Lincoln Radio Sailing Club

Home » Uncategorized » I.O.M SUMMER SERIES ROUND 7


What a fantastic morning for racing radio yachts, probably one of the best days of the year, great B suit breeze straight down the lake, Only nine skippers showed but hey the racing was hard and fair,and those that missed it !!!!!   Keith with his old Cheinz got off to a great start with three wins and a second in the first 5 races, but Chris G kept him honest with his with his consistancy, Jen hand was sailing extremly well and was up there scrapping with the leaders in the middle part of the race, Mick Chamberlain had a slowish start by his standards but got to grips in race 6 with a bullitt only to lose his radio connection and miss the next two races. Our visitor David I think found the Lincoln competition tougher than he thought it would be but I am sure enjoyed his day. Mick Cooper continues to improve, and we look forward to the launch of his new boat from Italy in the near future. Adrian C is sailing a very old design from 1993 with original sails and electrics he is very keen and an ex dingy sailor and I am sure we shall see him improve in the weeks to come.

Many thanks to Jen Hand who came down very early and scrubbed the portaloo from top to bottom before getting stuck into racing .

Thanks also to the race team Allan E and Chris G for keeping things moving and allowing us to get 11 races in.

This is the last of the summer series but get prepared for the Winter series that starts in October
