DF65 Series 3 Event 7

6th September 2018
What a joy to see thirteen dragons out on the water for this the final evening meeting of the year. C rig was the sail of choice for the majority of the fleet with a couple opting for the B.
A figure eight course was set as we got away at the new time of 6pm. Difficult conditions didn`t stop Derek, John and Chris leading the way as usual, but it was Derek who was unbeatable taking seven bullets and finishing ahead of John who was second by seven points.
Overall a good nights sailing in tough conditions was had by all, although there were a couple of breakdowns in the evening which were quickly remedied, and the boats were soon back on the water.
So that brings us to the end of Series 3, with John taking the title with maximum points, congratulations to him, and thanks to all for turning out over the summer evenings to make the Series such a success.
My thanks goes to Peter J for being race officer over the series, it really is a big help, allowing me to sail rather than worry about who’s over the line at the start etc.
We look forward now to the Winter Series, so get your coats, gloves and wet weather gear at the ready, it will be upon us soon. Doris is already charged and raring to go.

Here is the final result for the series

Wouldn’t it be great to see all 18 skippers on the water at the same time! (Editor’s comment)
