DF 65 Winter Series 2

1st Dec 2018

Eleven skippers turned out for this the last 65 event of the year, and had to endure light winds and rain showers all day.

A figure eight course was set of two laps, and we did eight races before the light faded. A+ rig was the sail of choice if you had one, but the A rig came more into play as the wind strengthened a little later on.

Garry was in dominant form taking six bullets, and two seconds, easily putting him top of the tree, with Chris in second spot.

Thanks to Peter for RO duties.

So that’s it for this year regarding the 65, we are back in the New Year on 5th January at 12 noon for the Winter Series 3 event.

DF 95 Winter Series 1

10th Nov 2018
The first event in our Winter Series saw nine skippers turning out, in what was mainly a dry day with a few light showers, and a light breeze, so it was A rigs all round. A figure eight course was set with two laps per race, fourteen were had in the time before the light faded.
It wasn`t until the fifth race before the full complement of skippers were all in the same race, due to breakdowns of one sort or another. Gordon was in good form taking eight bullets in the day and took the honours from Chris and David.
It was good to welcome Mike back after a short absence and he fared well finishing mid table, even with having problems with his winch. For Eric it was a day to forget as his new Kawasaki green boat was reluctant to play most of the time.
Our next DF 95 outing is on Saturday the 15th December at 12 noon.
