Texas DF65 Series Regatta #7

From a sailing standpoint, it doesn’t get any better than the weather we had at the RG65 Region 5 Championship on Saturday in Lewisville TX! We had 15 boats sail, in 17 races , and we had including quite a few new skippers  to the fleet!
Winds out of the south at 10-15 and a really long course made for some exciting racing. Despite threatening clouds, the temps were great and we never got rained on.This event was a mixed fleet with Open RG65s sailing with the DragonForce 65s so we broke out the DF65s for a separate category. Team Houston dominated the DragonForce 65 scoring with Chris Macaluso winning the day, sailing on B rig half the day, closely followed by Bruce Huckaba, Craig Scott, & Ferrnando Campoverde capturing the top 4 spots in the DF65 Series scoring. Mauricio Dantas started the day sailing his home built RG65 but he ended up switching to his Df65 after race 6   so we scored him with DNS race 1-5  for TX DF65 Series points. TRYC welcomed our new transplant from Florida , Carlos Suarez, who borrowed my DF65 and did really well! The most exciting thing about this regatta was the number of new skippers we had sailing for their first RC sailing regatta ever! Ken Young from Fort Worth, Willie Smith from Carrollton, and two ladies Caryl Hugdahl and my fantastic wife Carrie LeMahieu. This brings our total number of skippers sailed in the Series up to 48 skippers this year!!! Our next TX DF65 Series event is in Houston October 15… hope to see ya’ll there!
