Congratulations to Steve Treadwell with his Dufour 34e Performance “Irene” for winning the Association RTI Trophy for being the highest placed finisher of our members. He was also placed first in the particular Division. In this year’s race every competitor was hampered by very light winds. Of the 1210 entrants just 283 managed to finish within the time limit so a very creditable performance.
Winner of the 2018 David Eyre Trophy from the Dufour Association is Art Whitehead. The David Eyre Trophy is awarded by the Association Committee for the best article published in Dufour News during the year. The article “A Steep Learning Curve” was an example to us all and maybe reminds us all of our first steps in sailing!
