DAC Results, Scratch Racing, Thu 13th June 2024

Dobroyd RC Lasers 20240613

Fifteen DAC Sailors came along for our Scratch racing yesterday.

We had welcome dry conditions with a light Sou’Westerly breeze at 5 to 11 Km/Hr., (3 to 6 Knots). Not too bad for a Winter’s days as the temperature did reach 16oC

We all started with “B” sails with a late change to “A” ‘s.

Once again, it was handy having a full tide with the course set in front of the Deck.

Peter Burton set a cracking pace with 3 wins in the first 4 races. Peter continued with 1 more and all places to score 14 points and a comfortable first place for the day. Vying for second overall, Robin Tickner scored 28 points with 2 wins and 2 places. Graham Brown was always in the hunt with all high finishes but just could not cross the line first. Graham scored 29 points with 5 places, coming third. The ladies dominated the next group. Karen Paterson, Judy Evans and Narelle Derwent each won a race and really locked in places 4, 5 and 6 to lead the rest by quite a distance. Brendan Hones scored a comfortable win in race 5 with only 4 places remaining for the rest of the fleet.

Again, the quality of sailing was high with some great duels over all races. One had to be sailing well to score well.

Race winners were Peter Burton 4, Robin Tickner 2, Karen Paterson 1, Judy Evans 1, Narelle Derwent 1 and Brendan Hones 1.

Peter Burton took the honours for the day to win 1st place on 14 points.

Robin Tickner finished in 2nd place on 28 points.

Graham Brown finished in 3rd place with 29 points.

The Club Championship now has Graham Brown in front from Phil Stevenson and Robin Tickner.

Our next Sail day is Thursday 20th June for a Scratch Event.
