ANOTHER GREAT DAY SAILING AT THE FARM

Eleven  Competitors came the line , with sunshine and a steady top suit breeze for round four of the Dragon winter series , It was cold dont get me wrong, but as long as you had your thermals in place , you had a smile on your face. first casualty before hitting the water was the lip, Mick gbr 46 always banging on about be sure your boat is ready for racing to everybody else, apparently no juice to the winch, say no more , he kindly did the scoring.  12 races were sailed from the East bank and first Bullitt of the day went to Bob gbr 58 and as time went on his consistency paid off as he was rarely out of the top three. Phil gbr 44 was sailing his yellow peril RG 65 and did well to top the order at the finish , although the RG’s are a separate class in this series, Chris gbr 74 with his new hull after the sinking three weeks ago was not quite doing enough to boss the morning and only started to come good towards the end, Ivan gbr 47 had some bad luck with his kicker snapping so had to sail with B rig, Mick gbr 14 was going well and proving his success with the I.O.M is no fluke, It was nice to see Norman , Gordon and Bert having some close races, Chaz retired after race 6 with radio problems and left for an early lunch , racing was exciting and fun to watch. and the eventual winner was of course Bob  gbr58 with Phil getting line honours ,

well done to everybody .
