An excellent days sailing for the 4th race in the RG/DF Summer series at Birkenhead today. Sunny and windy from the clubhouse end with big enough wind shifts to make the racing interesting. Swing rigs and conventional rigs were both used in the gusty conditions.
4 Uno’s competed in the RG65 class and 2 DF65’s joined in as well. Although John Brierley won 9 of the races, the finishing was extremely close in many races, with the result only decided on the last leg to the finishing line keeping our RO (and part-time photographer) John Carlin busy. Dave Williams and Neil Westbrook were so close all afternoon, that they were tied on points and discards at the end with the tie only broken in Dave’s favour with his win in race 8.
- John Brierley Uno 84 8pts. ( 9 wins)
- Dave Williams Uno 33 20 pts ( 1win)
- Neil Westbrook Uno 03 20pts
- Charles Legg Uno 26 28pts
- Andrew Peter 919
- Robin (visitor) 0
10 races sailed.
