Next Week (27/3/19) will be the last of the DF65 Winter Series as Race 13.
7 sailors turned out this week with a light S to SSE breeze which came and went from 2 to 10 knots. Rain stopped play for 5 minutes in the middle of racing when a few unprepared sailors donned waterproofs and transmitter covers before resuming. A good length course and 2 lap races meant that there was time to regain lost ground (and lose a good position as well!). Only 7 races were held due to the stoppage and length of each race.
1st John Brierley 5 pts
2nd Peter Baldwin 9 pts
3rd Neil Westbrook 16 pts
4th Alan Watkinson 17 pts (2 x 2nd)
5th Andrew Peter 17 pts (0 x 2nd)
6th Dave Williams 23 pt
7th Colin Deakin 26 pts
