Fantastic mornings racing , 13 skippers turned up in this more than popular one design class. Racing took place on the South Bank, with a steady A rig breeze around 8 to 10 knots from the North West, We welcomed a visitor from down sarf Neil and are sure he enjoyed the racing. Firstly I must apolagize for the lack of specific training , my fault entirely in failing to be clear what was Required .
Keith H got off to a great start winning the first race with Mick and Jen hard on his transom, role reversed in race two with Mick taking the win from keith and Pete getting third spot. the racing was good up and down the fleet, and there were some great tussles, Mick and Keith had a good look as some skippers set ups, to try and maximise rig tune. The course was just a little one sided but it was the same for all. The sun shone and at the end of the morning we were all quite warm. Mick just took the honours but was pushed all the way, Bill just squeezed out Mick Co on countback. Have a look at the results everybody , and try to work out where you may have been able to do just a bit better, there will be races you remember vividly and think ?,$£!)( .
Great racing , and thanks to Mick Co and Ed for officiating and Keith for handing out some info on adjustments to DF 95 rig
We could soon be 15/16 skippers in this class, and the one design aspects means boat set up , and how you handle the start and first beat are paramount .
