Dragon Force 65 Sunday Championship Series

Sunday 3rd September 2017 saw round 8 of the Dragon Force 65 Sunday Championship Series on what was an overcast day with a good breeze. Initially the wind was primarily from the SE at about 15 mph gusting to 18 mph, but gradually veered to SSE and then more S.

Initially it was a windward/leeward course starting between marks 7 and 8, a beat to mark 10, down to 7, beat to 10, down to 7 and finish between marks 10 and 11. As the wind veered the course was changed with the same start, but the windward mark changed to 11 and the rest remaining the same.

The choice of sails was mixed initially, with some skippers choosing to start on ‘B’ and others on ‘A’ but there was very little difference as it was borderline as to which to choose. However, after a while the wind dropped slightly and everybody eventually changed to ‘A’s.

There was some good close racing at times, but with some consistent performances, the overall winner was Buzz Coleman on 7 points, followed by John Newton on 13 points and Dennis Graham third on 21 points.
