Another fine day at Lincoln, 11 skippers showed up to some great racing conditions, Breeze around 8 to 10 knots from the West south West and racing was on the South bank, The OOD’s did a great job in sorting the course which had a nice little dog leg giving two shorter beats close to the bank. We welcomed Graham K 79 to the DF 95 fleet and by all accounts he thoroughly enjoyed his morning.
Mick C got off to a great start taking the first win, it seemed the start was very much to his liking and many more clean get away starts. The beats were as per usual very shifty, and one wrong move could take you from hero to _______ yes you guessed it Jen H 69 got the 2nd in race one and followed through with a bullet in race two. Kevin E 02 missed the first race for some reason or other but he and Mike W 76 were having a great battle just off the lead and for first time out Graham K 79 was close to joining in, Racing was close up and down the fleet, it was a fantastic day with wind and weather combining to make it very pleasurable, (Now I have just remembered) Mike W asked for redress in one race, I forgot all about it till sorting this write up, so If Mike could furnish full details to me, I will chat with Pete W to see if we can award, some kind of redress . The day belonged to Mick C 46 , he seemed to be unstoppable scoring 8 points from 9 races including five on the bounce, Pete W 768 had a close run in with Jen H 69 with only one point separating them, well done to all skippers and helpers for the mornings activities , it really was a great days racing
