the order book is now stretched well into mid 2018.
This is great for Devoti but not so good for those who are anxious to get their hands on a new Fantastica. Having said that
we can report, from personal experience, that the Fantastica is worth the wait.
The Class Association
are busy finalising the 2018 programme with the Nationals to be held in Plymouth. Expect a full on calendar including Chichester
Harbour Race Week. Meanwhile you can be sure that many D-Zero sailors will brave the elements in the Sailjuice Winter Series.
The British D-One fleet have enjoyed some great sailing in 2017 with the highlights being the British Nationals, the D-One Gold Cup
and the D-One Europeans.
The Nationals were held at Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Sailing Club in July and attracted 20 entries
from 11 different sailing clubs. The event was won by Nick Craig, sailing for Reading S.C.
Nine GBR boats made the journey to
Allasio for the European Championships. The event attracted entries from six different countries and was sailed in light and
shifty conditions. Nick Craig again won the event with Giles Chipperfield, also GBR, in second place.
We are pleased to announce that we will soon have our Superstiff Finn booms available. These are based on the original
Finn booms but with more control over consistancy of product characteristics to ensure that all ouput is of equally high specification.
We can supply the booms as blank sections, machined and ready for fittings or fully fitted. As always most of the
fittings are Harken and we offer options of stainless steel or rope hangers for mainsheet block and tie off. All outhaul lines
are high quality Dyneema.
Also available are our Carbon vang levers with optional 13mm or 16.2mm holes for pivot pins.
The Gold Cup (World Championships) was held in May on Lake Balaton in Hungary. The event was won by local sailor Balazs Tomai with Giles Chipperfield (GBR) in third place.
