Lever Cup Saturday 4th June 2016

There were 3 entries and one round was sailed.

  • 1st John Plant / 6 points
  • 2nd Eddie Greenwood / 5 points
  • 3rd Peter Jackson / 4 points

Leech Cup Saturday 20th August 2016

There were 5 entries and one round was completed in torrential rain and strong winds. Smallest suits of sails were used throughout and even these were almost too much for these small boats to handle when the wind freshened even more during the afternoon. For the last 2 heats beats only were sailed, to reduce the possibility of damage to yachts and competitors.

After Heat 4, three yachts had the potential to win the event. Eddie had 11 points, Martin and Peter W each had 10 points. In the last heat Martin beat Eddie and
Peter J beat Peter W, resulting in an overall win for Martin. Final scores were:

  • 1st Martin Pritchard / 13 points
  • 2nd Eddie Greenwood & Eric Watkinson / 11 points
  • 3rd Peter Whiteside / 10 points
  • 4th= John Plant / 3 points
  • 4th= Peter Jackson / 3 points

DF65 2016 Third Series 7th Meeting 7th September

Same nine skippers as last week turned up for our final Wednesday evening meeting of 2016. The wind was almost non-existent and we were plagued with floating weed so after four races we called it a night. The results as usual are below (and no, your eyes don’t deceive you, yours truly first!!) with the final league table for the series.

Congratulations to Chris Chatfield, winner and Chris Haworth, runner up.
