Dragon Force 65 Sunday Championship Series

Round 1 of the Autumn Dragon Forde 65 Sunday Champion Series took place on a partially cloudy Sunday 7th October 2017. The wind was primarily from the WNW at about 6 – 8 mph and so it was a windward/leeward course. Because a power boat was being used at the north end of the lake the first race was left of centre of the lake, starting between marks 7 and 8, a beat to 6, downwind to 9, beat to 6, downwind to 9 and finish between 6 and the bank. However, when the powerboat disappeared and because there was a slightly better wind, the course was moved to the north end of the lake, starting between marks 4 and 5, a beat to 1, downwind to 4, a beat to 1, downwind to 4 and finish between 1 and the bank.

We welcomed two potential new members, namely Geoff Howell and Jay Daltrey (junior) and Chris Aldred who has recently purchased a DF65. With wind coming over and round the Fort creating some difficult wind shifts, no one skipper dominated the day. However, Angela Mears with 2 wins and greater consistency was the overall winner on the day with 12 points. Dennis Graham with 2 wins, Glenn Meekcoms, Dave Bland and James Beale, all with one win fought very hard for second and third, with Glenn eventually taking second on 17 points, followed by Dennis Graham third on 19 points and Dave Bland a close fourth on 20 points, and James dropping away towards the end.
