DF95 Sail Day – Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron

DF95 Sail Day – Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron - 28th April 2018.

10 Skippers from as far north as the Sunshine Coast and as far west as Ipswich, attended the inaugural DF95 sail day at Moreton – sponsored by Hobby Warehouse. Three boats were supplied by club members for visitors to experience the DF95's - thanks to Dennis and Kevin from the Moreton Club.

The morning session was scratch racing with some skippers racing their boats for the first time, in conditions that varied from light to 15 kts. in a testing southerly breeze.  The afternoon session was handicap racing.

At the lunch break, Dennis Culver generously gave his time to share his experiences with preparation and maintenance of these boats and it was appreciated by all.  Many of the tips he gave will no doubt make sure that his fellow sailors enjoy their boats more than they do already.

At the end of the racing the prizes donated by Hobby Warehouse were distributed by lucky draw to the remaining competitors.

Above are the winners of the sponsored prizes.  Kevin, Roger, Dennis and Geoff.  We thank Hobby Warehouse for their generous support.

Many thanks to all who turned up to support the event. Moreton now has a fleet of 6 plus and will be holding competition race days on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.  The DF95 group sails every Sunday at Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron, Griffith rd Newport from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Visitors are welcome.
