With a very light and flukey south easterly breeze, A+ rigs were installed on all except two boats. [167 & 53]. We managed to sail eight single lap races, and the race positions were extremely closely fought and hard won in the sometimes difficult wind conditions.
Guest sailor Guy Roberts from Stratford sailed well in his first ever DF65 races, managing a third in race 4, even with a reduced ‘A’ rig. And Sally doing extremely well overall, even though she had to do her ‘ Cinderella’ flit again, missing the last two races.
Finally, James Douglas did a grand job as race officer today, so many thanks to him for running the racing.
A reminder to all DF65 sailors that the Saturday series of RG/DF65 races are open to any DF65 sailors who wish to compete, using a slightly shorter course for the DF’s than the RG’s and separate scores kept. The afternoon usually has very good racing for all, if there are sufficient numbers in both classes on the water.
As a secondary reminder, there will be a one off Practice tune up session of racing for DF95’s on the morning of Saturday 11th September starting at approximately 10am. Please register via the Upcoming Events list so that we know who is likely to attend.
