Optimist Fleet on Tour Saturday 30th August

This weekend saw round nine of the RYA North-West travellers Trophy at Redesmere sailing club. Representing Dee were Max Spedding and Charlie Ewing. The weather was perfect with a light breeze. There were eight Oppies and approximately 30 Toppers (Alex Harris take note).

There were three races throughout the day with emphasis on having fun and meeting new and old friends. Max Spedding was contesting first place in all three races whilst Charlie was busy fending off the rest of the fleet for third.

It was very hard for the dads too with Pete being attacked by Charlie younger brother Max all day and Charlie’s dad got very upset when his sandwiches (still wrapped in tin foil) was scavenged by the local mutt.

With three races completed the Dee boys did very well with Max Spedding coming a very close second and Charlie a very respectable third.

Charlie, Max and the winner Tom ( Budworth SC ).

Well done boys.
