Dinghy Regatta 2017 - Pics

Here is a sample of the photos taken by Gary on the safety boat, giving a flavour of the fun had by a total of 18 boats who turned out for the rescheduled dinghy regatta on 23 September. The boats were divided into two fleets - the "Longhorn" fleet of 12 boats with relatively experienced crews and the "Greenhorn" fleet of 8 juniors and those new to racing. 

The Longhorn fleet was won (yet again!) by Tim and Carol Jones in their RS200 Puffin and the Greenhorn fleet by Rory Banks and Ross Dempster in a Feva. Full results of what was very close racing are available here for the Longhorns and here for the Greenhorns. Light winds meant there was only one capsize (in the Longhorns), but this provided much amusement for all concerned.

 You can see all these photos and many more in higher resolution here in Gary's Google album.
