Sail Division – New Member, Chris Averis

Chris Averis has been a member of the Club in the past, and has been a regular spectator in the last few months. He now has his Marblehead ready to race, and is working on his One Metre. He intends to join for 2019, if he hasn’t done so already. Welcome Chris.

Here he is with his very nice PARADOX.

Dragon Flite 95

As you will have heard, we plan to adopt the Dragon Flite 95, and start racing on alternate Sundays, from march 2019. This is very much a trial, but the DF95 is becoming established around the Country, and is very popular as another restricted class yacht.

Some members will not have seen a DF95, so here is a photo of mine, alongside my DF65. Although racing will not start until March, I hope to bring my ’95’ to Lakeside, most Wednesdays, for a bit of casual sailing on the side, to make sure it is working OK. Anyone who is interested in the DF95 will be welcome to try mine out.

It does not come supplied with the spots, you might be pleased to know!

Of course, we hope that the DF95 will attract new member a well, so please spread the word.
