DF65 2019 series 2 Event 4

27th June 2019

A beautiful sunny evening for the twelve skippers that turned out. With a strongish gusting wind coming from the East, the majority set out on B rig, to tackle a sausage shape course of nine races.

Wind conditions were ever changing, and with the gusts coming and going, sometimes it was more of an advantage for those who were on the A rather than the B, either way it was a challenging nights racing and all good for the experience.

With five different skippers taking bullets on the night it shows that it wasn`t all one way traffic, and it was good to see many getting good results, and pushing the more experienced skippers like Chris, who with his tally of thirteen points including three wins earned him top spot on the night.

Newcomer James had some sort of problem with a leak, and that spoiled his nights sailing, being only able to compete in four of the races, and unfortunately for Eric a receiver problem cost him a couple of races and possibly a higher place finish.

So another great nights sailing, and a good turnout, and we hope for much of the same next Thursday the 4th July 6.30pm, when we are back on the water with the 65.
