Another fantastic day at the lake for round of the DF 95 summer series , winds from the south west around 12/ 14 knots made it just B rig although there were three A rigs trying it .
We welcomed Chris and Lisa More, from Askern and the morning started with Specific training to the DF 95 , this was taken by Mick Chamberlain and included setting up the boat and rig with visuals on an actual boat so all could see what they are trying to achieve each time they put the boat on the water, approximately one hour, The script and also some DF 95 measurements have been added to the website but care should be taken , as we do not know how correct they are,
Racing got underway around 1045 with 11 skippers ( good for bank holiday weekend ) and Chris More on a B rig took the first bullet in fact he took the next two races, Mick C was on the A rig he did the training on and was in close contention for a couple of races but it was clear it should be B rig and at coffee break after three races he changed down.
Roger Bowtle and Jen Hand had some good races as did Lisa More still struggling with her A suit.
The wind picked up a little towards the end but at least the rain held off, It seemed that changing down for Mick C did the trick as he took all remaining four races, after the coffee break when a load of cakes appeared from nowhere ( many thanks Diane) it was Rogers big birthday.
Hopefully the advice on tune and rig will have come in handy, and the “ process” can be used from here on in, Many thanks to the race team and especially Ivan and Roger. 7 good races and not a sign of Salad made for a great mornings racing.
