Nine competitors showed up for round 1, of this series some from quite long distances, we have to thank 3 race officers one from Leicestershire one from Grimsby and one from the other side of Lincoln, They travelled so we could enjoy our racing , Hats off to them. 5 competitors out of a possible 25, An umbelievable poor turnout for such a nice day.
The breeze was quite light from the North and the I.O.M’s did three laps of a windward leeward course, and the DF 95 did two. 10 races were completed and Dave Burke sailing his brand new Brit Pop swept the board, with Keith Holmes in his 3 year old Chienz runner up in the I.O.M class. So many thanks Bert , Norman, and Roger. results below .
The DF 95 fleet was 4 boats out of a possible 5, and they had some close racing, unfortunatley Gordon B 38 slipped on the bank and snapped his mast, otherwise it could have been closer Mick Chamberlain took the honours on the day, with Ivan coming in second.
I do realize everybody has an agenda on a Sunday morning, but on this showing a lot more support is needed at the club.
