Here are the results from last weekend's St Francis Spring Dinghy Regatta - Spring Dinghy (theclubspot.com). Congrats to Mike H and Rob W for taking out the win in a typically ridiculously competitive fleet. 

Many of you know that the Class now has a pair of GoPro cameras to capture videos from regattas and other Class events, and here is a clip of the winners sailing the top of the beat and beginning of the run in one of the races.

Big thanks to Aaron Ross for managing the cameras and files, and to Mike/Rob and Mike Martin and Caleb Paine for sailing with cameras. 

Installing a mount or mounts on your boat is easy and makes putting a Class camera on your boat quick and easy. Good locations are top of transom, under side of boom, and underneath the ram.  

More videos will eventually be posted. Media is very cool and requires a correspondingly high level of input to manage. Once again, we appreciate your patience with this project.

A great weekend of unbelievably tight racing.

 

Putting the camera on the boat was easy, remembering to turn it on and off….

 

While I have your attention, one of the Brits, Dougal Henshall, has written an amazing book on the entire history of the class. I have been lucky enough to see a drat, it is amazing.

 

To ensure that it gets published he needs an idea of numbers, this book will be a keeper, certainly for the cover photo alone…

 

To register interest, email ord...@davidhenshallmedia.co.uk

 

Thanks,

 

Mike
