DF65 2018 Series 1 Event 1

Thursday 19th April

Well what a great turnout of 11 skippers for our first evening meet of the year, shame the wind was missing, barely a blow gave us no option but to set a simple up and down course and take pot luck as to whether you got a shift, but the cream as always came to the top, with Chris Haworth taking the honours for the evening, having missed the first race, so it became his discard, and Uncle Derek taking second spot.

A couple of breakdowns during the evening, notably Harry and Martin saw them pushed down the order, as they couldn’t complete the 6 races we achieved on the night, and Mike and Ken with sail and winch problems affected their results towards the end.

All in all a good evenings sailing was had, and we look forward to our next 65 event on Thurs 26th April 6.30pm.
