6 competitors entered the R6M Open on Sunday. 12 Races were sailed in the day with Derek Priestley taking a narrow win from Shaun Holbeche.
To cap a great weekend 9 skippers turned out on a very pleasant day with a good A Rog breeze blowing. 12 Heats completed with Derek sailing an Italico taking the honours.
A great turnout of fifteen skippers, were met with very little wind for this our first outing of the
year with the 95. With what wind there was, a zig zag type course was set to start, being
changed to a sausage midway through proceedings, as the direction changed. Sadly the
breeze also dropped, and the last few races of the eight we managed were more of a drift
about, requiring plenty of patience. Shaun was always in the top three finishers, and took the
day over Garry.
The club has been informed that approval has been given for the DF95 Global regatta to be hosted by the Club in May 2023. This is great news and we are proud to be invited to host such a prestigious event. Planning starts from now.
