RNSA(P) Thursday Dinghy Series Final

Portsmouth - 23 Jul 18 Dinghies

Fifth and final evening of racing for Portsmouth Dinghy Sailors in the series

Thursday night saw 7 boats out for the final races of the series. Lee Bichard of the RN Watersports Centre (RNWC) kindly ran the two races in a light South Westerly breeze. With High Water half way through racing the boats were able to race short lap courses over the mud towards UHAF. Pat Smythe (Bosun) scored two decent results as did Lt Alex 'Bumpercar' Thompson despite numerous infringements. Lt Cdr Ian Watson ventured out of the Fusion and into the Laser 2000 for the evening for something a little more exhilarating.

Lt Alex Thompson emerged victorious in the Series overall narrowly ahead of Pat Smythe and Lt Cdr Ian Watson, with only 5 points separating the top 3 places. Results grids are available below. BZ to all of those who took part in the series and our thanks go to the RNWC staff for maintaining the boats throughout. Next event is the Fleet Commander's Cup on Wed 12 Sep - last opportunity for a big Bosun fleet race prior to them being retired next year. Details are on the RNSA Website and Royal Navy Dinghy Sailors facebook page. Any questions then contact Lt Matt Irwin on
