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.

DF 65 Winter Series 1

20th October 2018
A good turnout of twelve skippers made it a great start for the first event in our Winter Series. A fine dry day for a change with a light breeze, was an ideal opportunity for those who had them to try out the A+ rig, now allowed in events at the club. Only Garry and Bob out of the twelve so far had acquired the sail, and the difference in performance was reflected in the results, with Garry taking nine bullets out of the eleven raced. John P as usual was well placed using the stock A sail, with Bob close behind.
We completed eleven races at a leisurely pace with a break in-between for a brew. On what was akin to a pentagon shape course of two laps, changing the start line a few times for the wind change.
All got through the day without major failures, except for Ken with winch problems in his second race, this put him out for the day, and was the last thing he needed having already arrived a little late due to a start time mix up, but he kindly stayed on and recorded the finishes for us.
Our next DF 65 event in the Series is on December 1st at 12 noon

DF95 Saturday Series 2018 Event 6

29th September 2018

In ideal autumnal B rig conditions the majority of the Squadron were otherwise absent including DP representing the club at the IOM ranking.

Nevertheless six skippers enjoyed ten competitive races including with breaks for tuning and refreshments.
Tony W missed the first couple of races and admirably managed (including a 3rd) with his A rig. I am sure we will soon be seeing him sporting his new B.
The first one lapper saw David F taking the bullet and the remaining two lappers, over an excellent tacking course, proved to be fruitful for yours truly with DF in hot pursuit.

As you will see from the results sixteen of the Squadron raced on a Saturday and we also welcomed a couple of guest appearances with Tim Lanigan being the overall winner.

The next 95 racing is the first of the winter series on Saturday, November 10th when we will be starting at 12 NOON to allow for the available daylight hours.

DF65 Saturday Series 2018 Event 6

15th September 2018
It was all about the minor places as John continued his good form this Series to take the title in this the final event of our Saturday Series.
Ten skippers turned out for our new start time of 1pm, and with a light unpredictable shifting wind, A rig was the sail of choice. A figure eight course was set and twelve races were had in the time.
Garry sailed well and took three bullets finishing in second place, but it was John who out performed us all by taking seven firsts and five seconds.
Only one breakdown of note this week, Bob Jones a servo replacement caused him to miss the first three races.
Thanks to Peter for RO.
We now move on to our Winter Series which starts on Saturday October 20th at 1pm.
