DragonForce Winter Series #2 15/1/20

Sailing this week was conducted from the North bank due to the SSW breeze giving little breeze close to the South shoreline.  A course was set using existing marks and a new start line.  Initially this gave something approaching a beat to the first mark , but as the day progressed the wind cane more often from the SW and increased in strength changing it into a fetch or even a reach.  This increase in strength gave some tricky conditions for everyone that was in their A+ rigs, where it became essential to keep the boat moving and anticipate the gusts, lulls and change in direction.  After 10 races, John won out again to finish ahead of Peter, as even though they both had 4 wins, John had the better consistency and was rarely placed out of the top 3.  Richard Robinson took the other two wins and this helped him into a well deserved third place.

Thanks must once again go to Ernie for running this weeks racing.  There is racing for the RG65 and DF65 fleets this Saturday (18th January) starting at 12:00. Everyone welcome.
