DF65 Social Racing 2022 (21/9/22)

6 keen sailors arrived to be greeted by a slight wind from the clubhouse end. A course was set from the middle of the lake to a starboard rounding of the windward mark, starboard around the spreader, downwind to a port rounding of the start mark to a finish by the clubhouse.

All starts were without recalls, as as to be called back would have been disastrous. The rounding of the windward mark in the light wind caught out several skippers with penalty turns in abundance. In most races the last 30 meters was the most challenging with the clear leader becoming becalmed and the chasing boats overtaking. Special mention of new member Frans King on his debut race, managing a second and third. Thanks go to RO Dave Williams who managed to run 9 races.
