FD Forum

We have agreed with Sjors Riemslag to turn off the FD forum. It takes many hours and an enormous amount of effort and passion to run a forum! Many thanks to Sjors and his crew to run the forum for such a long time and for their great contribution to the FD community.
The IFDCO is very interested to hear your opinions about the development of the class and you are very welcome to contact us directly via email or via your new facebook site, to join the competitor´s hearings at Worlds or Euro-Championships. Discuss within your national class and forward your ideas via the National Secretary Meetings or even better get involved in the national or international class organizations ….

We will establish a buy and sell section on the homepage very soon and keep you posted about all the new and important news in FD sailing world.
