Live Results for DF65s

DF65 Qld Championship event at Springfield this weekend. 22 Entrants including one overseas sailor from Germany. Should be some keen competition between the top DF65 sailors in the State, including Greg Torpy (360 Sails), who recently won the National DF 65 Invitational Challenge at Emerald Lakes in May, Mike Jefferys from PRYC, Paul Martin from Sydney and Ray and Andrew Wilson from Wynnum Manly. Unfortunately missing from the event is Charmaine and John White, who have recently moved to Tassie. As everyone knows Charmaine was a major force in getting the DF65 started in Queensland and the "Dragon Lady", with her black sails, will be missed at the weekend

Live results of the event will be available from start of racing on Saturday on the QRYA Website

This system was setup by Sean Wallis, ( ARYA President), and implemented by  David Black (QRYA President and Queensland's Chief scorer). Springfield Lakes can be a very fickle and fluky proposition and all entrants will be hoping for a decent breeze. The forecast is for North West winds. The event is being hosted by Springfield Lakes Maritime Modellers who have promised a top class lunch on both days.

Mike Jeffereys was spotted at the Lake today practicing his starts, and he says he will be there tomorrow as well, bring it on Mike.

For those new to sailing at the Lake here is a link to some DF65 sailing at Springfield in 2017.
