A bright sunny day but with a cold light wind from the Clubhouse end. Ten sailors using A+ rigs started sailing to suddenly realise although the wind looked steady it was far from it, with various holes strategically placed around the lake causing many problems. So the next race you tried to sail a different course only to find the holes had moved.
Racing at the front was very close with three boats on equal points before discards. The master of the Day was Neil with his four wins. Mike getting off to a good start unfortunately had to leave early. Ten races were held with each skipper acting as RO.
- Neil Westbrook 10pts 4 wins
- John Carlin 15pts 2wins, 2x2nd, 3x3rd and 2x4th (better last race)
- Clive Warren 15pts 2wins, 2x2nd, 3x3rd and 2x4th
- Dave Williams 28pts
- Charles Legg 30pts 1 win
- Stan Metcalf 37pts
- Frans King 48 pts
- Malcolm Harvey 45pts
- John Beech 45pts
- Mike de St Paer 47pts 1 win
Don’t forget that next Saturday (29th April) is the inaugural race afternoon at Birkenhead for the DF95.
