DF 65 Winter Series Round 7 10th March 2019

Nine skippers braved a forecast that failed to materialise and gave some great A+ suit sailing until the last race, Mick Chamberlain was certainly very fast today winning the first five races and Ivan S was the most consistent skipper gaining second spot. Sailing took place on the south bank and to start was straight giving a great beat and run course, as the morning progressed the wind swung into the west and the course was changed to starboard rounding instead of port, the rain came down around 1130 making it fairly miserable and then the wind increased to make the last race impossible if you persisted with A + , as you can see from the retirements in race 6 with only three finishers.

This was the last in the DF 65 winter series , many thanks to The OOD and all the helpers especialy Roger Bowtle who did more than his fair share.

We now look forward to the Summer series starting in April when I believe we shall have fleets aproaching 15 .
