Event Reports

Two event reports for you on this Monday morning.

First up from a couple of weekends ago we have a DF95 open event at West Lancs YC.

Alan Tickle writes –

“Most competitors had a challenge to get round windward mark because of swirling wind at a steady 10knt+, with everyone sailing in A rig. Alan Fernhurst and Alan Tickle both unfortunately had a few boat winch problems. There was a  short rain shower about half-way through the racing but otherwise the day was dry.  With the cold temperatures and wind chill factor everyone agreed to finish 20 mins early after 16 races had been completed. It was good to see for the first time at WLYC, competitors from Rudyard Lake SC and South lakes MYC and welcome back those from Birkenhead and Fairhaven plus WLYC.”

The next event is on Sunday 19th Feb 23 with racing starting at 10:00 until 15:00. This is valuable training opportunities for the  DFTT On 4th & 5th Mar at WLYC (see the MYA Events Calendar for further details and entry.

Final podium results:

John Brierley     Birkenhead RSPC      1st

Dave Fowler     Fairhaven Lake MBC  2nd

Alan Watkinson Birkenhead                 3rd

The second report is from Paul Rudkin at Askern and concerns the rescheduled IOM winter series event at the club.

Paul writes –

“After the disappointment of abandoning the MYA NR IOM Winter Series Round 3 on the 21st Jan due to unexpected ice we were happy to re arrange for yesterday 28th. Attendance was down on the previous week which was not surprising but a good mixed ability fleet non the less.
We arrived to see some very thin ice and no wind. The safety boat soon dispersed the ice and by 10.30am there was sufficient wind to start racing. 16 races were completed in mainly light winds and I think enjoyed by all. Thanks to Brian and David for ROD duties.”
Results were
John Tushingham  – 1st
Craig Raistrick – 2nd
Dave Darwell – 3rd
