DF65 Social Racing #6 30/9/20

A dull and chilly day greeted the eleven sailors for the weekly DF65 social sail. The wind straight down the lake from the clubhouse was of sufficient strength to warrant B suit. Unfortunately Charles was having boat problems and was not able to make the start. A decision was made for each skipper to drop out of a race to monitor the start line and score the boats in at the end of the race. David P sailed  his new boat to great effect, taking four races. He did not have it all his own way with Neil and John putting up a determined fight. The results indicate how close the racing was, with the final leg of the race seeing boats lose several positions due to a poor choice of tack, ending with very close calls on the finish line. Everyone sailed 9 races with 2 discards. Thanks to all the RO’s and to Charles for his help.
