Lakewood to Host DF95 Radio Controlled Sailboat Championship Regatta

September 3rd, 2019

Bay Access Sailing Foundation presents the 2019 DragonFlite 95 Championship

The DragonFlite 95 is the fastest-growing RC one-design class internationally; strict rules enforce that all boats are identical. The local fleet in the Galveston Bay area has grown to over 30 members just this year. Race organizers are anticipating 40 plus boats split out into two to three heats and running as many races as possible.

Interested DF95 Owners can register or view the Notice of Race at www.df95championship.com. The entry fee is $55 and includes one meal and two drink tickets to the post-race party.

“This is the first time LYC and Bay Access will be hosting a radio-controlled model regatta,” says Chairman Brian Shores. “Spectators are encouraged to bring a chair to the LYC Inner Harbor to watch the action. Refreshments will be available.”

Skippers can expect professional race management from Fred Rocha who has extensive experience running RC regattas.

The Skippers’ Meeting is scheduled for Sataturday Sept. 28 at 10 a.m.. Participants, members and guests will also enjoy an evening party at the LYC pool on Saturday night.
