DF95 Autumn Series 1

An unwelcome guest to the Squadron was ‘Brian’ a building storm force wind and, more consequential, the horizontal rain which resulted in even the five never-say-die skippers calling it a day and retreating to the welcome shelter of the clubhouse. 

The first two races around a course kindly set by Tim L were completed sporting B rigs and as ‘Brian’ became more of a factor a break and a change to C rigs was a no-brainer. The remaining two races were a matter of survival with yours truly suffering perhaps the only ‘Jelly Attacks’ of the day! On the plus side Chris C successfully tested his repaired leaking hull and there were no breakages which, considering the conditions is a testament to the design and development of the 95.

 

Congrats to Tim L on yet another set of firsts and many thanks to Peter Jackson who acted as RO.
