After a year plus absence, RBRYC returned to the dam for our monthly mid week DF95 event.
A bit chilly earlier, until the sun came from behind the hills with the temperature getting up to a balmy 24 deg by lunch time.
The breeze was from the north in mid A conditions until lunch, and then lightened off. Nine races were completed with a solid fleet of 14 boats supporting the event.
John Hall had his new 95 going very well, achieving three wins and two seconds.
The new concrete parking area was much appreciated.
The courses set by our guest Queensmanian PRO Peter Germein were either one or two laps of the box depending on the strength of breeze.
The back markers struggled a bit today to get through the fleet but as we know in handicap racing - every dog has its day eventually.
Many thanks to PG for his PRO duties and to the core of members who gave their time to get the dam race ready.
A very enjoyable day.
Chocolates this week, go to John Hall, with 3 net points, with Ray Joyce in second, on 11 and Rod Jackman in third, with 13 points.
This weekend is the Marine Models and Wooden Boat Show, on both Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th April. Open between 10am and 3pm. If you have the time on the weekend, it would be really appreciated if you could come along and have a look at the exhibition, in support of not only RBRYC, but also MBYC, Wooden Boat Guild Tasmania and Marine Modellers Association of Tasmania.
On Sunday, we also have round 1 of the RM Winter Scratch Series, this week starting at 11am, as advertised on the RBRYC website calendar, to coincide a bit better with the above show.
