DF65 Series 2 Event 5

Thursday 5th July 2018

A great turnout of eleven skippers enjoyed a good nights racing which began on B rig, and later on as the wind dropped most of us changed to A.

A shifting wind made it difficult at times, with nobody enjoying taking on the dreaded mark on the far side of the lake, a few expletives were heard at times as sailors either missed the mark or were pushed off course by the shifts, but credit to all for persevering.

The first four races comprised a beat, a reach, and a run and as time was on our side we changed the course to include a beat to the finish for the remainder.

John and Eddie continued with their battle in this series, and took first and second place respectively. With two events left, thirty four points separate them.

Thanks to Peter for doing the starts and scoring on the night.

Our next DF65 event is on 12TH July 6.30pm.
