DF95 Series 3 Event 5

Tuesday 21st August 2018

Eleven of the Squadron negotiated eight one lap races with blessed sunshine in a light breeze which proved to be very testing as picking the shifts and the start positions were essential to a good result.

At the end of racing the ‘room for water off the bank situations’ resulted in Derek kindly updating us on rules, which could prove invaluable, especially to those involved in the IOM Nationals this coming weekend.

The course almost covered the full length of the lake and the one lap races saw Shaun H taking the honours with seven bullets – almost a full house!

Due to fading light:

Event 6 is next Tuesday, the 28th August at 6pm

DF65 Series 2 Event 6

12th July 2018
Again a fine turnout of eleven skippers, battled with the A rig conditions which were forever changing and very fluky to say the least. Eight races were had over a course which was simple but quite challenging. Derek joined us for the first time this series being clear of commitments, and duly took the honours for the evening, closely followed by John. A quick mention for Walter and Bob Jones, our newest member, both are improving very quickly and had some fine results on the night.
A couple of breakdowns this week, battery problems after four races for Tony spoilt his evening, and a switch problem for John caused him to miss out a couple of races, but he got that sorted and came back to take three bullets, to keep up his challenge for the title.
Many thanks to Peter for being RO
Our final event of this series is on Thurs 19th July 6.30pm.

DF65 Series 2 Event 5

Thursday 5th July 2018

A great turnout of eleven skippers enjoyed a good nights racing which began on B rig, and later on as the wind dropped most of us changed to A.

A shifting wind made it difficult at times, with nobody enjoying taking on the dreaded mark on the far side of the lake, a few expletives were heard at times as sailors either missed the mark or were pushed off course by the shifts, but credit to all for persevering.

The first four races comprised a beat, a reach, and a run and as time was on our side we changed the course to include a beat to the finish for the remainder.

John and Eddie continued with their battle in this series, and took first and second place respectively. With two events left, thirty four points separate them.

Thanks to Peter for doing the starts and scoring on the night.

Our next DF65 event is on 12TH July 6.30pm.
