DF65 Autumn Series #16 15th Nov 2017

Nine sailors arrived to find a flat calm lake but very slight wind. One was unable to withstand the pressure of sailing in light winds and opted to be Race Officer! (Dave W)

A short course was set and one race held. A decision was made to have a cup of tea and to see what happened with the wind. Thirty minutes later a course was set away from the clubhouse and 7 more races were held with slightly more wind available.
