Dragon Force 65 Monthly Championship

The final round of the summer Monthly Dragon Force 65 Championship took place on Sunday 2nd October, on what turned out to be a warm day with a good breeze primarily from the NW and veering to the W later in the day. A windward/leeward course was set at the north end of the lake initially starting between marks 2 and 10 down to 8 back to 2 and finish between 8 and 9. However, as the wind changed the start was moved to marks 7 and 10 down to 9 back to 10 and finish between 8 and 9.

We welcomed back Buzz Coleman after a long lay-off, but he obviously had not lost his mojo with winning eight out of the ten races, to be the overall winner on 8 points. With one win and some consistent finishes, Geoff Appleton was third on 19 points and John Newton third on 20 points.
