DF 65 Interclub Series Round 2 25th June 2022

Saturday 25th June 2022

Race Report Round 2 DF65 Interclub Series

A cool winter’s day greeted the 19 entrants at Sovereign Lake. Very light WSW breeze moving to the SE during day was the prediction and proved to be correct. The breeze was very shifty throughout the day and finally settled in the early afternoon which made for more consistent sailing conditions to everyone’s enjoyment. The improvement in conditions enabled 15 races to be completed to the delight of the sailors and the PRO.

This was the first round of sailing in the series this year due to weather events and 2 postponements in recent months.

Congratulations to the Springfield Lakes team who won the honours on the day, from a stronger Redlands team with Paradise RYC coming home third.

The racing was made exciting by the conditions with had several race winners and the results showed some close racing and finishes throughout the field.

Another fine performance from Springfield Lakes member and current Qld Champion Mike Jefferys saw him take top honours on the day from fellow club member John heard in second place, and continuing on from his strong performance in the Qld Champs Andrew Gibbs sailing for Paradise RYC in third place.

The PRO on the day Mr Ian Ashe showed his experience as a race officer to have 15 races completed in the sometimes varying conditions and always providing a fair sailing course to test the skills of all the sailors. He was supported by Mr Ian Lobley who calculated the final results and enabled a presentation to the winners at the end of the day. He also provided videos of the races. Thank you to these gentlemen.

The event was made possible by the efforts of the Redlands Radio Sailing Club and its volunteer members who gave their time to help organise and ensure the event ran smoothly.

The RRSC would like to thank all the competitors for taking part in our clubs major event of the year and the friendly competitive nature in which the racing was carried out. All which made a successful DF65 days sailing.
