DF65 2019 series 2 Event 3

20th June 2019

Eleven skippers turned out, for what was, a wonderful nights sailing, Dry, sunny, with about a 20mph blow, straight down the lake, champagne stuff.

B rigs all round, as we set off to tackle a figure eight type course, six single laps, and a couple of two lappers, were had in the time.

There were some pretty close finishes, but John with his sailing nous, always managing to get over the line first, and won the night comfortably taking six bullets. Walter with some consistent sailing came a well-deserved second.

Minor breakdowns for a couple of skippers cost them a few races, but on the whole it was a good night for sailing, and an enjoyable time was had by all.

We hope for some of the same next time out, which is on Thurs 27th June 6.30pm.
