DragonForce Winter Series #3 22/1/20

Light winds and heavy mist met the 9 DF65 sailors for the third of the Winter series at Birkenhead today.  Race Officer Ernie used most of the length of the lake for the windward /leeward course in variable strength wind.
There were 5 race winners in the 10 races, with new member Mike recording 2 of them.  Both Neil and Alan were also putting in good results but Johns consistency gave him a narrow win.  Dave, who always says he does not like light airs, posted a win and other competitive scores.
Chris had his new “Everton” blue boat on the water and now we wait for Sally to get a “Liverpool”red boat to continue the local rivalry!
The racing is becoming extremely close in these one design boats and they provide a great introduction to the sport of Radio Sailing.
