DF 65 Winter series round 3, 30th January 2022

Wow after the gales of Saturday In which some mad nutter sailed there boats at the farm with C rigs !!!! we had a very blissful start, in fact so blissful there was only a dogs breath for the first race, Which was won by Mick C 46 , Pete got the second spot, And Dave Rigby romped home with third, For race two and beyond we all moved to the East bank where, correct me if I am wrong the wind really filled in and we got a whole knot of wind, that is of course after we had had our early coffee break, It really was a good fleet out 14 skippers and there was a lot of helpful tuning on the bank , to the less experienced skippers, Mike W 76 winch packed up I hear on race 5 , just when we were getting 3/4 knots ,, Roger B 74 was having a much better day, and was enjoying himself. Pete W 65 was playing a very consistent game with three second places before his bullet in race 4 , but then Mick C 46 bounced back as the breeze fill in a bit with two bullets in races 5 and 6 giving him three race wins in all ( he told me to tell you that ) Pete W 65 and Keith managed two each , with Mike W 76 claiming the other win. The breeze had started to fill in and there was some great races. There was an incident in one of the races, between two skippers, and although the results will stand the issue I hope will be sorted over the next couple of weeks so we all know what may be acceptable for club racing, So no need to worry your little heads at this time. .

So Many thanks to the Race team and Roger B for organising the event so well in trying conditions , and of course well done to the green machine of Pete Walters, who took the win on the day that was held in the very best spirit that you can all be proud of , Keep your eye open for the accumulative results coming soon .
