After the excellent welcome we all received in Texas in 2018 we were looking forward to the 2020 DF65 Globals in Sweden. Covid has delayed that now by some time but there is good news for DF Global events, see below for details.
The Executive Committee recently sought expressions of interest to host the next 2 Global Regattas.
A comprehensive application was received from Sweden to host the 2024 DF65 Regatta, following the 2020 deferred events caused by Covid.
The Committee has unanimously approved the event to be held at Nynashamn, Sweden from 6th to 12th May 2024.
Here is a short video prepared for 2020 regatta….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQsq6ETRwBM

Some great social activities are planned along with activities for partners. Fleet sizes are still to be agreed.
The Executive committee has received an expression of interest from the Fleetwood Model Yacht Club in the UK to host the 2023 DF95 Global Regatta in the summer months. This will be considered when further details are provided.
Future Global regattas are intended to fall back into the 2 year cycle (post Covid) with the DF95s scheduled for 2026. Member nations wishing to be considered to host this event are requested to contact the DFICA Secretary.
