Wednesday 6 June – Dragon Force 65 Racing


The 6 Dragon Force sailors on the water this morning, benefitted from a fairly consistent breeze, by Lakeside standards, and the bright sunshine that we had expected.


The racing was kept very relaxed, but was competitive nonetheless.  I dropped by, for 40 minutes, and was really pleased to see Mike Hyland (05) back in action, and had the opportunity to meet Michael Thomas with his newly setup DF65 (not yet registered), and Mike Pearson, who was also checking things out to see if radio sailing will suit him.  He thinks it will!  It was also good to see Jim Cheek (730) after his shining example at the DF65 Nationals in Gosport.

Maurice, Peter L, Colin S (still looking for a One Metre!), were also there, all keeping well packed together in most of the racing that I saw.
