DF65 Social Racing 2023 – 8/2/23

A good A+ wind from the Clubhouse greeted the 12 sailors, a long course was set using the full lake with the start at the top end, down to the Clubhouse windward mark to port spreader to port then a long run to the gate at the top end of the lake with the finish halfway between mark and finish post.

Simon started well with a 3rd and 5th then unfortunately electrical problems took over and he had to retire. A welcome return by Stan showed he still is a force to be reckoned with taking two 2nd places. As usual the top places were contested by John, Alan and Neil with John taking overall honours. Relatively new member Clive again showed he is one to watch taking 2 wins and always finishing in the top half.

With each sailor as RO in turn, and with Simon retiring, 11 races were held.
