We are holding an RG65 pop-up open day at the Birkenhead lake on 9th December.
With the current RG65 National Champion intending to compete along with several of the clubs Dragonforce 65 sailors, good competition should be available at all levels.
Racing will start promptly at 13:00 and the club will be open from 11.30 for practice.
Entry is £1 for all and is open to non-members.
Tea/coffee and light refreshments will be available but you should bring your own lunch.
Pay on the day, but please email John Brierley (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your entry ASAP.
14 competitors turned up for the first race of the winter series, including visitors from Scotland and Fleetwood, and were greeted with a good breeze straight down the lake, testing the limits of the number 1 rigs.
Unfortunately, 2 suffered gear failures even before the start so we only had 12 starters.
Nine races were held with the last completed in fading wind and light!

Nine sailors arrived to find a flat calm lake but very slight wind. One was unable to withstand the pressure of sailing in light winds and opted to be Race Officer! (Dave W)
A short course was set and one race held. A decision was made to have a cup of tea and to see what happened with the wind. Thirty minutes later a course was set away from the clubhouse and 7 more races were held with slightly more wind available.
