RG65 Social Racing #1 11/7/20

Five RG65 skippers were treated to a super sunny afternoon sail in a decent top suit breeze of 6 to 10 knots with a few stronger gusts from the NNW.   John Brierley set out his stall for the afternoon winning four of the first 6 races before there was a short break for drinks, with Neil Westbrook and and Peter Baldwin taking the other two wins.  After initial problems with a wayward receiver and missing the first race, Dave Williams was loaned a replacement and went well to gain a second in race 2.

After the break, John continued his wining ways with another two and a further one each for Neil and Peter.  Alan Watkinson came good in the very last race, gaining a second after some early problems with rig selection and setup.  This gave John the overall win after 10 races, with Peter second and Neil third.  Many thanks to Bernie for acting as RO and scorer for the afternoon.
