DF65 2019 series 1 Event 3

2nd May 2019

A brilliant night of sailing was had by the ten skippers who turned out, in what were near perfect conditions for a change.

Our RO Derek got us underway at 6.30 pm prompt, setting a sausage shape course and with all the fleet on A rig. With respect being shown on the start line, all the ten races we got in got away cleanly and with no recalls.

Most of the races were quite tight and competitive, and with five different skippers taking at least one bullet, it was always going to go down to the last race before the winner was confirmed.

Chris managed to get through the last race unscathed and took a win, so he was the confirmed winner on the night, from Eric in second.

A disappointing evening for the Rose Family as their boats played up all night with differing problems, but Mark managed to get on the water with his Dads boat for a few races and took a couple of bullets.

So a great night on the whole, and we hope for much of the same next time out, which is on Thurs 9th May  6.30pm start.
