DF Squadron Report


Series 1 Event 6 | Tuesday 23 May 2017

As you will see from the results table Shaun Holbeche dominated the fleet of nine who also had the added hazard of bandits at six o’clock ie Jelly Fish! This made for some amazing reversals of fortunes as they have no prejudice to who they cling to.

Nevertheless, and even allowing for a very fickle WSW failing breeze, we managed eight one lap races and gained valuable tuning knowledge for the forthcoming Nationals.

We are have another DF95 POP-UP this coming Bank Holiday – Monday the 29th – 10.30am. This is another golden opportunity to avoid the traffic jams and prepare for the Nationals in Milton Keynes.


Series 1 Event 6 | Wednesday 24th May 2017

A few spits and spots from a sea fret before the start had us thinking we might be in for a wet evening but no, just overcast and no bl**dy wind again!! A simple course of an obtuse angled triangle finishing on a run proved quite a challenge: six skippers each taking a first place including Tim S who had his first ever first place. (Since he bought that s/h boat from John Tush he’s shooting up the leader board! Think JT might have forgotten to remove the turbo drive!)
