Another very nice morning at Scotland farm a bit damp to start but by the time racing started it had dried out. Racing started on the South bank as the breeze was 5 to 8 knots south East but after the Tea break we moved to the East bank favored by many. At 1100 hrs a two minute silence was held to pay our respects to the fallen, Doug Hearn gave a short chat on his family ancestry to relate what happened during that time, and I am sure many of us could relate many similar stories I am sure. Mainly a A + rig day but some heavy gusts had many rushing to change down to smaller rigs, Mick C with his green A + rig mastered the conditions well, after Roger B won the first race. A very good fleet of 11 skippers had some great racing. This class is steadily improving and will only get better, practice and commitment is key to learning how your DF 65 will handle under a variety of conditions.
Well done to the race team and the helpers, the courses were quite long ( not that anyone was complaining ) and hence only seven quality races.

Round three is on 9th December, when there will be a twenty minute tuning guide chat by Mick C for those who arrive at 0900. There will also be Mince pies and a tot of mulled wine to steady your hands at the half time break.
