RNSA(P) Dinghy Handicap Series Evening 1

Portsmouth - 11 Jun 18 Dinghies

Thursday evenings - any dinghy handicap racing

Five intrepid RNSA sailors set out on Thursday in the first of five RNSA(P) Dinghy Handicap race evenings. In a light SSE breeze the two Fusions, Laser, Laser Radial and Hartley 15 completed 2 close races around a triangular course in Portsmouth harbour. Lt Alex Thompson (Laser) and RC(Dinghies) Cdr Gav Marshall (Hartley 15) remained close throughout with each taking a victory. Cdr Andy Wood (Fusion) finished 3rd in both races while Musn. Brian Tregaskes (Fusion) and Lt Cdr Ian Watson (Laser Radial) each took a 4th place.

The second instalment of the series is planned for this Thursday (14 Jun) with subsequent races on 28 Jun, 12 Jul & 19 Jul. In an amendment to the Sailing Instructions, the aspiration is to conduct 2 races each evening with up to 4 discards available in the series so no need to race every time – it’s all still to play for! At least 5 boats are expected again for this week so why not come down and get involved – 1630 at the sailing centre to start rigging and first warning signal at 1730. Boats can be booked via Lt Matt Irwin on or you can turn up on Thursday and sail any of the available boats.
