DF Squadron 18th Feb 2017

First up were the DF95s, Garry’s report follows:-

Today we welcomed John Brookes and Mike Benson to our ever expanding fleet and yet again in a maiden race John takes the bullet; Mike’s boat, in the very capable hands of Derek (even with a faulty rudder) gets a credible 4th.

Chris Chatfield, fresh from his extended antipodean vacation, also graced us with his presence and took the overall honours in eight closely contested races which saw wins for four different skippers who were faced with a challenging and fickle breeze coming from varied directions.

Thanks to Derek for acting as RO and his continual rules guidance.

Results below (I’ll get to grips with the MYA spreadsheet eventually!)

 Next up were the DF65s

Derek decided to race his DF65 so for the other eight skippers it was a case of racing for second place which Garry achieved again. Chris C normally shines with his 65 but not today; perhaps he was overcome with his success on his first DF95 outing!

Results and positions to date below.
