\Dragonforce 65\yandy150663

The Dragonforce 65 class originated from the rules of the RG65 class. The concept was to produce a low cost, one design boat which followed the RG65 class rules, but could develop as a class within a class. The concept came to fruition in 2013 with the DF65, based on the Ice RG65 by Mark Dicks. Produced by Joysway Hobby Co in China the DF65 was an instant hit and to date (early 2016) there are over 12,000 boats out there sailing and racing. 

The DF65 class has taken the world by storm. However, it has taken a little while for the class to get organised. This is all changing though. In Australia, the class is administered by the Australian DF 65 Radio Sailing Association. The association was launched on the 1st January 2018 to much fanfare and celebrations and now have 286 like minded DF65 owners that have joined in the first five months since incorporation. Around the world, similar bodies are establishing themselves, and it will not be long before there is a well developed racing circuit to attend.

Like the DF95, the DF65 is also a strict one design boat with no room for development. Many skippers like the strict one design nature of these classes as the overall results depend entirely on the skill of the operator rather than the depth of their pocket!
