Racing FD Wanted 5 (2)

Dear Friends,
After sailing in FD for 33 years, my daughter (age of 27 ys) has decided to follow his father and join the FD fleet with another young lady. So a new female team is coming to catch us in the upcoming years!
So, we are searching for a used FD boat in good condition to buy before the next season start! Five to 12 years old boats (building year after 2010) would be of interest.
If you have any idea or know an FD for sale, please contact me (e-mail: polgar.c@outlook.com) and/or my daughter named Csenge Polgar (e-mail: csenge.polgar@gmail.com).
Please help us to allow some fresh blood into the FD fleet!
Thanks and regards:
Csaba (HUN-78)

FD communication 5 (7)

Dear FD sailors 

 

I hope you are all good wherever you are right now and that the ones that went to the Worlds were able to return back home safely. Please I need your help for 3 simple things: 

 

First, as I explained in the competitors hearing, I’m on the making of a FD sailing pictures and videos stock, so any picture or video you have, and you would like for us to have if you could send it to me via email or we transfer or any way you like would be very nice. Please note this will be used for social media and for different purposes. 

Second, it would be very important for the class to have all the regattas posted. This shows that we are an active class and will help gather new sailors. For this to happen, I would need a contact of a designated person for each country. That way he/she can send me the pictures and the chronicle so it could be posted on the IFDCO website, social media and in the bulletin. We plan on doing a bulletin for 2022 but I wont be possible if we dont have a certain number of reports to do it. 

Finally, if you have any account on social media that posts about FD, please get in contact with me so I can repost your posts and I can make sort of a database so we can make things together. 

 

Thanks a lot for your collaboration. Take care!! 

 

BTW my email is guzmanea@outlook.com and my phone number +34 680676615

Dear FD-sailors,

we updated our IFDCO App. You can now receive push-notifications as soon as there are new posts on the national websites. You can manage the push-notifications in the menu “Push-Settings”. There are not all nations online right now, but we are working on it.

We also added a category “Worlds” where you can find all necessary information regarding our World Championship.

In the section “Contact” we will add the contact details of all national secretaries.

Hope to see you in Italy for our Worlds – you can now register online.

Greetings, Meike
