DF65 2016 Third Series 2nd Meeting 3rd August

The forecast tonight was 40+mph winds so I turned up (less boat) not expecting to see anyone else. Surprise, surprise five skippers setting up C rigs (4) and one B rig.

After some ‘should we shouldn’t we?’ they decided to give it a go and we set a course at the far end of the lake, as the water seemed less turbulent there. All the boats struggled at times but well done to Mike who kept going with his B rig right to the end, despite a few crashes into the wall. After six races in about an hour and a quarter all had had enough, no boats suffered damage and should be OK for Saturday afternoon. Results below.
