It seems the sailing councillor Duncan Dey has topped his division’s championship in Ballina.
The Richmond River Sailing and Rowing Club season 2015/16 ended on Sunday 29 May with a beautiful light sou’east breeze.
Duncan sails his RS100 Casper in the gennaker division for boats that launch an asymmetric spinnaker out the front of the hull.
The club has three other divisions of boats including trailerable yachts, catamarans and monohulls.
The next sailing season starts on the first Sunday in September but there will also be winter sailing days.
Taking one for the team, Echo drudge Janice tried her skills in the RS100 and managed to stay dry, safe and happy on the river after the race. It’s onwards and upwards from here!
