DF 65 Winter Series 5

16TH March 2019

The final event in the Winter Series, turned out to be a real challenge for the five skippers who turned out, in what was almost impossible conditions as Storm Hannah blew through, but the little Dragons did us proud and managed to cope with the huge chop and very strong wind and gusts.

We managed to get in five races before the conditions worsened, and it became too dangerous to sail, so we had to call it a day around 3pm.

All that said there was some very close racing, especially between Garry and John, who even tied one race, and both finished on the same points, but Garry took the honours on count back, and with John missing the first race this maybe cost him in the end.

So this brings to an end our Winter Series with the final result as follows:-

3rd place: Walter Audley 200 pts.

2nd place: John Plant 254 pts.

1st place: Garry Benson 300 pts.

We now move on to our next event, and the start of the Saturday Series, which is on 6th April start 1pm.
