DF65 Saturday Series 2018 Event 4

9th June 2018

A short delay was needed for the start of our Event Four in the Saturday Series, as we waited for the wind to pick up. We didn’t have long to wait before there was enough for the nine skippers to get on the water with A rigs, and start the day’s proceedings. A simple triangular course was set and we enjoyed a full days racing in what was fair to good conditions in the main, if a little iffy in places.

Sixteen races were completed in the day, with six different skippers taking bullets, but it was David, John and Garry who were always up at the front, and it was always going to be between those three who got the glory. It was a close call in the end as David and John finished on the same points, but on countback David got it.

All in all a good days racing in the warm sunshine, and with only a couple of breakdowns which were quickly rectified. I think all enjoyed the day, even if there was a little bit of moaning about the conditions early on.

Many thanks to Peter for being Race Officer and Scorer.

Our next event in the Saturday Series is on the 4th August 10am start.
