Dragon Force 65–Sunday 21st May

Sunday 21st May 2017 was round 3 of the Sunday Spring Quarter Championship with eight skippers competing. it was a sunny day with a strong breeze primarily from the SSE which allowed a windward/leeward course. The course started between marks 7 and 8, up to 11, down to seven and finish between 7 and the pole on the bank. This course was maintained until the last four races when it was extended to include an additional beat and downwind leg.

There is some significant improvement in a number of skippers performance, namely Dave Sellens, Steve Bines and Bill Still, and we welcomed John Lambert back to Dragon Force 65 racing. There was some close racing at the front with five skippers taking at least one win, namely, John Newton, John Lambert, Malcolm Schaffer, Steve Bines and Dave Sellens, and had Dave not had to go early he could potentially have finished up higher. However, it was the consistency of John Newton that won on the day, making him the overall winner on 25 points, followed by John Lambert on 28 points and Malcolm Schaffer third on 36 points.
