RG/DF65 Summer Series #5 11/9/21

There was a decent top suit breeze from the W/WNW almost straight down the lake again for this week, the last practice day before the RG65 Nationals next weekend, where 5 club members have entered (currently making up nearly 30% of the entries!).

Graham Elliott (Electronica) carried on his form from previous weeks, by winning all but one of the races before the break, a run that was interrupted only by Martin Roberts (Pocket Rocket).  After the break, Brad Gibson helmed the Electronica for the remaining races, taking  wins in 3 of the 5 races, losing out to John Brierley (Uno) for the other two.  There were some very close finishes in a number of races, with the finish caller sometimes getting confused with a near ties between 84 and 184.

Meanwhile in the DF65 fleet of two boats, Andrew Peter took the day with 8 wins from Paul Hounslow with 3.

Thanks as usual to Bernie and Jack for running the racing.  Next week will be the first of 3 consecutive Saturday’s of IOM Club racing.
