Two great days of sailing for SCYA’s newest fleet of Model Yacht’s.
These two models bring out all kinds of boaters from the very experienced to the young novice and make for a very even class race. Racer like Steve Pearce from the UK making this truly an international event, others from Lake Gregory and San Diego, locals from Mason Park (Orange County Model Sailing Club), and El Dorado Park (Helmsmen Model Yacht Club) and other local Southern California Yacht Clubs all enjoyed two days of great outdoor model yacht sailing.
The DF65 sailed at Mason Park in Irvine on Saturday the 8th of February and had had 12 skippers and completed 12 races. The Winner (Larry Grant 85)) walked away with 6 first, 3 seconds and 1 third, what a day. The others Placing were Mike Crider (19), Mike Shaw (38), and Jim Black (207).
The DF95 Fleet showed 33 racers on the first day at El Dorado Park in Long Beach. After a heavy rainfall only one race was completed so they cancelled the remaining races for the day and waited till Sunday February 23rd to try it again.
This time it was a wonderful day for a walk in the park for Skipper Larry Grant (85)
who again took home the SCYA Winner’s Trophy with 3 first 4 seconds and a third. The fleet used an Odd and Even race format that would split the fleet in half to avoid over crowing on the pond. Finishing Second was Mike Schachter (88), Others winning trophies were E. Allen (228), K. McMartin (20), J Black, (307), A. Greco(795), M. Shaw (38).
