A baking hot week preceeded our Sunday morning with tempretures well into the 30,s ,,,,,,,,, but we all rocked up , 13 of us ,to fine misty rain a decent breeze from the North West and no sign of the sun , We had a chat for the first hour on how to set up and tune ( the DF 95) the basics, and then tried to do a few practice starts, Unfortunatley the wind direction was not where we really wanted it on this occasion as we had decided to sail on the East bank to stay away from some nasty green stuff on the south bank, any way enough of all that , it was great to see Chris and Lisa More again and a new visitor from Market Bosworth Andy Soars, all welcome to race any time, and we hope they all enjoyed it . For just about the first time this year a bit of floaty salad came into play and made life a tad difficult for most skippers at some time or other , the racing was tight all around the fleet and skipper were for the mst part doing their turns when they should , the start as I said before was not perfect but sometimes you just have to bite the bullett and get on with things, Mick C won the first three races before the dreaded weed struck, and both Chris and Andy had some good races, Lisa gets better everytime she comes to Lincoln and must be please with her 2nd and 3rd, Jen was a little slower today but as I said the weed did not care who got in the way.
Results below and just a hearty vote of thanks to all the helpers and especially Roger B who had all sorted for the race team . He also sailed much better than normal, just got a little excited on the final mark before the finish in one race I notticed, But maybee a lesson learned ( dont tack to early for the mark ,, make sure you can lay it easy ) far better to tack and the have to bear away , than tack and then have to pinch to get round !!!!!
great turnout, great banter, hope to see you all in about three weeks time for some more exciting DF 95 racing
