DF Squadron Club Racing Series 2 No.5

DF65 Fleet Wednesday 5th July

A partnership of Derek and Phil Halliday was, as expected, unbeatable taking first place in 6 of the 8 races, the other two going to Robin and John. The light wind proved problematic for the novices among us, particularly yours truly and a second place by Derek with my boat proved that the problem is not the boat but as Peter Jackson says, ‘The pratt between the sticks’! As usual the results and positions to date below.

DF95 Fleet Tuesday 4th July

Whilst I was being blessed with a primary school music prom I am in debt to Chris C for standing in at short notice and his following report.

All talk is of the impending RM Nationals this coming weekend and the first competitor to set up in the car park was Phil Holliday who borrowed Derek’s boat. Meanwhile Derek was intent on honing his PRO skills but did make a guest appearance to win race 5. In almost ideal conditions with wind from the west the racing was close throughout the fleet with Dave, Phil and Chris managing to get away and John getting his mojo back towards the end. The ever improving duo of Rob and Bob had a close tussle and Susan getting more confident as shouts of starboard echoed round the lake.
