Nine skippers faced the possibility of rain & light winds at Watermead on Sunday, however the wind was fair most of the time (5-6mph from the North) and the rain did not come through until we were almost finished, so a good day was had by all.

Noel Donaldson & Roger Dunklin fought it out at the front of the fleet most of the day, with only 6 points separating the next 3 skippers.

The final result after 14 races and two discards was, Noel Donaldson (29) with 13 points, Roger Dunklin (66) with 21 points, Wayne Stobbs (542) & Sid Hunt (129) joint 3rd with 45 points, Keith Jackson (27) with 51 points, Philip Hardy (293) with 83 points, Peter Wood (14) with 90 points & Peter Pulford with 96 points.

Many thanks to Clive and all local club members and to those who travelled from Portsmouth and Milton Keynes for supporting the RG65 open events.

Watch the RG65 web site over the next month or two when we will confirm the "RG65 Traveller series" for 2016, and the RG65 Nationals dates & Venue, so plenty of time to get the dates in your dairy.

Please support this excellent class, and help it to grow in UK as it is worldwide.
