DF65 2019 series 1 Event 2

25th April 2019

A wonderful turnout of thirteen skippers for the second event of our evening series, which was delayed slightly. As we were about to get underway a heavy downpour with thunder and lightning came through, and had us dashing to the clubhouse for cover, it soon passed and we were out again only to find the wind had dropped considerably, but there was enough for us to get cracking.

A figure eight course had been set with a start across the end of the lake by the bridge, then a run to mid lake and across and back again. Garry was on song once again taking the first five races and it was clear he was going to be the winner on the night with his consistency.

As darkness drew in we just managed to get our customary eight races in for two discards to count, much needed for a few, as some had terrible starts getting used to the conditions, and there was the odd breakdown here and there.

Many thanks to Derek for being RO and doing the scoring.
