DF65 Social Racing #27 (17/11/21)

A brisk WNW breeze, blustery but dry, saw 16 sailors arrive for another well attended and exciting mid-week DF65 race. ‘A’ Rigs were in order, to contend with some big gusts to start the day, moderating slightly then steadying for the final two lap race,with 10 races completed overall. Don MacKinnon did us proud as self- elected Race Officer for the day, and as the scores show, it was a very closely contested day’s racing, which is proving to be the case for most Wednesday races, as the skill levels of newer members improve.

Birkenhead Radio Sailing Club was also well represented at the national DF65 & DF95 TT circuit event at West Lancs YC in Southport last weekend, with 9 BRSC members competing at the event, fielding more members than any other MYA Club for the final event of the year, with 3 BRSC members finishing in the Top Ten overall results for 2021.
