DF65 Social Racing 2023 – 21/6/23

Another warm day with a gentle wind from the top of the lake. A welcome turnout of eventually 15 boats all using A+ rigs, Neil set the usual course but without the gate.

Clive took the first win pushed all the way by Alan. Then John Brierley, after his weekend success got into his stride taking the next two. Andrew Potter was unlucky to catch an under water obstacle, so donned the waders to initiate a search. He took the next two races. The wind then decided to play tricks by disappearing completely at times creating a very unpredictable course. As ten races had been held it was decided to call a halt.

Due to there being more competitors than races the average score system had to be put in place. As the scores show below there was some very close racing between several groups. Unfortunately Martin and Paul were not able to compete in all races hence the high scores.
