DF65 2016 Third Series 4th Meeting 17th August

A warm sunny evening as forecast with a lightish ESE wind, i.e. blowing from the club house; this caused a bit of a dead spot at the windward mark and finishing line. We had eight skippers, holidays taking their toll. Eric had problems with his RC kit losing control as his boat got half way across the lake; quite a few skippers suffer from this and as yet we have no explanation for it. Anyway we achieved our customary eight races over a course set by Derek. He had to alter the finishing line after race one because he couldn’t read the sail numbers at the far end of the line! Note in race 7 we had our first dead heat, for second place. Usual results below.
