Dragon Force 65 Winter Series Round 3

what a fantastic mornings racing, A cold frosty morning at 9am not a breath of wind at 10 am and then !!!! a great little breeze 5/6 knots at the most had us racing from the south bank with a great course and no salad, well a tiny bit. Keith got off to a great start with  Alan Newman and Gordon Bennett second and third, 2nd race saw Mick Chamberlain take the win with Alan Edgar in second and Alan Newman third, It was very competetive all through the fleet with Bob geary posting a win in race Five. This in fact was some of the very best Dragon racing this year and everybody went home happy.

Many thanks to the OOD,s who did an amazing job. And many thanks to all who showed up to make this a very pleasant morning . 9 skippers 9 races .

IOM Winter Series Round 1 12th November 2017

The first round of the I.O.M winter series and C rig was the order of the day, there were times you could have used B rig and one or two skippers tried with some success. Dave Burke and Ed ran a good event as OOD’s and thirteen skippers sailed , some notable absentees, including one optimistic skipper who only packed his top suit, so it could easily have been 15 plus. The breeze from the North West provided us with a super beat and full length run on the South bank, 9 races completed with a little salad as it is now called, but with such a strong breeze you could power through it most of the time. A new Sedici was on show for the first time and showed some good pace but as with any new boat was hampered by one or two teething problems. Chris E gbr74 won the day with 5 first places and excelled in the breeze. I think all skippers went away happy with their racing, it was a fab day for sunshine and fast runs, and a great oportunity to try those small rigs that normally do not get used. Many thanks to all skippers for being there, and the officials for keeping things moving. A minutes silence was observed as close to 11 am as possible.
