DF65 Series 3 Event 6

30th August 2018
The good news was, there were no jelly fish in sight, and no weed, but the bad news was, sadly very little wind for the penultimate event of series three.
Once a start line had been decided upon, as what little wind there was, was shifting all the time as it came and went. Eleven skippers set out to try their luck on a figure eight course, mainly one lappers with a couple of two lap races before darkness fell.
We made the best of what there was, and it was good to see four different skippers taking bullets from the eight races, but it was John once again who edged it with three from the eight and four seconds. Ken too was in good form taking three bullets also, and finishing close behind in second spot.
So with John doing enough to clinch the Series with one event to go, it will be interesting to see who turns out next week to fight over the minor placings.
Thanks to Peter for Race Officer Duties on the night.
