Another great day at Scotland farm 13 skippers contested some great racing with the DF 95 fleet. A steady breeze and all boats on A suit , racing was on the the East bank with the wind in the North East, it was a perfect beat and run, although some shady shifts were there to catch out the wary and unwary alike.
Mick C 46 was out of the blocks fast in race one, with Roger B 448 a close second , and Mike W 76 took the bullet in race two, with roger B 448 keeping his consistency by getting third spot. Jen H 69 and by her standards starting slow got the bullet in race three, The racing was very close throughout the fleet and it was great to see Gordon B 38 back in action, Mick c 53 was having some good results and will be pleased with his day , as will Alan N 438, We welcomed Colin Toll 431 as our visitor and we just need to help him with his set up and I am sure he will do well. Kevin E 02 started slow, but gradually got to grips with the rig, and will be a useful Radio sailor in the not too distant future.
At the end of the day, Mick C 46 had it all under control with ten points from 9 great races, Jen and Mike took the remaining places in a set of races with good manners, all round , in particular it was great to see skippers talking to each other, when close quarter combat was needed, The fleet at Lincoln is steadily improving, And everybody I am surer must have been pleased with the morning.
Very well done to the winner and all skippers and helpers.
Consistency, is what we all strive for and just sometimes it all works out.
This was the last DF race in the Winter series , The summer series will start in April , If your reading this and want some decent racing why not come and join us, you know it makes sense .
