DragonForce Spring Series #3 17/4/19

A total of seven helms turned out for this weeks DF65 racing on Wednesday morning.  A light breeze straight down the lake from the clubhouse allowed RO Dave Williams to set a good length course using nearly the whole length of the lake, giving overtaking opportunities for those that spotted the shifts.  A mix of both one and two lap races were sailed with a few course changes just to mix things up.  Winning the start line was, as usual, the recipe for success as whoever arrived first at the windward mark normally went on to win the race, even with two laps.  After nine races and two discards the final results were:

  1. Peter Baldwin                11 pts
  2. Neil Westbrook             18 pts
  3. Andrew Peter                20 pts
  4. Alan Watkinson            24 pts
  5. Colin Deakin                  42 pts     1x3rd
  6. Derek Matthews           42 pts     0x3rd
  7. Bob Davies                      45 pts

Many thanks to Dave Williams for giving up his racing and running an excellent mornings racing.
