DF65 Saturday Series Event 5

For those that didnt make it Saturday morning, you missed a treat as we had A rig conditions verging on B, with a wind almost straight up the lake.

A beat to the windward mark, then a reach and a run down to a central mark, rounding and a beat to the finish, made for some exciting close races. In all we had sixteen at a leisurely pace, calling it a day around 3.30pm.

Sadly only six skippers turned out with Tim only doing the morning session, and Walter just the afternoon. John as always was in dominant form and easily took the honours, with the rest of us fighting it out for the minor places.

Darren with a battery problem was the only one with any issues, and we waited for him as he quickly sorted that out, and he was soon back on the water. Bob had to miss one race due to dealing with a new membership enquiry, so was given a last place in that race, rather than a DNS.

Thanks to Peter once again for RO duties.

Our next event in the Saturday Series is on the 15th September at 10 am.
