On a gorgeous sunny spring morning, today, we had 10 Dragon Force 65s on the water, for 2 full hours of good tight racing.   We had one new skipper in Jonathan Blake, racing Mark Jenkins’ DF65, and though he didn’t feel he was doing so well, he completed the course each time,  not far behind the pack, which is quite an achievement.  Anyway, Jonathan, welcome to the radio yacht racing ‘fold’.

We didn’t keep any records,  but it was good to see that the early finishers seemed to change around quite a bit, and with regular changes it wind direction, there was plenty of room for good tactics.

Here are a fewphotos that I managed to squeeze in between trying to keep myself on course.
