DF65 2019 series 2 Event 7

18th July 2019

The last event in the series saw an excellent turnout of thirteen boats on the water. With about a 17mph wind, a sausage shape course was set to start, and as the wind fluctuated and changed a little, the course was altered several times as we progressed, to enable us to get our customary eight races in.

With Garry and John equal on points for the series going into this event, all eyes were on who would come out on top on the night.

John with four bullets and two seconds counting, was enough for him to take the honours for the event, and also the series.

For the rest of us there was some good racing going on, and a lot depended on how quickly you could get on port tack from the start, and get across the starboard boats, as it was an advantage, and went a long way as to where you finished in the race.

So that brings us to the end of this series, but no rest, as we are back at it again next week with the start of a new series.
