Texas Df Series #5 White Rock Cup

This regatta report was written by Chuck LeMahieu
White Rock Cup 2016
In a stunning debut and return to competitive racing the TRYC’s own David Eldridge captured First Place in the DF65 portion of the White Rock Cup! David had just built his DF65, and in what would kindly be describe as challenging conditions  fought through the light air chop and dominated the top guns in the Tx DF Series!
It was tough sledding and David managed to stay ahead of ace skippers Chris Macaluso and Eric Rosenbaum!
Leading the Masters was our visitor from Arizona/ California and veteran skipper Hap McGill! Hap was also racing a DF65 for the first time and stayed tough and competitive in the light winds and rolling chop
Overall Chuck LeMahieu maintains the lead, but others are gaining, and once again Fernando Campoverde and Fred Sheldon are battling for the top spot in the Masters Series, but several other skippers are lurking just below in the standings!
At the end of the day, 4 skippers who just sailed in the DF65 portion of the White Rock Cup  were eligible for a drawing of a new DragonFlite 95 courtesy of Dragon Sailing North America! In a coin flip, the boat was won by Bruce Huckaba!
