DRAGON FORCE @ SCOTLAND FARM 9TH MARCH 2014

Another fantastic day at Scotland Farm , The weather and sunshine meant that coats came off and a light south-westerly breeze had all boats with their top suit on. This was the first full morning for the Dragons , and twelve competitors came to the line for the first of six races, each lasting approx 20 minutes with two laps of the windward / leeward course, the beat was true but tricky and you had to pick the right side to make gains, all buoys were port rounding and it looked liked Martin 31 was straight into winning ways with a first win, Mick .C 46 got a second, and Gordon. b 23  followed up with a third place, Gordon has made all his own sails, and very nice they looked too, so I am sure there will be some orders in the pipeline!!!!! The racing proved one thing though, it didn’t really matter on sail choice as the sails that come in the box with the Dragons are equally competitive with any others, the boat also seems to be a great leveler and providing you get your trim about right the boats are easy to sail, all you need do is point them in the right direction. The racing was very competitive and there were 4 different winners in the first 4 races ,Mick.H 14 getting a second in race 3 must be very pleased with his progress and a little tweak here and there could have Mick on the podium more often, Seymore. G who borrowed the club boat for one of the races seemed to enjoy himself, although he only did the one race , The club boat is there for anybody who wants to have a go so just see Martin at Lakeside. results are posted below and I will get the Winter series results up in the next day or two. I am sure all the members will give a warm welcome to our two new members Phil and Jim , both have I.O.M and Dragons, and we look forward to racing with them in the weeks to come, If either of you need any help or assistance you only have to ask.
