Raby Bay Club hosting first event

RBYCWinners SmallL to R: Don Horton RBYC President, Daniel Bergan (2nd), Mike Jefferys (1st), Ray Wilson (3rd)27 June 2021

The very first RBYC regatta, the second round of the Inter Club Tri series for DF65 class, has been run and won. On a day when the weather gods were frowning upon us the conditions turned out to be very favourable for RC sailing. The threat of rain and a cold day deterred a few, but for those who braved the weather forecast they were rewarded with a great day’s sailing and conditions you could only experience at Sovereign Lake, the home of RBYC sailing.

Congratulations to our winners, Mike Jefferys 52 first overall, second place Daniel Bergan 329 from Raby Bay’s own and Ray Wilson 88 in third place. John Heard in 56 from Springfield Lakes also had a fine race win during the day. Overall club points for the day went to Springfield Lakes, from Paradise Lakes and the ever improving Raby Bay Club.

We wish to thank Ron Fawcett and Ian Ashe for acting in the roles of PRO on the day and the QRYA members David Black and Ian Lobley for assisting and providing their expertise. Their help was crucial in making the day run smoothly. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Raby Bay members whose assistance was invaluable and very much appreciated.
