DF 95 Summer series Round four

Gonna be a sun cream morning , and so it was, 9 skippers showed up to be greeted with a light Breeze from the North West ,,, mainly , Ed quickly set a course up on the South bank and we were ready to go, For some reason Pete W was not ready to go for race one and got sorted from race two. Roger B 448 won the first race in convincing style with Graham K 79 taking second spot , and Alan N 438 taking third, it was a good start line but made tricky because at the last minute or few seconds the wind would shift 20 degrees, so the ideal place to loiter was around the middle of the start line, Pete W now sorted and took the next bullet, closely followed by Mick C 46, and Alan N 438 keeping up his consistency with another third place, The next three races were Mick C 46 taking the bullets and looking unstoppable, when you have light winds the twist and set up are critical, as well as spotting any dark shadows on the water and getting there as quick as possible Kevin, Mike and Colin were sailing well and so was mick C 53 who has been missing for a few weeks, who indecently had to leave early due to family commitments. at the end of the Morning Pete W 678finished off with two Bullets and sealed the win, from Mick C 46 Proving yet again he is the man to beat at the farm in recent weeks, Sailing was done in great spirit with 9 races completed in the morning , Many thanks to all the helpers especially Roger B 448 who was there at the crack of dawn to get things ready for the race team,

Congratulations to Pete for the great win.

Missing a few skippers and I am sure they will be around for round five .
