....this is the question the punters passing the DBSC at 2pm will be asking themselves this Saturday.
The answer: The Dick Tyrell Trophy race. This is the most prestigious race the club runs each season, and it can be realistically won by by EVERY member of the club on the day. It is a handicap start, and with the right weather conditions, weight, tactics and skills it is an open contest.
Dear Leader may be unbeatable in 7.65 knot N-E breeze with a run out tide, but then in a +25 knot westerly, a 100kg radial sailor on the maximum handicap doing granny-tacks might be the winning combination. If you are between these two, then turn up because you have a chance to win!
The day starts early with Blackies' Learn to Race Session at 9am. Racing starts at 2pm sharp for the Dick Tyrell Trophy (followed by the scratch event). Finally, at 7pm we have our Christmas Party where you will be able to have the most fun in Sydney without the prospect of seeing DBSCer Dr G at St Vincents later in the evening.
Look forward to seeing all the boats out this Saturday.
