DF65 2019 series 2 Event 5

4th July 2019

What a great sight to see twelve Dragons on the line for the start of the fifth event in the series.

With about a 10mph Westerly almost straight down the lake, it made for some nice beats and runs. A triangular type course was set of two laps, and we had eight races on the night, the last race being changed to a sausage shape with a long beat to the windward mark, then a run down to a gate, back up to the windward mark, and then a run for home. The wind was pretty constant with no vicious gusts as of late, so A+ was the sail of choice.

It was good to see that bullets were being shared around, and in the end it was all very close, as only one point separated the top three, but it was John who edged it over Bob and Eric, Bob taking second place just, on count back.

So overall a brilliant nights sailing, not quite champagne conditions, but not far off, certainly better than we have had just recently, and we hope for much of the same when we are back on the water with the 65 on Thursday 11th July at 6.30pm.

Thanks to Derek for Race Officer Duties and scoring.
