DF65 Social Racing #1 26/8/20

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:

  1. Peter Baldwin 63 12pts 5 wins
  2. Mike de St Paer 35 23pts 2 wins and 3x2nd
  3. Alan Watkinson 373 23pts 2 wins and 2x2nd
  4. Neil Westbrook 03 28pts
  5. Dave Williams 233 36pts 1 win
  6. Andrew Peter 19 47pts
  7. Derek Matthews 57 48pts
  8. Richard Walker 39 49pts
  9. Sally Collings 129 52pts
  10. 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.
