Winter Series 2016: Trophies!
Congratulations to club members John McIntosh and Derek Andrews! They achieved a 3rd place podium finish in the Dinghy fleet 2 Royal Tay Yacht Club Winter Racing series, following a consistent performance over the 8 race series, including a win in race 7 ahead of 17 other boats.
Congratulations also to Kerstin Jorna and Adele McConnachie for winning the Fastest Female Helm trophy, coming in 10th overall out of 31 boats entered.
This was the reward for the excellent participation from DSC members over the series, which ran every Sunday from 23rd October to 11th December. The club had 7 boats entered with many members of all abilities enjoying an extended sailing season, a lot of fun in a variety of sailing conditions and improving their sailing skills competing with sailors from 7 different clubs. This bodes well for participation levels in our own club racing series next year which, mixed in with our many cruising events, is fun and good training for members of all abilities to get involved in.
Here is a picture of the happy winners:
