DF65 Series 3 Event 6

27th August 2020

A good fleet of eleven skippers night of racing, was spoilt by the persistent drizzle and the lack of wind.

It was the A+ rig that was out again, and for those that didn`t have one they were going to struggle.

With the little breeze we had in not too kind a direction, we were forced to have a long diagonal start line, with a kind of a beat to a windward mark, then across to a spreader with a run to a leeward mark, and a beat to the finish.

It was awkward and slow going with what wind there was, so much so we only managed six races on the night before we had to halt proceedings.

Best of the bunch on the night were Garry and Mark, who again sailed the most consistent.

Our next outing for the 65 is on Thursday 3rd September with a 6pm start.
