Wall to wall rain greeted the13 skippers for round five of the Championship , in a very nice south easterly breeze , Top suit was favoured just,, and we saw two new B/P racing and doing very well. Jen’s old B/P was sold to Graham K who raced it for the first time and had a consistant morning. Jens new B/P was also going very quick, It was good to see Alan N GBR 0 having a decent day and even more impressive was Bob G who had his problems, but when the boat was going he posted two wins. The racing was good all through the fleet, and eventual winner Keith H gbr 88 with his new B/P will be a force to be reckoned with by the time the summer series comes around , Well done Keith, and we must also give a big thank you to Graham Allen for a super job as OOD with help from one or two other skippers it made for a very enjoyable morning ,, Apart from the rain of course .
The DF 95 fleet was down to three skippers but provide some good racing and hopefully a DF convert in Graham Allen, who was well in the mix untill the winch drum came off in the second to last race. Ivan won the split decision posting 4 wins to Gordons 3 , exciting racing but the rain spoiled it for most after all we are not getting any younger but at least we are all home now and dried out . Well done Ivan
