7 skippers, all sailing RG65’s made it to the start line for the latest round of the RG65/DF65 Winter Series.
The wind was pretty much from the club house with some massive gusts that came from anywhere between the club house and the houses giving everyone something to think about.
Peter Baldwin laid the marks for a windward/leeward course with what was to be an excellent start line and 6 races were completed before the break with Peter and Graham taking 3 wins each, Graham was sailing his newly acquired Argon, Peter sailing his excellent Uno.
Racing stayed close for the second half with Martin now coming into the frame and also John Carlin sailing a borrowed Pocket Rocket getting a few decent results. In the end it was Graham that narrowly got the win by a single point.
Most opted to sail in there reduced height A rigs with a mixture of conventional and swing rigs. Race winners on the day were, Graham Elliott (Argon) 6, Peter Baldwin (Uno) 5 and Martin Roberts (Pocket Rocket) 1.
Many thanks to Bernie for starting, finishing and scoring and also Jack for once again making drinks for everyone.
