DF65 Social Racing #14 18/8/21

For this, the first Wednesday race day after 8 weeks of lake closure, 13 sailors signed up and 12 arrived to sail. Unfortunately, Charles Legg had electrical problems right from the start so could not sail, and Neil Westbrook very kindly agreed to act as race officer and was assisted by Charles.

With a brisk West North Westerly breeze, ‘A’ rigs were chosen, and after a single lap first race, just to check we had all remembered how to sail, Neil set a two lap full length course, and we managed 8 races.

In the blustery conditions, with boats occasionally falling over, race positions changed frequently, and the close racing gave everyone a reminder of how enjoyable it is to be sailing again.
