Ten sailors gathered today for the first DF65 social racing day when results were taken. Charles Legg very kindly offered to record finishing results after finding that he was missing a keel boat when assembling his boat. All but one of the fleet opted to use the A Rig as the breeze was a gusty 10 to 15 knot breeze straight down the lake. Peter Baldwin took the first four races before Mike de St Paer took his first of two wins in Races 5 and then another in 10, followed by Alan Watkinson in Races 6 and 7. Peter had another win in Race 8 and was just beaten across the finish by Dave Williams in Race 9. After 10 races, the final results had some very close points finishes and four race winners were:
- Peter Baldwin 63 12pts 5 wins
- Mike de St Paer 35 23pts 2 wins and 3x2nd
- Alan Watkinson 373 23pts 2 wins and 2x2nd
- Neil Westbrook 03 28pts
- Dave Williams 233 36pts 1 win
- Andrew Peter 19 47pts
- Derek Matthews 57 48pts
- Richard Walker 39 49pts
- Sally Collings 129 52pts
- Chris Weston 194 68pts
Racing will take place again next Wednesday with a race limit of 13 boats.
There is also racing for DF and RG65 on Saturday 29th starting at 11:00.
