Sunny, warm and plenty of wind met the six RG65’s for the first of two “pre-Nationals” racing practice sessions. With the wind coming from the clubhouse end, playing the shifts was of upmost importance in gaining a winning advantage. John sailing his Uno, managed 10 race wins with Martin in a Pocket Rocket taking the other 2. With the wind on the edge for top rigs it was interesting what rigs were selected and when as a first change. As usual a big thanks to Bernie for running the racing. Next week (11/9) is the last practice before the Nationals the following weekend at Keighley. All RG’s or DF65’s (including visitors) are welcome to join us. Just book in via “Upcoming Events”. Don’t forget that there is also a DF95 racing practice session and tuning advice prior to the Nationals taking place next Saturday morning starting at 10:00 (finish at approximately 12:30).
