Class Information

A benefit of the class is the low purchase cost, currently around $260 AUS for a complete boat including all electrics.  England's, Mark Dicks used his race winning RG 65 Light Ice design for the Dragon Force 65 class (DF65). Those who become involved can be assured the class is well thought out, not just a cheap toy.

The beauty of the Dragon Force 65, being a strict one design class, is that sailing does not become an arms race where money rules.  Any replacement parts required must be purchased from the supplier and essentially a boat will remain competitive for as long as it floats.

DF65 Development History

The manufacturer Joysway, began selling Dragon Force 65 sail boats in 2013. According to the sole Australian importer about 1,000 were sold in Australia to the end of May 2015 and by November 2017, just over 2,000 in total were sold by Hobby Warehouse. By 2019 DF65 yachts were being raced in some 64 different clubs around Australia.



 PRYC skippers began racing Dragon Force 65 yachts in 2014 as part of an RG 65 class. With the release of Dragon Force 65 Restricted Class Rules Version 1.6 in 2017 permitting the use of an A+ sail, yachts using such sails no longer fit within RG65 class rules. Dragon Force 65 class was recognized in November 2017 as the fourth PRYC yacht class. Forty-two PRYC skippers currently have Dragon Force 65 yachts as of August 2020.
