DF65 Social Racing 2022

The wind today was not as strong as expected but ended up near the top of A suit range. Paul our RO set a full length course starting at the top end of the lake with the windward mark at the clubhouse, port to a spreader then downwind through the gate to the finish in its usual place.

A couple of general recalls and a few individual recalls were the result of sudden gusts just on the final few seconds of countdown. The first leg of the course was a challenge as to which tack to be on with no consistency of the wind, bunching at the windward mark caused a few problems with more to come on the run with severe broaching. Mike and John were able to handle the conditions to their advantage taking 7 wins between them with just 1 point between them at the end with a similar position between Richard and Derek.

Thanks again to Paul Little for volunteering to be RO and giving us 10 races.
