‘Frozen Fingers’ DF65 Winter Championship Series

Round 4 of the ‘Frozen Fingers’ Dragon Force 65 Winter Championship Series took place on a wet Sunday 15th January 2017. The wind was primarily from the WSW at 6 – 9 mph and stayed constant all day.

Seven skippers braved the elements to participate and apart from Malcolm Schaffer, who suffered intermittent loss of battery power after race 1 and then retired after race 4, everybody completed the day without issues.

There were no incidents on the water and no boat over at the start, indicating that skippers are improving with their sailing.

Whilst Buzz Coleman made a poor start he soon made up for this by winning 7 of the races, with Dennis Graham and Dave bland winning the remaining ones. As such Buzz was the overall winner with 10 points, followed by Dennis on 21 points and Glenn Meekcoms third on 22 points.
