   DF65's are the smallest of PRYC yachts. At 650 mm long and fully rigged, they easily fit onto the back seat of a small sedan car. That size convenience, their low purchase cost  around $400 for a complete boat including all electrics and their one class rules ( all boats in the fleet are the same) make them a popular choice for new radio control sailors.

A competitive core group of skippers race every Tuesday and  Saturday each month at Emerald Lakes with the format varied between scratch, handicap and mixed racing.

 More experienced skippers have positively accepted a mentoring role to the benefit of new club member novice RC sailors.  Race days are run by the rules of sailing and are competitive, yet fun, and the camaraderie of everyone involved is excellent.

 PRYC DF65 History

The manufacturer Joysway, began selling Dragon Force 65 sail boats in 2013. 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. PRYC DF65 skipper Charmaine White was then instrumental in obtaining QRYA official DF65 Class recognition in Queensland State first, ahead of the class adoption throughout Australia. Dragon Force 65 class was recognized in November 2017 as the fourth PRYC yacht class. Forty-two PRYC skippers  have Dragon Force 65 yachts as of March 2024.
