Dragonforce 65?

Recommended Posts

An update for this Saturday

 

Some DF95's are come out.

 

There has been a good response to this regatta with people new to radio sailing.

 

First we will have a season on setting the boats up by Mike and Greame from Kapiti Radio Yacht Club, they have been sailing the 65's for a while, so there will be be some handy hints.

 

Secondly I will go thru the simplified version of the Racing Rules i.e. the "Ten Racing Rules Commandments."

 

Then we will start some sailing, line and mark foy starts will discussions between racing.

 

And the all important last race for a bottle of Appletons.

I have this V5 gneek. It;s got that SS adjustment where the V6 you have had a plastic version.

From putting the V5 next to a V6 boat I see no measurement differences.

You're welcome to borrow it.

 

Sloop, they be the same or ???? any idea?

We had 25 DF65's and 1 RG65 on the pond yesterday......and that's what all we had......no wind. :cry:

 

The old saying....."it's never like this" is true as normally the breeze does come in by the afternoon. :wtf:

 

We started of with a chat session by Graeme Perry from Kapiti talking about set the rigs up pity there was no breeze to test the settings.

 

We got 4 races away with the boys from Wattle using the club boats filled the 1st 3 places, a set of sails sponsored by Karl Stachel of Power Sails was give to Cliff Dixon (Papamoa). Just goes to show good IOM skippers can sail other boats. 10 in the first 13 places.  ;-)

 

The 5th race was the "Rum Race" with Mark winning the bottle, and then gave it to the 4 boys from Kapiti....I believe it do not survive the night at Taupo. :oops:
