A great morning’s sailing marred by a DF 65 sinking during practice ,26 with Peter Webster at the helm and a full crew of three went down with out trace, close to number nine bouy the survivors were given hot coffe and a donut and sent home . Breeze was from the north west and strong enough for B suit which we carried for all 7 races, racing was from the South bank and a fair old beat and run, Most consistant were Phil and Mick andf it involved a count back as did second and third places, at this time not sure who the winner was and we may need to take advice.
Billy Mac started on C rig ?????? but then came to his senses and put B on and did very well winning race 6 . all in all a good blow out for the skippers with some close racing, Many thanks to all the helpers and Phil for the OOD duties, And if he has won very well done.
next round we would hope to get a few more skippers out so keep your eye on the calendar.
