Bribie Radio Controlled Yachts Radio sailing wrap up for March 2024 Dragon Force Model 65 (DF65) Racing

Results for March 

March 3: Seven sailors competed in probably the worst weed conditions yet encountered on Sandstone Lake. Most had weed entrapment at least once which led to some frustration. 

A hot and humid temperature (31.5 degrees C), with E-SE winds varying from 1 to something around 5 knots did not help the score sheet. However, 11 races were completed.

March 10: Four intrepid sailors braved the horrid conditions at the lake this afternoon. Moderate to severe winds and squally rain saw the meet abandoned after only four races.
