Yet another fantastic days racing at Scotland Farm . 14 competitors came to the line on a warm overcast morning with a gentle westerly wind allowing top suit conditions. Chris Elliot won the day by a handsome margin showing the rest just how to set up and sail the Dragon. three RG 65’s  were on the water two were breaking wind ( wait for it ) designs sailed by Phil and son Jo Harpham and the other a home built design by Gordon Bennett who eventually opted for his White Dragon with a new design in sails see pic below, It was nice to see anew member sailing his Dragon and we welcome Geoff Burrell to the club, We also think it should be mandatory for new members to bring cake on there first day sailing !!!!!!, also nice to see was Rob Wilson sailing a Dragon purchased from that well known site called Ebay complete with classy sails and a bargain at   £ 90.00. Alan who is not yet a member (but soon will be) is making up a dragon at home not quite finished,   did the scoring for us. This is probably the best fleet of Dragons we have had at the club and as the weather gets warmer we should be seeing even more , after all there are 24 in the club and they make for jolly exciting sailing .  A few pics below and at the bottom the results. Every body went away happy with there sailing and look forward to the next Dragon race next month .
